One Who Understands
Cedar Rapids, Iowa
(One of my best friends has put me behind his girlfriend, and doesn't realize that he is putting me through this. Now that I have a girlfriend, I'd just like to say....I'd never to that to him)
Iíd never do that to him.
I feel so alone, I feel like Iím going to burst.
I feel like Iím always left out, I feel like Iím always the worst.
Why must I fail every time, why must I be in the cold.
Why must I be the only one, who has no hand to hold.
I knew it was going to happen, sooner or later it would be.
All my friends would have a girl, every last oneÖbut me.
The friend I depended on, is no longer there.
He no longer calls me, he no longer cares.
We always went out, every lonely weekend night.
We always suck together, and talked when things werenít right.
But now he has her, and doesnít need me.
He just shut the door, closed his eyes and canít see.
He canít see my pain, he canít see my tears.
All the time we spent together, over the years.
Means nothing to him now, now that heís with her.
I wish he could only understand, the pain I endure.
But I am happy for him, because he is no longer sad.
Just like I am now, even though Iím still glad.
I just canít understand why, he ignores me like he does.
I guess he likes her more, or maybe itís just because.
Maybe Iím just jealous, maybe itís a sin.
All I really know is, Iíd never do that to him.
