I think we were growing apart anyway
Your smile strained every time we were together
My beliefs and feelings became flaws in your eyes
And I couldn't allow my entire being become a flaw
I tried to hold on as long as I could
But your grip was too loose and I was losing my hand
And when I finally let you go, you blamed me
And I tried to ignore it, but I still carry it with me.
It's taken me a year to be okay without you
And I'm still not there
But I still want to thank you
For leaving me with a freedom
To become who I needed to be.
