Amber Leigh


Love if fake,
Love is real,
But when do we know,
It's what we feel?

You say you're whipped,
Like the cream,
You say you never loved me,
It's all a lie…

You know you felt it,
As much as I did,
Now look at us,
Acting like kids,

I remember when,
You wanted me to yourself,
But I wanted friends,
But ended up saying "farewell"
To make you feel wanted, needed,
Like you were the only one,
In my life that mattered,
When I really needed everyone,

Coexisting together,
Is harder than it looks,
When we're contrasted so strongly,
So different, we cannot,

Be together and happy,
I'll be the death of you,
Move on your own way,
Let your happiness brew,

With someone else,
That isn't me,
Make you live like a king,
Not miserably,

You loved me so much,
More from the start,
Because of my mistakes,
We're falling apart,

You need a baby,
I need a man,
To fill the holes,
That no one can,

You say you want to miss me,
I don't wanna miss you at all,
That means we're apart,
Wasting time as I ball,

Out my eyes,
And into my clothes,
He doesn't miss me,
He never shows,

Like he used to before,
When we first met,
As much as possible,
As much he could get,

Where has the love gone?
Has it faded away?
If I hadn't messed up,
Would it be here today?

He chased me first,
And I didn't care,
I lost him and missed him,
He was aware,

I want the old him back,
The one that cared about me,
The one that nobody else,
The one that made me happy,

Are we together too long?
Or not long enough,
I'm too tired to think,
About what is what,

Should we try to make it work?
And be together forever?
Or call it quits,
And say goodbye to eachother?

What if we meet someone else?
What if only one of us does?
If you were it,
I wouldn't be able to give up,

You were mine first,
You're still with me today,
Then why do I worry so much
If supposedly you're staying,

We've planned the future,
Hopefully it'll all go well,
Careers and kids,
A family we shall,

Teach them together,
From right and wrong,
And when they become weak,
We will be strong,

I love you a lot,
But is the love shared?
Is either stronger,
Or is one impaired?

Whatever the matter,
I want you to be mine,
Forever like the first,
Will know in time…
