    this pain u caused
    is such a lonely distraction
    thought i'd fall asleep
    and out of love
    but neither one seems to happen

    i've taken inventory of my emotions
    and cleared room for other things
    now my chest
    has nothing left
    that broken heart wasn't worth salvaging

    we were 4 years deep
    into forever
    with the potential of making it five
    but with 1 call
    you threw away it all
    i guess my cell phone lied

    i saved your name as "can't do wrong"
    your number was 1-4-3
    you gave me chills
    and puppy love thrills
    mixed with grown folks tendencies

    i gave you effort
    and genuine progress
    even covered you in my prayers
    when you were faithless

    i sold you dreams
    with real estate
    opened up my life
    and said
    make yourself at home

    my heart was a size 10 1/2
    a tailor made fit for you
    and no matter how big
    the next man swears his pocket is
    he'll never be able to fit
    in my shoes
