Because Somehow I Forgot to Say...
Somehow, I forgot to tell you
just what you wanted to hear.
I forgot the words to say
that would keep you here.
I sat in silence, waiting,
for you to make the choice.
I could have changed your mind
if I hadn't forgotten my voice.
I forgot to say that I love you,
that I wish that you wouldn't go.
Somehow, I managed not to say
the things you needed to know.
I watched you walk away again,
and in that moment, I see,
that I just didn't want to say
what I knew would keep you with me.
Because you see, friend, though I love you
more than you will ever know.
You've broken my heart again and again,
and now it's time for you to go.
You left me once, you left me twice,
you left a thousand times.
I took you back, I loved you more,
but, this time, you crossed the line.
I closed the door in your face,
only then did you realize
what had come of your foolish ways
and all the blinding lies.
Your screams echoed off the walls,
and I just cried inside,
as I forced myself not to say
what I knew I needed to hide.

- Artist: Typo Positiv
- Description: I've been left by so many people. Now, when people want to leave, I make it easy for them. I push them out. Because I know that's the only way to keep them from changing their minds, to keep them from turning around and coming back only to put me through it all over again later. No more. I'll keep forgetting to say what I know you want to hear, because I want you to leave. Never come back.
