Since pride is my passion
As well as my downfall
I’ll never utter the words to him.
Tell him I gently laid my heart out
That night on the phone
Softly telling him what I felt
In hopes he would understand.
Tell him I waited for him to relent
Until I finally had to pick my heart up
Off the frozen ground
And turn away.
Tell him the part of me he could have had
Will forever be his.
There is so much wrong with me
I wouldn’t know where to begin
Tell him I don’t know how
To reach out to him.
Tell him I have nothing to apologize for
With the exception of giving away feelings
To someone that had no idea
How to receive such a gift.
Tell him I’ll be sitting right here
And we will see
Which reaches me first.
