Treasure Island

Marcquiese Burrell

(2/21/1987 / Baltimore, MD)

A little too late


I've given you my heart
and you'd promised to never break it
I've put my trust into you
thinking your love was true
and you've broken my faith
when my love was sincere
All whats left is the hurt from the heartache
Because I long to touch you, hold you, kiss and love you
Not thinking I've got the strength to pull through
And then you came to the realization
that none other can ever satisfy your wants, your needs, not the way that i do
You now want my love,
I never wanted to ever lose you in the first place
Accepting you back for a second time
Is a risk i'm not willing to take
because, I'm the best thing you'll never have again
when you've hurt me with your goodbyes
It took me a good while to regroup
And here I rise anewed
So no, I won't be the fool
and no, i won't play these games
sorry but you came around a little too late
I shook you off along with the dead weight

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
