In A Perfect World

In a perfect world, you would come running after me. Realizing how much I actually mean to you. Begging for me back changes made etc etc.
in a perfect world, you'd come to my door apologizing.

In a perfect world I wouldn't of had go walk away in the first place. Or you would of had but pop fucking decency to tell me the truth you didn't want me anymore. That's all I've asked and said if you don't want me to tell me and I'll leave.

But in reality you drove me away. Pushed me away when Things got to intense. So you felt dragging me along was the best way to fucking do this.

I mean really did you EVER think of how much that hurt me. All you had to do was ask me to leave or say you didn't want me...

You had to just go pretending to be there. Pretending to be mine.

I really can't fucking believe what you did. All you ever do is think about yourself.

All I ever did was love you and care. What do I get in return? This.
