If I Didn't Want This

Locked away in the same room
I repeat myself and still I don’t feel the same
I don’t need the lies, so I’ll want the truth
it will all end in disdain anyway...

I can’t sleep without being reminded
I am forever subdued by the trivial things
Here in the West, no one ever cares
so why should I?

If I didn’t want this
I wouldn’t have fallen for you
in the first place
If I didn’t want this
I wouldn’t have asked you
let’s runaway
and disappear without a trace

I know I am setting myself up for a fall
but will you be there to catch me?
There’s nothing romantic around here
will you become bored and find someone else?

I am not the type to cry or break down
I keep it all inside and let it poison me
Is there a light at the end of this tunnel?
We’ll see, honey, we’ll see

If I didn’t want this
I wouldn’t have fallen for you
in the first place
If I didn’t want this
I wouldn’t have asked you
let’s runaway
and disappear without a trace

The End
