I never deserved you, My best friend, So kind, So sweet, So caring, To everybody, When I could only be around you
You tried to see the best in everybody, No matter what they'd done, Doing your best, Until you snapped, When I only ever saw the worst
You did your best to help people, With patience, And a smile, When I, Could barely help myself
You were so innocent, So naïve, Because you couldn't see It, When my own world view had shattered, Too young with no time for innocence, then
I know I didn't deserve you, And we were so different as it was, Yet it worked, I thought, And, maybe, I thought, 'Forever, is how long I could keep you'
And maybe I was a tiny bit in love with you, The friend I never deserved, In love with your optimism and kindness, But I guess I'll never know
I realised all too soon, I held you back from so much, Despite how much I tried, And it wasn't fair for you, Dragging you down beside me
And since I let you go, I know you're doing well now, I know it when I see you, Passing without a glance
It helps my fear of being alone, Just slightly, Seeing how you've conquered it
So I know I didn't deserve you, And maybe I was a little bit in love, But when your optimism and kindness, Clearly still shows-
Mine is barely grown,
And I'm really glad you're happy now, I think, That soon, I'll be happy too.
