It's not about success; it's about significance.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.


Verse One:
It’s seven at night; I just found out your secret
Now suddenly my stomach don’t feel right, and I just can’t believe it
The sun starts to fall as the hour turns to nine
But by ten I see you still haven’t called, and I think that I know why

Then finally I hear a ring coming from the phone
So as I answer I swallow my fear and prepare for the blow
What’s that you say? You say you’ve never done this before?
Well, there’s something you need to know anyway, so I won’t hide it anymore

Chorus:
What are you waiting for?
Go on and tell me that it’s over
‘Cause I already know about her
I wanna hear you say it; I promise I can take it
You’ve got nothing to lose
Don’t think about how it’s gonna hurt me
‘Cause I just want you to be happy
Even if my picture won’t be in your heart anymore
What are you waiting for?

Verse Two:
We were always meant, we were always meant to lose
Maybe I left too many words unsaid, like “You’re my life and I love you.”
I’ll try to forget that day when you closed the door
But looking back I’m starting to regret the words I told you before

Chorus:
I said what are you waiting for?
Go on and tell me that it’s over
‘Cause I already know about her
I wanna hear you say it; I promise I can take it
You’ve got nothing to lose
Don’t think about how it’s gonna hurt me
‘Cause I just want you to be happy
Even if my picture won’t be in your heart anymore
What are you waiting for?

Bridge:
And if my tears put up a fight, you don’t have to say you’re sorry
‘Cause if you really want to leave tonight, it’s totally okay with me
I know I’m gonna miss you, but I promise I’ll be okay
‘Cause we’re gonna find our happy ending someday, anyway

Chorus:
So what are you waiting for?
Go on and tell me that it’s over
‘Cause I already know about her
I wanna hear you say it; I promise I can take it
You’ve got nothing to lose
Don’t think about how it’s gonna hurt me
‘Cause I just want you to be happy
Even if my picture won’t be in your heart anymore
What are you waiting for?

This is my fourth song, which is about my second love the day he broke up with me. Everything happened as it is written here.
