Not Worth It

This song is kinda meaningful to me, but I don't think I'll ever make the music for it (due to lack of ability) so thought I'd share it here so it can have some sort of publication

You always were the angel, that no-one else liked,
You, bathed in innocence, oh you sure knew how to fight,
You always were the strongest, person that I knew,
But apparently that wasn't, good enough for you,
So what could I do?

You always hated yourself 'cause you couldn't see the light,
That would shine out of your face every time that you would fight,
I tried to keep you smiling because sometimes life is rough,
But it turned out that for you, I wasn't good enough.

So what could I do?

So I walked away from you...
'cause there was nothing I could do...

So we went our separate ways and I trudged on with my life,
Things didn't get much better but I learnt just how to fight,
Like a new day's dawn your light shone true and came out from your shell,
I can only wish that one-of-those days you hoped that I was well,
As I made my way through hell...

One half of me was happy, you were finally standing tall,
But another part hated you for ignoring me before,
Wasn't your life just blossoming... as you left me far behind,
Didn't matter that I'd told you you were worth it all the time...

So what could I do?

So I walked away from you...
'cause there was nothing I could do...
So I walked away from you...
'cause there was nothing I could do...

Time passed time and soon I forgot just how to be sad,
Out of nowhere you approached me and told me life was bad,
Bad memories consumed me, but I made you smile that night,
I just wanted to remember how amazing was the light,
That you'd burn when you would fight...

How can you say that you hate yourself when you're superior to me?
Tell me all about your problems and yet you still can't see,
The only problem I've ever had was simply loving you,
And now you want to kill yourself and I don't know what to do?
I don't know what to do...

I can't walk away from you,
So just use me till I'm through,
And you'll always be on my mind,
Till you choose to leave me behind...
Leave me behind...

More friends, more looks, more reasons that you shouldn't cry to me,
And you still lean on my shoulder... as I try to make you see,
But right now I'm all you have and you treat me like a gem,
I'm just waiting till you walk away... back to all of them,

I want to disappear.

I can't walk away from you,
So just use me till I'm through,
And you'll always be on my mind,
Till you choose to leave me behind...
Leave me behind...

Oh... could it be true?
That my heart can break too...
