When I think about it now

When the pain is but a distant memory

Loving you was not just love


Loving you

Was about the moments

Bits and pieces of the loveliest memories sewn together

To create

A quilt of time we spent together

The moments of joy, happiness, hope and anger

That brought us so close together

And eventually tore us apart


Loving you 

Was about the beautiful delusions

The expectations that fell short of reality every time

When I was so deeply in love 

That I let it slide

But we broke because the disappointment

Overwhelmed me inside


Loving you

Was losing myself

Becoming so blinded

That in the end

I lost you as well
