There was a time in my life when I needed you, but you weren’t there.
A time in my life when I felt as if no-one did care.
I was alone, depressed, and in desperate need of someone to love.
My life was in ruins; I’d just about had enough.
When I needed you the most of all, you were nowhere to be found.
I was chained by regrets; I was terminally bound.
Nothing in my life was as it had been before, it was different now.
Everything difficult, as I wiped my brow.
I called for you. Yet I never heard your reply.
You never came for me, I don’t understand why.
I was there for you, when you needed me.
Why can’t you do the same and set me free.
My body ached for your presence to be around my side.
But you never were, you choose to hide.
As life for me weakened, and your pride grew strong,
I realized that when I chose you, I’d been wrong.
All this time I spent thinking about you was a total waste.
I just wish I would of known before I’d sampled evil taste.
Misinterpretations of you, fully clouded my mind.
The memories I made with you, I’ll easily leave behind.
You’re just a nice body, with a pretty little face.
Nothing more, except for shame and disgrace.
I once thought that you were the one.
But how quickly dreams fade as trust comes undone.
What’s done is done. And what’s past is in the past.
Nothing can be changed now, my heart has been trashed.
There was a time I loved you so very much.
Now I cringed at your voice, and most especially your touch.
Dead, gone, past away. It’s the way things must end.
The time has come, I’ve got my bags, I’m headed into the wind.
Though we once had a spark, it never made a flame.
So I’ll be leaving you, and we will never be the same.
