Et Tu Brute

I thought you were my friend but I guess I was wrong
I gave you my trust but with it you tore me apart
You’ve just left me waiting all night long
Not a stab in the back but a stab in the heart

Most would hold a grudge but it seems that I can’t
How could you betray me in my time of need
I guess that our friendship was just a scant
I think that u were just overtaken by greed

How could you spill my secret to that one person
I never believed you could be this shallow
I try to mend the situation but it just seems to worsen
For me its too much to grasp , all I do is grieve

When I first heard what you did, it lingered my skin
I felt as if I was shot by a poisonous arrow
Your actions caused my face to lose its grin
I went all numb, couldn’t breath, my lung passage narrow

For all thats good in this forsaken universe
I thought that you were the one, my shiny pearl
The gold and diamond inside my purse
The one who would be there when I was ready to hurl

After all that we’ve been through
Can you blame me for thinking
That you wouldn’t betray, that you had a clue
Now my chest is numb, and my heart is sinking

When I told you, I new you’d go and tell
It ran through my head, but I didn’t wanna believe
All these past few day have been burning hell
Instead of guarding my secret, all you did was deceive

You can write the future, but you can’t rewrite the past
I know that I was second and he was first
How can you put my feelings last
Now I feel as though I’m ready to burst

Yet I still talk to you and treat you as my friend
Its so strange I myself don’t understand
I can’t bring myself to say those words, say it’s the end
It fills me with a sadness I can hardly withstand

You can say sorry as much as you want
But sorry can’t make the pain depart
I’m afraid it’ll always come back and haunt
I wish I could go back to yesterday, go back to the start
