Do we only live once? (incomplete)

Do we only live once?
.
.

You finally find that one person
And they mean everything to you
Feelings so natural its like y'all have been rehearsing
And they feel the same way too.
.
.

Every kiss sends electricity down your body.
And you can't help but smile
Everyone's a Honda but that special person is an Audi
You can't wait to walk down that aisle
.
.

Months maybe even years pass bye and life is perfect.
Every morning you receive that "good morning mi amor " text.
I mean young love is amazing, what do you expect.
Y'all have been through every happy moment together, whats next?
.
.

Pain.
They cheat on you and you're crushed,
Heart's left on the floor and your head is searing with pain.
How could you do this to me, I thought you loved me so much.
I guess to you all this was just a game.
.
.

The next phase of your life is complete hell
Crying every night, because you can't get that person out your fucking head
You're not the same, you know it and everyone can tell.
And every morning you wish you could be dead.
.
.

Break ups are not easy especially if it was "true love"
You're still crying, you're still in pain.
Months later they see you and give you a hug...
Then you run back to them listening to your heart and ignoring your brain.
.
.

You know that running back was the worst choice
But you don't know what its like to love someone else.
You kiss them but there's no electricity.. its just moist.
They break up with you again.. your heart just melts.
.
.

You fucked your self over again.
You knew it was gonna be the same outcome
They are the same, no different from now and then.
Heart still crushed , like it was under 10 tons.

.
.
Left alone again for weeks
But then your start to realize
Your heart isnt shattered, its just a leak.
And you have no time for these fake guys

.
.
The only person that can patch you up is yourself
And once you do that, then you can move on
Because being depressed just is not good for your health.
Just realize that that person is dead and gone.
.
.

People say life moves on and its true
That person was your life, and then they moved on.
And the phrase " you only live once" is a lie, I'll tell you what you do.
