A Few Words Short


Adryanna, I'm sorry
Love letter, I'm sorry
Adryanna, now is the time I wish to bother you
spill the words in my heart's content
Let me start by saying
I don't regret what we had
I don't take back the romantic words I said to you
they were for you and only you
a gift from me to you
I don't take back anything
I just hate how everything unfurled
I just hate how it all fell apart
unraveling, unraveling
like the yarn you're a master with
it just kept unraveling
You blame yourself and I blame me
I put all of it on me
It's me to say I can handle anything
It's my pride to say I can handle everything
to have patience and tolerate
the little things which irritate me
and be happy for you
yet I guess it was the doubts
yet I guess I couldn't handle being second guessed
cause I felt I did everything I could
to prove I wouldn't dare be the one to hurt you
to prove I wouldn't dare break your heart
to prove I wouldn't dare burn your world down
Did I break any of those promises I made
If I did, I apologize now forever and foremost
It's your forte to apologize
an inside joke between you and I
for I just need a little laugh
I've been miserable since that Wednesday past
I've been miserable since the last 'fight' we had
To your unanswered question
I avoided the subject
because I thought you already knew the answer
for I had said so many times
all I wanted was you
but I was a few words short
but I hadn't completely wrote my script
I was stuck on line one and couldn't finish
Are you alright
I guess my priorities are a bit off
I should have asked that
first and foremost
still I just want to know if you're alright
Me, I can't hardly sleep
Sleep keeps betraying me
scaring me out of slumber with wicked nightmares
startling me with twisted sounds
prohibiting me with a sense of full slumber
These past few days I found myself thinking
maybe it would've been better
if I had said nothing
those few months back
for I might still have my very best friend
and we would not be feeling this
for me and my very best friend
would not be feeling this
Do you feel the same
The relationship has altered
and I put the blame on me
I'm not asking for a second chance
I'm just apologizing
I'm just hoping you're alright
I'm just saying what's on my heart
I'm just speaking too much
since you already know the truth
I can't lose you...
I can't lose you...
