You Said

I reach out for you
only to find you gone
I long for you to hold me in your arms
I cry, I scream
tears stream from my eyes
you said you loved me
you said you'd always care
you said that you'd hold me forever
if I was ever scared
that was five years ago
I hold your child now
hoping still you'd come back to me
for you have let me down
you said you loved me
you said you'd care
you said you'd hold me forever
whenever I was scared
I believed you
I loved you
and you riped out my heart
