I Don't Have..

by NiCoLe ErIn   Dec 5, 2008

I don't have the words
That you want me to say
You can put them in my mouth
But it won't feel the right way

I don't have the answers
To the questions you're asking tonight
You want me to be miserable without you
But I know I'll be alright

I don't have the hope
That you have in your heart
Because of it I'm left with disappointment
And all around me is falling apart

I don't have the time
To wait for you forever
I would do anything for you
Even though we're not together

I don't have the trust
That I used to have in you
You cheated all the time
You can't be true

I don't have the butterflies
You used to give me
I thought I couldn't live without you
But you're not something I need

I don;t have the love
I used to for you anymore
It ended the day
You walked out the door

I don;t have our picture
In my favorite frame
And I ripped off the lettering
That spelled out your name

I don;t have your number
On speed dial in my phone
Telling me to call to hangout
You not answering, me all alone

I don;t have our memories
Constantly on my mind
I;m trying to forget
And new memories to find

I don't have the poems
That you used to write
I stopped reading them
Before bed at night

I don't have the heart
To get played like it's okay
I remember the little games
You'd play everyday

I don't have the strength
To live with a broken heart
The moment you said good-bye
Everything fell apart

I don't have the sparkle
That used to be in my eyes
It faded every time
You told one of many lies

I don't have the CD
You made with our song
I threw it out the window
The first night you were gone

I don't have the feelings
I had when we first met
I regret what I did
And you're something I try to forget

I don't have the will
To give you a third chance
I wish I could
But there's an end to every romance

I don't have the shirt
With your basketball number and name
I can't believe I wore it
To each and every game

I don't have to power
To loose you again
I did it once
But after two, what would I do

And I don't have you
Because we're not meant to be
And I'm not going to pretend
I'm who you want me to be.
