Give me one good reason

Give me one good reason

Why I shouldn’t have

Give up on you?

Turned my back, walked away

Started over anew?

Give me one good reason

Why I should still give my time

To listen as you share

Your woes and dreams

Even though you won’t hear

One word that I speak?

Give me one good reason

Why I should’ve spent my time

Living in your shadow

Being unnoticed and

Blocked by your shade

Because you couldn’t let me shine?

Give me one good reason

Why I should’ve stayed

When everything around

Told me to leave

Your silence may have quietly

Wanted me to remain

But it’s in your words and actions

That I truly believe?

Give me one good reason

Why I should’ve believed in you

While you still have so little

Faith in yourself?

You’re driven by a fury

There’s no room for anything else

Give me one good reason

Why I should’ve loved you

Laid myself out, bare on a plate?

You had your turn, you picked over me

Then pushed me to one side

You had my love once

And now it’s just too late
