I mistake attention for love.
Look at me and I’ll think you care.

I expect things,
And hurt when I’m failed.

But it’s getting enough.
It’s getting enough to teach me,
That you are not different.
You will fall,
Just like I do,
And you will hurt me,
So I should expect it.

This earth is filled with people,
And we don’t have room
In our hearts
For all of them.

I understand.
You can’t love me
The way I’d like.

I understand.
I’ll try not to cry
Tonight.
