No Saint

You showed me what its like to feel loved,
when you broke my heart, I came undone,
I'm not a saint that was easy to tell,
but honey you're no angel

I felt so betrayed,
like a game you played,
was I nothing more than another soul for sale,
you gave me up like I was something stale

this pain cripples within,
like a hand on my throat,
you left me to choke,
now here I am, wounds on the skin

I cannot say that it doesn't hurt,
that much is obvious, the red stains on my shirt,
like icarus in the sky,
my whole world was a lie

I try to forget you but its not an easy thing,
I remember how we used to sing,
to the radio in the car,
driving so far

But now I know all things come to an end,
and now I can only hope to mend,
my still-beating heart that aches for you,
but its just another challenge that Ill get through

With every day it gets easier,
I can't forget but I just remember,
happier times and burning embers,
of the flames we once shared
