Even after all these years

Even after all these years, you don't understand me; atleast that's how you make me feel
I keep things locked up inside, not showing at all what's real
I may tell you one thing but you don't remember or you forget
We end up in a huge fight, with both of us upset
The names you call, the way you tease, the tears you make me cry-
You always put the blame on me when all I did was try
-You tell me that you love me, yet, some things you say are mean
You always says that I am wrong with circumstances unforeseen
I try to tell my side of things but you always think I'm lying
In the end, you MUST be right so why do I keep trying?
Take a look and listen to the things you do and say
Those around you see and hear, but you seem to be miles away
There are times I tell you things and you acknowledge that you heard
But if I later bring it up, you say I never mentioned a word
You hate for me to say anything cause you think I'm not on your side
But when you turn my words around, it's like I'm the one who lied
-In "your" world your always right; my opinion only matters to me
And as far as not being on your side, that's where I disagree....
I try to make a point to you, only yours is clear-
The only words you understand, are those you want to hear
Why can't just one time you give me the benefit of the doubt?
Why can't we work together until it's all worked out?
You never give me any credit even when brought to your attention
But all you see is the fault of me and that's all you ever mention
I try to listen to you without butting in... I take what you thought was wrong
And try to make it right again
Disagreement over many things, my way, your way, or neither-
When I do, agree with you; you do not notice that way either
Maybe the way one person talks, is not what the other one hears
But I don't understand why you don't understand me.......
Even after all these years
