Deserve Me

And it happens again…

 

A cross to my shoulder, a jab to my chest

A kick to my ego, a lack of defense

As though in slow motion, you wind up again

When did this become so normal, and do I deserve this?

 

When I met you in high school, I felt overwhelmed

at getting attention for the first time. It sounds

like a pitiful cliché, a lame kiss-and-tell

but the story takes twists and I can tell it myself

I always adored you, the way you'd stand up

for yourself and for me, but I couldn't handle

the tempers and tantrums you'd throw at random

told myself it was my fault, 'cause I couldn't man up

 

and that was the last time, I said, and I said

and it happens again

 

A cross to my shoulder, a jab to my chest

A kick to my ego, a lack of defense

As though in slow motion, you wind up again

When did this become so normal, and do I deserve this?

 

We laid out in your backyard naming every star we saw

back when both your hands were gentle, and your speaking voice was soft

you joked that Romans made up constellations on the spot

and I believe that even Grecians beat me at connecting dots

cause for every side you showed me, I'd soften, or I'd try

to justify with reasons pleading for you in my mind

I only see you sweetly when I see the stars at night

leave it to the only person that could ruin half the sky

 

I just want to tell her I miss my best friend

And it happens again…

 

A cross to my shoulder, a jab to my chest

A kick to my ego, a lack of defense

As though in slow motion, you wind up again

When did this become so normal…?

 

A cross to my shoulder, a jab to my chest

A kick to my ego, a lack of defense

As though in slow motion, you wind up again

What do I deserve…?

 

I'm finally ready to admit this wasn't my fault

to learn that love does not exist when I feel this small

and I can count on one hand the times you made me feel worthy

I can count on one finger to say You Don't Deserve Me

No you don’t deserve me

No you don’t deserve…

I just want to tell her I miss my best friend
