by Keke Evans

You melted onto me like butter,
Turning my cold heart asunder,
Making my winters into springs,
And saying all the right things.

It's like once you got me,
There was nothing to stop me,
Cuz I wanted this so bad,
That I gave up all I had.

I started living for you,
Started giving for you,
Not thinking of me,
Needing you desperately.

Then one day I realized,
I was becoming someone I despised,
I was holding onto a dream,
Not the real thing it seems.

You took but never gave,
Would spend but never save,
Made our love all but defunct,
Your I love you's just a front.

I would dream of wedding days,
And the fantasies would play,
But one day I woke up,
Found my voice and spoke up.

I learned to love myself,
That I don't need your help,
I'm complete on my own you see,
Cuz all the love is in me.
