Scenery is nothing more than poetry.
Love is nothing more than chemicals.
'Cause fairy tales are just scribbled pages filled with happy endings and little white lies.
One person can make a difference, but a crowd can make a change.


Where did I go wrong?
I was right all along.
She was just a player,
But I took my chances and I loved her.
We were so happy together,
Though happiness doesn't last forever.
Sixteen days, we were doing great,
I would always come by and see her late.
A hug and a kiss, wish it lasted longer,
And before I left, she'd grip me stronger.
We said farewell under the moon,
I told her, "I'll see you again soon"
But after a while she started acting strange,
I couldn't feel her heart, it wasn't in range.
Now I'm wondering if our love was a lie,
No, I won't hold on, it can die.
I've never been one to take a break-up easy,
Always fought so she wouldn't leave me.
But in this case, I'll let her go,
There's so much I don't want to know.
I thought that we would be perfect from the start,
Be together, nobody would tear us apart.
Then you went and changed things around,
Got my hopes up, just to let me down.
I put everything I had into that relationship,
But when an obstacle appeared you quit.
This is not how love is supposed to work,
Do you have any idea how much you left me hurt?
And all I was, was faithful and true,
But I guess I'm just not good enough for you.
Later, she said, "You can be a close friend,"
Although, it won't be real if I pretend.
Don't worry about me, I'll be okay,
Leave me alone, to you there's nothing I wanna say.
Then again, maybe it's not too late,
To mention I hated our date.
You never paid attention to a thing I did,
Too busy making eyes to that other boy you were with.
Insisting the two of you were friends and nothing more,
Well, you can't fool me, not like before.
I was treated like a decoy,
While you sent hearts to another boy.
That's okay, that's alright,
I'll never see you ever again late at night.
So think twice before you text me, I don't want to you call,
I can't state enough, that I don't care about you at all.
Now I'm wondering if our love was a lie,

Save your apology,
It doesn't mean a thing to me.
Get out of my life, you're not welcome here,
I can say it with a straight face and not shed a tear.
I'm better off on my own,
And before you came, I was doing fine alone.
So, please, just go, I can't handle another lie,
This is goodbye...
I thought that we would be perfect from the start, (Perfect)
Be together, nobody would tear us apart. (Together)
Then you went and changed things around, (Changed)
Got my hopes up, just to let me down. (Let me down)
I put everything I had into that relationship, (Everything)
But when an obstacle appeared you quit. (Quit)
This is not how love is supposed to work, (No)
Do you have any idea how much you left me hurt? (Hurt)
And all I was, was faithful and true, (Faithful and true)
But I guess I'm just not good enough for you. (For you)
Not good enough for you,
I guess I'm just not good enough for you.
I was faithful and I was true,
But I guess I'm just not good enough for you.
I'm just not good enough for you...


The author's comments:
So, in the end, Ashley and I didn't work out. She told me it'd better if we broke up and that way she wouldn't cheat on me. Well, thanks for telling me you're a player! I wasted 16 days of my summer spending it with her, when I could have been partying with my friends. All and all, her and I just weren't meant to be together. But thanks to her, I got inspiration to write a new song and thus adding it to my collection. I hope you like my song, and all the rest that I have written and will write. Thanks goes out to everyone who reads my work, rates it, and comments. It means a lot!
