You notice, you so focused on the things they don’t do or don’t do for you You said they have not grown, not like you But forgetting that you still got growing to do too And simple fact, is you suppose have a future together so you work with that I said you wasn’t focused, but now look at you so focused Somebody else seeing progress, ‘cause they had patience And I was tired of waiting, but you weren’t tired of waiting ‘Cause you put with me I should of put with you too Now I'm sitting here saying how much care for Sitting here sipping on something saying I’m missing you And all the while you was you waiting full of frustration Holding you at arms length for ages I’m kind ashamed to say it, I gotta live with as payment I never called And you were my only Wounds are raw Now I’m lonely I gave up sure for unsure I was a fool for loosing you slowly Letting you walk away from me I gave up sure for unsure Something had to give to you had to live So you letting go was really the best thing You did it for yourself I can see that yes Thinking bout my own selfishness less Would have been better for us, I brought nothing but fuss We debated about were we taking this life I lied to you now I cry for you 'Cause my pride told me that I wanted more than you But wanty wanty can’t get and get and getty getty nah want it Foundation wasn’t strong that’s I fell of it The promise I made to you wasn’t honest Too smart for myself so I lost the profits of you Things that I do make me question my sanity Chasing the one that will never be right for me I’m kinda of ashamed to say it I gotta live with that as pain meant I never called And you were my only Wounds are raw Now I’m lonely I gave up sure for unsure I was a fool for loosing you slowly Letting you walk away from me I gave up sure for unsure My ego’s amazing Always gets in situations Like this cause I am fly So I just let you walk by Wasn’t keen on staying Now I ended with Nathan And Nathan gives nothing I get nothing from Nathan
