This In-Between Game

This In-Between Game

One day I realized
What you mean to me
Though love is there inside
It don’t seem to be
When I get close to you
You take a step back or two
And when I’m ready to move on
You show me that you don’t want us done

I looked into your eyes
Trying to see what you see
I felt so blind
Because your heart don’t match our scene
You’re trying to make me feel like a fool
I’m not going to chase after you
Why do you wait until you I’m leaving?
That’s when you’re to make a move

I looked into your eyes
They made me realize
That time’s not on our side
You’re letting love pass us by
I believed in you and me
I thought our love could be
But it was just a dream
It was just a fantasy

This in between game
Is so over played
My heart just can’t take
Another disappointing ache

If we’re going to be
Then let us be
But if we’re not, then I’ll set us free

I’m done with this in-between game

I Must Move On

I Must Move On

The words you speak
It means nothing to me
Because they’re just words
There’s no action

I’m at a point that I want us to end
I love you so much and it will heartbreaking
I can’t continue living through this pain
I don’t want my love to turn into hate

You’ve disrespected me for way too long
I let it got out of hand
I was too busy working every single day
I worked hard while you only played

You’ve become a burden
Even a blind man can see
You feel entitled
What makes you think you should be?

Love doesn’t entitle you to treat me any kind of way
You’ve taken advantage of me being easy going
I don’t like confrontation, I rather us speak what we have to say
All the yelling that you’re doing, is not my kind of game

I’m getting to the point where I don’t want to be here
I avoid coming home because I know an argument is near
I hate splitting up and I don’t want this to end
But unfortunately I have to listen to my spirit

I know this is going to hurt both you and me
My heart will ache for an eternity
But I have to stop this cycle of what we’re going through

My love, we must end, it’s time for me to make that move

Love’s History

 Love’s History

What becomes of a broken heart?
Will another love seem hard to start?
If you’ve been through love’s game
Then your mind will understand what I say

I don’t want to start again and again
Is this going to be my future history?
Heartbreak is no fun when you’re in it
Is avoiding it a mystery?

I remember falling in love
How good it felt then
We put a lot of time into us
And then we headed for an end

I’m trying not to repeat
This same love history
I do truly believe
There’s a solution for me

I’m going to be more patient
I’ll trust my head and heart
The situation will have to be more stable
Before I let down my guard

This history has been painful
I’m working to overcome
I want balance, I know I’m able

To get past this and find my one

I’m Still in Love With You

I’m Still in Love With You

You broke my heart on that February day
To my surprise, you turned and walked away
You left me in a state of mind that was displaced
There was no reason to treat me this way

I just can’t stop dreaming of you everyday
You’re in my mind, those thoughts won’t dissipate
I cried for you until my heart poured out like rain
The reminiscence of you is driving me insane

How can you forget all those memories we shared?
I know inside that you still care
Let’s keep our love alive and ignite a new romance
I’m thinking that we should give this another chance

Cause I’m still in love with you
I believe in my heart this is true
I feel you’re still in love too

Let’s get things back on track real soon

Walk In the Park

Walk In the Park

I remember when we used to walk in the park
We used to look at the birds
We stayed until dark
There was a lot of sight seeing

We walked together side by side
Then we would sit on the bench
We would talk about the future
And how we would never split

Those were the days
When our love was strong and good
We were so in sync
Even without talking, we understood

As we walked through the park
We would talk about everything
This was our usual spot
On summer and winter days

Oh what a memory
Oh how beautiful that was
Sometimes I want to have that back

Should we reconnect or stay moved on?

The Anger Inside of You

The Anger Inside of You

I can feel your spirit
When I walked into the room
You have so much anger inside
What did I do to you?

Why are we not cool?
Is the hatred growing?
When you shut down on me
This is what you are implying

Things don’t have to be this way
Talk to me, let’s communicate
If you can’t express to me what’s wrong
Then we’re working on our escape

Why did you ask me to stay?
If you had something wrong in your heart
If things keep going this way
We are destined to fall apart

It really makes me ache
We’re at a breaking point
This is the sound of heartbreak
That sound makes so much noise

This anger is building inside of you
Everyone can tell
You won’t give me any clues

And now our relationship will fail

It’s Time for Me to Leave

It’s Time for Me to Leave

There is something that I want to confess
While you were thinking of me
I was not thinking about you
I just can’t hurt you anymore
We’ve grown apart and so distant
I don’t want you full of animosity
So the best thing that I can do
Is to just leave
You can have this house
I’ll give you all the keys
I can’t live here anymore
It’s time for me to leave
Part of this is my fault
I knew this was coming
I should have opened up my mouth
And gave us a chance to solve it

You pushed me away
I just couldn’t handle it
You neglected me for days
Those days became months and weeks
We’re going through this routine
You know we’re not happy
I don’t think we can save this
This makes me feel so crappy
I thought we could work
I’m sorry I was wrong
We both should have what we deserve

Let’s leave each other alone
