You’ll mark the periods of your life as
Before Me and After Me,
As if for some brief moment of time,
Something amazing happened.
Because something amazing did.
I promise you, I felt alive.
I meant it all when I told you I loved you.
I meant it when I said I wanted to stay.
I meant it when I said I couldn’t.
I told you I was broken.
During that brief moment of time
I was your girl,
At least I thought I was;
But all you had was a girl who wanted to let you in,
A girl who wanted to let you love her,
