Sometimes, we try to convince ourselves
Of things that aren’t true
Because we think it’s the right thing.
People fall in love with us
And we tell ourselves
We feel the same
Because we can’t bear
To see them with a broken heart
Especially if we’re the reason
And then, everything falls apart
And you realize you can’t keep lying
To them and yourself
Because you really do love them,
But not the way they love you.
