You told me you couldn't be with me in my current state
You told me you needed someone with a clean slate
The way you spoke of me, made me feel like I was a house whose foundation was a bad state
beyond repair
bent out of shape

I don't know if I love you, or if I love the thought of you
I don't know if I miss you, or if I miss the thought of you

and do you know that it has taken me 2 years to forget about 10 days
and do you remember that you told me the door would always be open that you'd always take me back and yet when you came back you didn't want to come back, you never called back
Did you think I wouldn't keep track of that?
So when I got over and I left that thought behind
Now you want to call back?
I ain't got nothing on that...

You thought I'd just sit here and pretend
as if the days would go by and I would not mend
That you had me squished under your thumb
That I would never raise my voice against you
As if I had no choice against you?
That I would just succumb?
Well boy, you're pretty dumb

Now you think you have the audacity
To come and Proclaim your voracity for me
Think your gonna trample all over my tenacity
Pretend like I'm sugar and water and dissolve right into you
Maybe yesterday, maybe in 2013 but not today

Because boy I was born at night but I wasn't born last night
And you honestly think I was up thinking of you last night?
'cause even if I had a f* to give, you were right, I don't give a f*, not even in the slight

    "......It has taken me two years to forget about ten days" - what an excellent line. So true. How little time is needed to affect years of your life.
    A great write and all the best,
