Back To Number One

I ran but I couldn’t keep up

I wasn’t sure honey, I wasn’t

It should be perfect

It should

So I’ll hold myself

Wrap these arms loosely around myself

And hug myself Saying it will be fine

I should have walked away

I should have

But I let you in

Now I’m hurting again

Back to number one

Back to the place Where I cry myself to sleep

Back to the dark where it is just me against the world

You were my secret

The one behind my smile

But you had to walk away

To prove a point

This bittersweet smile

Do not define me

It only means I am strong enough

To remain unbroken.
