why didn't someone stop me?

September 25, 2011
Why didn't someone stop me,
before I snapped?
Why didn't someone stop me,
before I broke in two?

It was all the same story,
Told time and time again.
Oh I'm sorry did I say something to you?

Why didn't you say something,
when I was driving away from you?
Why didn't you say something.
when I had the mad look in my eye?

It's all the same,
You tell me these lies,
As I watch you disappear in the back of my mirror.
Did I say something to you?

Why didn't you stop me,
before I messed up my life?
Why didn't you stop me,
when you saw I was drowning in my despair?

You keep holding me back,
Telling me it was fine,
Even when it was not,
Did it look like I needed you,
when I had it under control?

Why didn't you tell someone,
that I needed help?
Why didn't you tell me,
that you loved me as I did for you?

It was all the same,
Before I figured out,
That you never really cared,
About this broken little heart,
That I gave you.
Did it really matter that I really needed you?

Why didn't we just go our separate ways,
and have peace that we longed for?
Why didn't we say we did,
even when we didn't?

It's over and done with,
My story is done and gone with,
As yours just begins.
So tell me this,
Why didn't I do this sooner?

Beautiful. Sad, but beautiful.

Thank you, I didn't mean for it to be sad, but I some how ended up like that.
