"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." -Maya Angelou


Tired eyes take me over
Like a storm cloud rolling in
Beneath your eyes, there is meaning
Yet the blank stare always wins

To my surprise I can’t help myself
I find the current pulling me back
In the distance, the sun is setting
But I don’t think this’ll pass

The beautiful girl cries herself to sleep

And I know what I did wrong
I have known all along,
but it was all for you
I wanted the best to be kept
for you

I still feel the warmth that you gave off
Or was it just my mind deceiving me?
Long awaiting for the perfect moment
And I’ll try not to sink deep within

Tired eyes take her over and
The beautiful girl cries herself to sleep

And I know what I did wrong
I have known all along,
but it was all for you
I wanted the best to be kept
all for you

The best isn’t always right
Time will turn the rock to sand
And with every breath taken,
I know that you question
maybe my life wasn’t worth makin’
for you

Sometimes you try your best to help others, but they don't necessarily return the favor.
