Because I Love You

You wanted to take my on adventures 

Why?

"Because I love you" 

You wanted to make my life exciting 

Why?

"Because I love you"

You said I needed to relax and I could trust you

Why?

"Because I love you"

 

You handed me a shot 

and by three, I couldn't walk 

You said I didn't know what drunk was

but by then I couldn't talk 

He took my virginity 

but I barely remember the night 

"Because I love you"

yeah right.

You were never sober 

and you made sure I was never clean

but you got rather handsy when you were drunk 

you made yourself quite mean 

Just like how you are what you eat, 

you're just like vodka, you burn 

Yet I came back to you three times

I guess I just never learn. 

 

I left you and filled the void with book 

Why?

Because I love me

I let myself trust another boy who treats me right

Why? 

Because I love me

I allowed him in and he's let my heart be happy

Why? 

Because I love me

And I'll never allow myself back into your arms

Why?

Because because you never loved me 

and because I'll never love you
