She asked me if I was in love with you,
I should have lied, but I didn’t say no –
I had no more words, just shook my head,
Spun on my heel and turned to leave
She watched me – and started to cry,
And I – just left, did nothing, said nothing.
Nothing begins and ends with nothing,
And when there was no me and you
There was never any reason to cry –
If only I had been smart and said no
To your extended offer, I wouldn’t have to leave,
If only I had ignored my heart, followed my head –
But my eyes were fastened to the back of your head,
And it was if there was nobody, nothing
In this world that could make me leave
I was more than a bit obsessed with you
And – I wish you would have said no
We both said yes, and she started to cry
And I’m not sure now for whom to cry,
I’m sipping something, fog in my head
I asked for forgiveness, she shook her head no
Can’t blame her, I treated her like nothing
I saw through her, saw only you
And now I’m the one who has to leave.
Can’t think straight, asked work for leave
“Personal reasons” I said, pretended to cry
It sounds pathetic I’m sure to you,
Who am I? I’m stuck in my head,
I, quite honestly, feel like such a nothing
I have no self-control, can’t tell myself no
Now I’ve come to you, you also said no
Don’t blame you, I’ll pack up and leave
Leaving behind my traces of nothing,
Each time I laugh, each time I cry
Silently hoping you’ll follow where I head,
Silently still wishing I could be with you.
Now I have nothing, you both said no.
I still love you – don’t make me leave,
You made me cry when you shook your head.
