You Deserved Better

Did you love me like you loved her and I just missed it?

Was that energy there - did I kiss it?

Was it hanging from my lips, tingling in fingertips
all those texts and those talks - what tipped it?

...

Goodbye was among the hardest things to do

but when we said it, I didn't think I was really losing you

...

yet here I am.

...

Alone and pondering the signs that I missed

or dismissed?

the things I gave weight that were weightless.

the things I overlooked - I can't take this.

...

See I don't want you back and I don't want to be her
but I do wish we could return to what we were
for just a little bit
so I could see fit
with 20/20 hindsight: refit
my actions
so they'd suit you better.

You deserved better.

I just didn't know how to be better at the time.

So if I could go back, I'd be me in my prime
and you wouldn't have had to hurt.

You deserved better.

I just didn't know how to be better at the time.
