Letting Go

Love could be a best friend,
But right now it's the enemy.
Go through every day having to pretend,
You don't love the person that doesn't love you simply.
It messes with your head man,
I don't know if I can stand,
Watching the one I love and,
Knowing it's something that'll never happen.
Welcome to the real world,
Yea cuts just like a sword,
Why do I feel like I lost something that I never had?
I can't look at you without feeling sad,
Knowing the one thing I wanted I'll never have.
I don't know how to deal with this I don't think I can,
Knowing there's no chance I'll be your man.
Why does this surprise me?
Why did I think I could live happily?
My life is problems as big as the sea.

Why is it this hard?
Why do we fall so hard?
I end up loving so hard,
So I end up losing so much.

It's all I can do to keep myself together,
Honestly I'm really bad at getting through the weather.
You were the one I turned to when I hurt,
Now that's the reason I feel like dirt.
You know the hardest thing is not getting mad,
Knowing it's not your fault I feel this sad.
I let myself fall, that's on me,
I would give anything to make you see.
Yea I would do anything for you no matter what,
No matter the hurt, the pain, or the cuts.
But see nothing ever changes that,
Whether you want me or not you have to know that.
That's what love is, wanting the best for someone,
I will do anything to help you get through the run.

Why is it this hard?
Why do we fall so hard?
I end up loving so hard,
So I end up losing so much.

You were my best friend, more than you know,
Most nights you were the only thing keeping me from sinking to low.
You know how many nights I sat with a knife?
If it wasn't for you I wouldn't be here tonight.
I owe my life to you, I mean that literally,
If my payment is letting go, I'll do that, but painfully.
Here's to goodbyes, to the day I thought I'd never see.
