"Maybe it’s not always about love and boys. Maybe it’s about the little crushes and flirts in between. It's the moments that are before the permanent that are the most beautiful, like when the sun’s rising or when it’s setting. Maybe those are the moments that are suppose to take your breath away."

Today's the day I realiazed,
I've found self-destruction in disguise.
Even though I knew the truth, I forced myself to believe your lies.
But I have to admit, I'm so disappointed to say 'goodbye'.

I know you were aware that I felt it was too good to be true.
I lied to myself just to believe in you.
I kept hangin' on, while ignoring the truth.
&& the truth is, I was so cold-heartedly used.

You stood by my side,
looked me dead in the eyes,
&& persuaded me to believe in such perfect lies.
"I love you."
"'I'm gonna keep you for a while."
I bet you don't care that those words now bring tears to my eyes.

I never realized how lonely I really was before you came.
Now that 'this' is over, I finally recognize the pain.
All in all, I guess it was worth it in a way.
And though I know you don't care anyway,
I just thought you should know what I realized today.
