Staring at the words you once wrote,

I smile then shed a tear.

I feel I'm living my worst fear,

But I surrender to the truth that you're the only one

That can help me cope.

A case of woulda-coulda-shoulda turned into regret,

And my mind the voices haunt,

Telling me they thought we would end up together;

It's a painful taunt.

They saw something between us and this makes me upset,

Because they saw it long before I did,

And because nothing ever happened.

I wonder why?

Was it we were both too shy,

Or did you just want me to cry?

If that was the case then you did right.
