through the rose tinted looking glass

selfish people like to say

they never meant for it to be this way

so if thats the case help me understand

whom exactly forced your hand?

you try so hard to make things right

and yet you’re busy every night

I hear its happiness that you seek?

my god you really are so weak

look around you, at what you had

all lost because of this senseless fad

if you weren’t happy with the love you had before

I can assure you it won’t be found outside the door

a selfish person once said to me

‘I need to put myself first and be free’

so you go ahead, spread your wings wide

push your unconditional love to the side

but let me remind you my lesson in this hurt

those you think love you can so easily desert

and who will you turn to when you’re left in the dust

ah, those rose tinted glasses will need to adjust!

but I won’t help you, don’t you see?

for where were you each sunrise plea?

lost and confused in this foreign country

I’d stay up and whisper ‘please fight for me’
