“Like That”

Telling me that you want me

Swearing I make you better now

A future of love and loyalty

You said you’d show me how

Building me up to this climax

Then telling me they weren’t facts

Now you pulled back and want to be friends again

I really don’t need a friend like that

Making me feel like I was all worth it

Like I’m every single thing that you need

You promised you would work through everything

The good, the bad, even the unsettling

Once you needed me to be there

Be supportive and have your back

Suddenly there’s nothing but excuses

I feel pretty useless

I really don’t need a friend like that

I’m supposed to be calm about it

I can’t be upset just because you don’t want it

Be empathetic to your feelings only

It’s “fuck my feelings” to really be blunt

I have to move forward like it’s nothing

Like imagining you with another isn’t bad

When I was always willing to be there

For you I genuinely cared

I guess you never knew you had a friend like that

My heart and my mind has moved past it

At this point nobody else will do

Call me crazy, but you’re the one who brought me here

My mind will always be set on you

They say time heals all that’s considered sad

If you’re truly happy, I’d never deny you that

But don’t tell me to feel less

Don’t try and lead me to square one and back

You’re not being kind

I feel you’ve lost your mind

You know I cannot be your friend like that
