We’ve been through much worse, but it’s time to call it quits.
The fighting has intensified—same as the arguments.
Neither one of us respected the others privacy
I always told you the truth, yet you always said, “Dont lie to me.”
If the trust was broken, then this has no chance of lasting.
It was a storm that stayed over our heads with no signs of passing.
Together we were a whole but now we’re just a fraction.
Moving on without the other—time to put the plan in action.
Easily said, we had some problems with communication.
Both made each other promises, but we always kept the other waiting.
Never intentional. Deep down we shrived to give each other more.
For too long we denied we had issues, but now we can’t ignore.
We just hurt each other, time & time again
That what we once held so dearly was coming to an end.
It’d go from good to bad then worse. It’d change in a minute.
The picture we painted for our futures now have neither of us in it.
The relationship was unhealthy…for the both of us.
Some days I wanted to rebuild but others I wanted to blow it up.
We could start from scratch. But we knew we’d get the same result.
Love to hate to love, neither of us knew how we really felt.
I’d always try & take a negative & turn into a positive
Until one day we were just so sick of all of it.
The feelings we shared, guess we must have lost it
Because starting over now is no longer an option.
There was a time I used to be willing to fight for you.
But it all changed. I guess that’s what fights will do.
We didn’t agree on much, but that feeling we shared.
I always thought our arguments showed how much we cared.
Reached our boiling points, it’s like each of us had enough.
And we’ve been thru too much now to build it back up
As I sit here & reflect on everything that happened to us
It’s clear to me now that we just forgot about love.
