I wanted you to notice me, but you were looking at her…
Sometimes you just have to pay attention to yourself

I wanted you to find me beautiful, but you said she was the prettiest girl you've ever seen...
Sometimes you just have to compliment yourself

I wanted you to take me to dinner, but you took her…
Sometimes you just have to eat alone

I wanted you to support me, but you were encouraging her…
Sometimes you just have to be your own cheerleader

I wanted you to travel the world with me, but she was holding your passport…
Sometimes you just have to make the journey alone

I wanted you to keep me warm, but you were snuggling with her …
Sometimes you just have to grit your teeth and grab a blanket

I wanted you to protect me, but you were sheltering her…
Sometimes you just have to save yourself

I wanted you to lie beside me every night, but she was next to you…
Sometimes you just have to sleep alone

I wanted you to love me, but you were with her…
And that's okay…
Because now I love myself
