I Don’t Want to Know

I don’t know if you ever betrayed my trust
I don’t know if I ever want to know There’s comfort in the unknown
There’s solitude in what I want to believe
I don’t want to know

I don’t want to know how I wanted to believe
How I wanted to believe that I wasn’t a fool
I don’t want to be a fool that trusted you
I don’t want to be the fool that lost you
I don’t want to be a fool
I don’t want to remember how much I needed to let you go
I don’t want to know

I saw you after and you looked so happy
That smile you wore was never for me
How could I even ask you to try again?
Ask you to lose that wonderful smile
I was glad you were so happy
I wanted you to be happy
I just wanted you to be happy with me
I wanted to be able to let you go
I didn’t want to know
I don’t want to know

You emptied my heart of desire for anyone but you
You showed me the truth of faith and the beauty in simplicity
I abandoned you for uncertainty and suspicion
I ran away
I didn’t know
I didn’t understand
I let go of your hand
But never let you know I still held it through the night
Until the breaking light of dawn
The light that will always be a reminder of what
I don’t want to know

I still loved you
I will always still love you

I didn’t want you to know
I don’t want you to know
I don’t want to know

We Never Said Goodbye

I’ll keep it in my pocket for the rest of my life
You can’t see it in the daylight
But at night it cuts me like a knife

You did this to me
You helped make me who I am
Yes, you did this to me
Because you never asked me why
And we never said goodbye
No, we never said goodbye

The goal was a simple when darkness touched light
Cut through the fog with a dull knife
Take all the time to do it right

You did this to me
You helped make me who I am
Yes, you did this to me
Because you never asked me why
And we never said goodbye
No, we never said goodbye

Why did you never ask me why?
Because you already knew the answer

You did this to me
You helped make me who I am
Yes, you did this to me
Because you never asked me why
And we never said goodbye
No, we never said goodbye

Goodbye

Affinity

Energy traveling through the vast expanse
Knowing what lay hidden
What needs to stay hidden
Stringed along in theory
Loss of trust mentality
Desire becomes the fantasy
For losing all integrity
All for nothing if nothing more
Than the affinity.

There was no other way
Or none to be known of that day
Point of contact termination
No means for explanation
Rules laid out in damnation
Loss of salvation
Emotional degradation
Affinity negation
No more games to play
Nothing more to say

Color Me Unimpressed

I thought you were out of my league
I never expected to be stabbed in the back
I didn’t know how painful the twist of a cheating knife could be.

Viewed from the distance so many times
I swore that would never be me
I would never be so naive
But you stole my heart without my paying heed
And ripped out my soul
Ripped it out and laid it to waste
The betrayal and deceit left me cold
Wondering if I could ever open the gates again

I thought you were out of my league
Though memories may drift my heart will never go back
To the twist of a knife and.your night of ecstasy

Maybe I see it things as too black and white
Maybe I should have expected nothing less
I will forever keep a safe distance and do what is right
Wanting but not wanting
Color me unimpressed

Questions 4 and 6

Were you ready to leave or did I throw us away?
If I’d asked you about it would I have believed you anyway?
Questions I ponder every day

Does that little diamond still sparkle in your eyes?
If I asked you today, would you tell the truth or feed me lies?
Questions I try to analyze.

Do you know what you meant to me?
Do you realize what you helped me see?
Is what you meant to me ever what I meant to you?
Did I throw away a heart that was true?

Did you know I gave up all of my soul and my heart?
Did you know it’s what I felt inside right from the very start?
Questions that tear my soul apart.

When You Still Cared

Deep in the chasms of my soul a memory burns as bright as a gaslight
A memory of what guides me through the still of the darkest night
Though you did me wrong
Wherever my heart may wander
I will think of what we once had and do what I know is right

In memory of what we once shared
Back when you still cared

You were beyond my expectations of what I deserved in my life
Then you cut out my heart with deception of a red-hot knife
Because you did me wrong
I know I need to do better
I will remember what we once had
It will forever guide my life

A memory of what we once shared
Back when you still cared

Your Pretty Face (for the rest of my life)

I beat myself up for over a year
Even though you’d no longer be here
I knew it was just a matter of time
I could feel it all start to unwind
Before you broke me apart inside
So I broke us first and almost died

For the rest of my life
I will always love you
For the rest of my life
I will always hate you
For the rest of my life
I will never forgive you
For the rest of my life
I will forever want you
For the rest of my life

Wondering if what I did was right
A spot on the wall opened my sight
Now I wonder how could I not see
You never planned to stay with me
You had a lover already in my place
Soon you’d be gone without a trace

How many hearts did your pretty face
Lay in the waste?
How many hearts did your pretty face
Bend and break?

I knew it was just a matter of time
I could feel it all start to unwind
Before you broke me apart inside
So I broke us first and almost died
You had a lover already in my place
Soon you’d be gone without a trace

For the rest of my life
I will never forgive you
For the rest of my life
I will forever want you
For the rest of my life
