    How could you tell me that you love me
    When all the time youre telling her that too
    How can you bare to lie and say that your
    feelings for have faded
    When all the time you knew they only grew

    I refuse to continue on, forced to share
    your love,
    Thats not the way I pictued things would be
    Your'e giving me 50 percent of you,
    but youv'e got 100 percent of me

    I want you to desire me and me only,
    and not have to settle for second best
    it seems that my one reason for happiness
    now makes me nothing but depressed

    What did I do to make you not want me anymore
    What's so special about her anyway
    I feel so unwanted now, so useless
    So disheartened, no words could convey

    Sometimes I pretend this is all just a dream
    and its me alone that you need
    But i'm aware of this painful reality
    And as much as I want to;I cannot proceed
