I only wanted to have a love that lasted,

then he fell for you.

I only wanted to keep living,

to get far away from the hell he left me in.

I only wanted a friend,

and then I had you.

I only wanted someone to understand,

but was afraid someone would get too close.

I lied, I told you I hated you,

I only wanted you to leave me to my pain.

I only wanted to stay in my beloved darkness,

to let the pain overwhelm me,

but you tried to pull me out.

I only wanted to be free,

to have someone see me for me,

but then the fear came again.

I only wanted to love again,

but got hurt, as usual.

I only wanted to grieve,

to let him go, but you tried to help.

I'm so sorry, I lashed out at you,

I only wanted you not to care,

I knew I'd hurt you one day, I always do.

I had to make a decision,

one that's tearing my heart in two,

I'm sorry, I only wanted to do the right thing.

I lashed out too deep, pushed you away too far,

I'm sorry, I only wanted to be alone.

I'm trying to make amends,

will you let me?

I know I hurt you, but I love you,

the sister I miss so much,

I only want to be friends again.

I'm sorry I'm not a better friend,

I'm sorry I pushed you away so much.

I only wanted a friend,

if she will ever forgive me.
