I gave myself completely to you,
So naturally, what did you do?
You threw it away without a glance,
Ran off as soon as you got the chance.
So I pick it up and dust it off,
I’ll keep it safe, hold it aloft.
I won’t let anyone else get close
I don’t need a second dose.
Love can wait a while I guess,
For me I know that’s probably best.
Until a good man comes along,
Who knows my heart like his favorite song.
He will love me, treat me well,
He won’t put me through that hell
Of loving and not being loved in return,
He will heal the scar left by that old burn.
