Tonight, you said goodbye.
Said I wasn’t good enough, not what you’re looking for in a girl.
Your sister tells me it’s “A twin thing”.
She meant it.
She told me why.
She told me you had other plans,
Other girls to date, other places to fulfill a needy heart.
Just because I swim and you run
Does not make us different in any way
We are still human; you should know that that would never change
You shattered my heart, not hearing me sobbing and
Soaking my pillow with tears,
That came from you.
Tonight you said goodbye.
Said I wasn’t good enough, not what you’re looking for in a girl.
Your sister tells me it’s “A twin thing”.
She told me you needed someone better,
Someone smarter,
Someone that likes to run and do the same sports as you do.
And here’s the truth, just because you run and I swim
Doesn’t mean we can’t be together.
Think.
Think about what you’ve done.
Think about the wet pillow filled with hatred and tears.
Think about the girl who relied on your sister for information.
Think about the guts it took for your sister to tell me.
Think about how I feel.
Think about why you couldn’t just tell me in person.
Think about what you’ve done….
Colt.
Tonight you said goodbye,
Said I wasn’t good enough, not what you’re looking for in a girl.
Well,
I’m just going to say it.
You are a selfish guy, one that only sets his precious heart on the one girl that makes him happy.
And who is that person?
It’s not me.
Tonight you said goodbye,
But I didn't listen.
