Tell Me

Tell me, how to love someone
Who doesn't love me back

Tell me, how to respect someone
Who doesn't deserve my respect

Tell me, how to speak nicely to someone
Who spoke down to me with harsh words

Tell me, how to get close to someone
Who caused me endless pain

Tell me, how to forgive someone
Who hurt me so severely

Tell me, how to open my heart to someone
Who broke it in pieces too many times
