los banos, ca,
they ask me how can i still love you,
after everything youve done,
but theyve never learned the meaning,
of unconditional love.
they think i dont remember,
every tear ive ever cried,
all the times i looked away,
from the apologies in your eyes.
they think ive made myself forget,
all the pain thats in my heart,
but i try not to hold the past agianst you,
even if it tears me apart.
they say i dont deserve,
all the pain youve put me through,
but who are they to say,
they havent lived all the goodtimes to.
they tell me trust is everything,
and without it i have nothing,
but im willing to try an rebuild it,
because i know you love me.
you tell me that im foolish,
for thinking the way i do,
you tell me im the only one,
and god i want to believe you.
you tell me not to worry,
about ever having to let go,
i just want the promise,
if i do, ill be the first to know.
i tell you that i love you,
despite everything that used to be,
they dont hear the softness in your voice,
when you say you love me.
i ask you so many questions,
but hide the answers from heart,
because if your mind is elsewhere,
my world will fall apart.
they dont know you like i do,
they dont feel you like i can,
they dont know how hard its been,
and theyll never understand.
you dont know me like i do,
you dont understand the way i feel,
that everything in my heart,
has been broken, but my love is real.
they dont have to love you,
or cry the way i do,
you dont have to love me,
the unconditional way that i love you.
i dont have to listen,
to all the things they say,
i dont have to let our past,
stand in our futures way.
we dont have to be perfect,
or live a life without pain,
i just dont ever want,
to have to die inside agian.
