This can't go on
All hope is dead and gone
I don't love one like you
'I'm still waiting'
Even your sweetest words won't do
My life is mine alone
Our future is unknown
Why can you not see?
Stop. This isn't necessary.
I'll manage, you needn't worry.
This is all my fault
Our lives won't come to a halt
I need to set this right
So let's end the fight
It's a big world out there
You'll find many with whom to share
I can't see you hurt like this
It isn't entirely my wish
It'll be best to move on
I can't see right from wrong
In the long run you'll be free
You'll stop missing me
But I'll miss you always
'I'm waiting anyway'
If that be the case,
Give up your silly chase.
'I can't. My hands are bound.
Someday you'll come around.
No matter what you do
I'll still be there for you
I can't change now, You've said enough.'
I'm sorry. I know it'll be tough,
Won't you listen to me one last time?
'No. I'm waiting, it'll be fine.
True forever to you'
If that be true, I'll be waiting too.
