Selfish Love

March 28, 2014
You said "I love you"
so many times

Its starting to feel
like one big lie

You came into my life
with the whisper of the wind

I didn't know that one day
that you'd be my friend

Through the good and the bad
you stuck by side

But, now that its over
I have to tell you goodbye

You were selfish
and you kept me close

But, now that I'm gone
where will you go

I'm to good for you
people always say so,

So, i'll ask you one more time
where will you go..?

I love the emotion in this, and the open-endness. My one issues is wouldnt it be "stuck by my side?" instead of stuck by side?

I messed up on writing the sentence but yeah it was supposed to be "stuck by my side"

i feel like the rhymes are slightly forced, you want it flow more, but i still enjoyed it^^
