You've Given Up
I asked God for a miracle
I prayed every day
I said if You love me
You'll do this today.
I didn't expect it,
But He heard, it went through.
What I had wished for was done just for you!
The longing was over
The pain was no more.
I can love you outside now,
Not behind a closed door.
So when I approached you
To tell the good news.
You threw out my heart
And you left it all bruised.
I was no longer your problem,
You left me unsolved.
Yet I swore to you that if you wanted to love,
That my arms were open,
My bruised heart unrepaired,
Would wait just for you, though you left me in despair.
Why I keep going, why I want to fight?
Because I promised that one day I would make things go right.
I told you that I never fully gave up.
There was always a chance that we'd get our good luck.
But no matter how much I gave my all to you.
You never loved me close to how much I love you.
Your focus was her
I was a mere distraction.
You belittle and curse me
You want a reaction.
All of them warned me! They said stay away.
I told them they won't understand your odd ways..
But I was okay with it
I stuck all the way through.
I gave up my everything and all just for you.
So this goes to show
That no matter how strong
Love can always fail, and it can always be wrong.
