I didn't want a bouquet of roses
Or box of chocolates
I didn't want a romantic evening
Because with, you I'd be fine
But I at least wanted a phone call
Yo didn't have to buy a card
You didn't have to write a poem saying how in love you are
I at least wanted a message
Internet or otherwise
But maybe your 'I love you's'
Were just a bunch a lies
Honestly, I'm not hurt
Or mad
Or disappointed
Honestly, I knew you wouldn't
Call or message at all
Honestly, I thought you'd prove me wrong.
I thought you'd say those words to me
But then I laughed at the thought and how silly it would be
I hoped that you would prove me wrong
But even when we met I knew
That you wouldn't be the one
I never brought the subject up
Or dropp those annoying clues
I did what I always have
And left it up to you
I didn't ask for candy
Or a moonlit night
I didn't ask for flowers
Or for you to spend the night
I didn't ask for anything
I thought a message I might get
But, sadly, I got nothing
The same as every year
I should've never started hoping
Even if the hope was small
Especially if I had to ask
For you to at least call.
To show that you loved me at all.
