Christian Rivera (November 19th 1992 / Mcallen, Texas)
Why am I Thinking of You?
Why do I find myself thinking of you?
When all I want to do is forget what we've been through
The pain you gave me
Saying it would save me
Trying to erase me from memory
But how could I forget my first serious love?
Only just a year ago you were all I'd ever think of
Then you threw it in my face
This love now turned to hate
And all I really want is for you to go away
You promised me that we would be together forever
Oh and I should have known better
Promises from you don't mean anything
But a promise is a promise to me
Although I scratched off all the promises I said I'd keep
So why am I still here thinking of the pain you caused me?
I thought that it was over and I was free
Instead I'm here listening to a sad little song
Trying very hard not to sing along
Because If I do, I know I'd only fall
