it was always you
so why couldnt it be you now?
now, when i needed you the most
it would benefit me
thats why
it could never be about me
it was always about you
so why would i think this time would be different?
how could i think you would have stayed
nobodys perfect, but thats what you are
and thats what you need
perfection... what a word
whos to say what exactly defines perfection?
you do, and she is it
you live together in a world of perfection,
untouched and unharmed.
why was i not your perfection?
why are you gone?
why do i always end up thinking of you?
and her
what is so good about her?
so many unanswered questions
answers which will never be found
the harder i look, the farther they run
will i ever catch up?
maybe i interrogate too much
asking too much, receiving too little
thats just the way it works
thats just the way you want it
you always get what you want
