You Sang To Me

The songs still remind me of you.
When I listen to them, I think of you.
And when I sing along, I remember you singing them to me.
They used to be our lullaby. They were our songs. Do you remember?

Your arms were my castle. You sang to me.. making me feel safe. I could lie with you forever.. I wanted to. But you?

You sang promises to me. Fake ones.. Behind your comforting voice were nothing but lies. You disguised yourself in front of me, and I drifted away with the songs you filled me up with.
I was a fool. I believed you.
I was a fool. I gave in to you.
And I was a fool because I closed myself within your songs. You built fake walls for me, and I engulfed myself within them.

You broke them when the time came. You left, leaving me to pick up the broken pieces. And as I try to re build the castle, I listen to the songs you used to sing to me. And you are all I think about.
I was a fool to love you. I'm still a fool because I still love you, even though you sang nothing but fake promises to me.

I still hold on to them. They are still my lullaby, while you're singing them to someone else now..

"I'm Yours"- The Script.
The first song you sang to me. You were never mine. That was your first lie.

  2. This itself is a song with a broken tone, pain and emptiness.
    Such pain really stays and everytime the song comes up memories hit our head.

    BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN.

  3. Pain seeps from your words...
    Guess in every relationship there are songs that the two share... as true or a lie as it may be.
