Because I loved you, I felt worthless
Because I loved you, I saw myself surrounded by darkness when you were supposed to be my light
Because I loved you, I saw blood on my hands instead of your fingers between mine
Because I loved you, I thought I wasn’t good enough and because I loved you I didn’t love myself
Everything was your fault but,
Because I loved you, I apologized
But according to you that love just wasn’t good enough.
You blamed me for your nights with her but, because I loved you I forgave you
You decided you had had enough
It had to of been terrible being stuck with someone like me
You pushed me against the wall and told me it was all my fault
You yelled and shattered glasses but because I loved you, I picked up the pieces
You treated me like dirt so there I laid on the floor like I deserved
Left in a daze with only the ringing in my ear from your screams to comfort me
Because I loved you, being this low felt like home to me
What I didn’t know then was that ending was my beginning
You see, I didn’t know that it was you and not me.
I couldn’t see that the man I thought was my lighthouse, was my only anchor.
You let me believe I was nothing without you
That I would never find another man like you
And I’m thankful that I didn’t
I moved on and found a new love
When you found love for her I found love in me
So thank you for the years of abuse
Thank you for making me feel used
And finally, because I love me, I don't miss you.
