She said she loves me
But her actions love me not
How do you string along someone who’s given you everything they’ve got?
Through it all, I was always there
Cancer scare, welfare, I was there
Now suddenly I’m an annoyance
I’ve been calling, but my text and calls you’ve been ignoring
After everything this is what it’s become
Out of patience, I’m done
Tryna act like you’re busy
Like I ain’t important, huh?
When your family was against you, on your side, who was the only one?
All my sacrifices amount to nought?
Guess you don’t know what you’ve got
‘Till it’s f*ckboy o’clock
Now I don’t deserve respect? I think not
Six months since I last saw you
Only messaging when you need something, that’s all you
Been loyal for three years but all I got to prove for it are these tears
How do men cry?
In dark rooms where they can’t see their eyes
Put on a brave face, but that’s just a disguise
Laughing through the pain but few realize
Was ready to make a down-payment
Dowry and all that now my heart’s smashed into the pavement
Made your struggles mine but where mine ever yours in that arrangement?
Corner to corner, in my room I’m pacing
Trying to cover up has be feeling like Jason
Everyone knows a woman scorned but when it’s a man would you have known?
I’ve got my receipts but you can keep it all
Gave you everything but that made me hollow, what’s the point of it all?
You fall in love but what happens when something breaks the fall?
Asking myself, now what?
Do I start again? Can I recover from the pain?
I don’t show it ‘coz I’m vain
The colours fade and I’m left plain
What’s next then?
