How Could I?

You’ve seen my tears.
You’ve seen my hate.
I just keep seeing those years,
And I still never feel great.

You tried to help me,
But I didn’t see your care.
I’ve lost all that was meant to be.
Not being able to see you there.

Have I become what I tried not to be?
The hateful man that made you cry?
What has happened to me?
How could I?

I’ve seen your pain.
I’ve seen your tears.
I watched you leave on that train.
I faced my greatest fear.

You had to leave me.
I had hurt you.
Now I know what was meant to be,
Now I know what I should do.

I’ll prove myself to everyone.
I’ll prove myself to be true.
I’ll prove myself in the burning sun.
I’ll prove myself to be with you


Have I become what I tried not to be?
The hateful man that made you cry?
What has happened to me?
How could I?


I’ve seen myself fight.
I’ve seen the hate go away.
I know the time is right.
For you to come back and stay.

I’m no longer the man I used to be.
I will never make you cry.
I’ve changed what happened to me.
And no longer will I ask “How could I?”
