Lying to yourself

And so I shall let myself remain
sleepless for a few nights
And hungry for a while
Debating if this was right
While hiding behind a smile

I’ll miss you for a minute
And tell myself that I don’t
It’s the fact that you were in it
That pushes me to cry, but I won’t

I’ll crave your voice and touch
I’ll wear your T-shirt to bed
Blame myself for asking for too much
Replaying those scenes in my head

When I stood in front of you
Crumpled from what I had to say
I lied my soul right through
Saying I’d rather it be this way

Because in the end I know
Nothing was built to last
I need you here right now though
But you got over me so fast
