If we were a metaphor, I would be a flower and you would be rain.
(As soon as I grew up, you drowned me again.)

And darling, if we were colors, I think I'd be scarlet and you'd be bright red.
(I was always the duller shade.)

But we are not colors, or metaphors, or words that rhyme perfectly.
(Because I cared about you, and you never cared about me.)
