Distracting You

Presence of mind and patience
Reconcile me so
I gave up everything to be with you
What did you give up for me?
They care just enough
To make you think they care
Breaking hearts left and right
But I cannot beware
This time

It would make for quite a lie
For me to bear the fruit
Of our despair
What does it feel like
To give up just enough
I’ve always been so hapless
Giving all my love
All or nothing
I’ve heard it said
In a world where
Through the phone
Can be as quick
As rolling over in the bed
But not for some

Blame their distractions
I know that much of this
Is very true
Wouldn’t it be nice
If it was I
Distracting you

Presence of mind
And patience
Reconcile me
So I can let go of the dream
That you cared about
An equal dram
For me
