He sat me down and said don’t cry
But the time has come to say goodbye
I gave it my all but as time passed by
I realised it wasn’t love, it was just a lie.
“Please” I said, first let me reply
I know it’s been difficult but we have to try
You know I love you, that you can’t deny
Your the one for me, my perfect guy.
But he didn’t stop, he didn’t want to retry
I tried to be strong but a tear escaped my eye
I couldn’t make sense of it, I looked to the sky
Please give me strength, help me understand why.
