Maybe if I hadn't planted myself so deeply within your roots I could leave without leaving behind parts of me
Maybe if I had chosen myself over you, I wouldn't have forgotten who I am
Maybe if I hadn't fallen for the words you said to my face, rather than the actions that proved otherwise
I wouldn't feel the tears, now collecting on the floor
Maybe if you could switch roles, you wouldn't have done what you did to me
You see, the trust I had wrapped around you, you wrapped around my eyes to blind me from the truth
Maybe I should've denied you rather than accept you with open arms, and still you ran to others
Maybe if I hadn't tried to give life to the love that died with our wilted flowers...
