We used to be the greatest pair
That ever walked those lonely halls.
With every kiss, you did repair
The wounds that forced me down to crawl.
I thought that you were one to trust;
I heard but truth in lies you told.
I care not for your aching lust—
I only want a hand to hold.
When you were done and had your way,
My darkest nights grew darker still.
I guess that’s just the price I pay
For waiting by your windowsill.
I should have known it wasn’t real;
I should have dropped that beer and ran.
I didn’t think that one could steal
A heart but now I know you can.
You managed to keep them at bay:
The monsters that were at my heels.
But now that you have gone away.
I’m broken and I’ll never heal.
