Behind Those Eyes

Behind these eyes,
are all your lies,
the times you took my heart and broke it in two.
The times I swore I was done with you.
Yet here we are.
You still won't listen.
You never did.

Behind these eyes,
are all those times.
The times you hated to be wrong,
so I proved you right.
The times you promised.
And I listened.
The times you told me you loved me.
The times you said I was the only one!

Behind those eyes is the mind to see,
That I never deserved this.
That I can do better.
Behind those eyes is the strength to leave you behind.
Behind those eyes no longer belongs to you.
