You Should Be MineMature

Give me all the fame.

I can take all the acclaim.

Every gift you can give doesn’t matter

So long as I can’t have you here.

 

All the tears I’ve cried

Would’ve bled an ocean dry.

Your eyes go blind for me,

And I stand here alone.

 

Through all the troubles in my life,

I always had someone to count on.

Now that I have nothing to lean on,

I feel the pain of you moving away.

 

What else is there left to say?

Would any words bid you to stay?

I can cry for eternity,

And do everything that I can to win you back.

But no words can say what this simple phrase can:

You should be mine.

 

No other heart could fit me.

Oh, you were the perfect match for me.

Forgive please, come back please,

I fear I will break down.

 

If you came just to hear me beg,

I will scream anything that keeps you near

And listening to my words.

They’re all meant for you.

 

I’m alone now in these passing nights.

You no longer try to be by my side.

Those years may have been hell to us,

But inside I know it taught me something

Greater than we know.

 

What else is there left to say?

Would any words bid you to stay?

I can cry for eternity,

And do everything that I can to win you back.

But no words can say what this simple phrase can:

You should be mine.

 

Endless tears, streaming down my face.

The familiar feeling of loss inside my body.

I cover the wounds, cease the bleeding.

No matter what I do, it all pours out.

The floodgates lay open.

Only I have the strength to patch them up.

 

But I surrender,

I give up.

I won’t try again

If I can’t be here with you.

With you.

 

Can’t you see,

I’m living every day in the sorrow that you,

Without you,

The sorrow you are bringing,

Without you,

Feeling every heartbreak.

 

Days go by,

Still I cry.

Eyes are dry.

 

Still today,

Now I lay

Alone with a price to pay.

 

If I was meant to be forgotten,

Couldn’t it had been carried out sooner enough?

But instead I remain,

Yet I remain.

 

Every day I try so hard,

But it’s useless to talk to those that wish you can.

But I still persist

As though they will see something new.

 

Falling down for the clouds on high,

Oh, what would stop this endless fall,

A savior to guide my way?

I’ve been abandoned I believe.

 

Every day I try to talk with you.

It’s like a wall blocks my words

And shelters you from me.

I guess this is the reason to be.

 

We may have had rough times together.

But weren’t they times to share anyways?

It was a burden that the two of us took on,

And now that you’re moving on it’s only for me.

 

What else is there left to say?

Would any words bid you to stay?

I can cry for eternity,

And do everything that I can to win you back.

But no words can say what this simple phrase can:

You should be mine.

 

I can scream to the skies,

And fight every mile to bring you back.

Yet no words can say what this simply phrase can:

You should be mine.

 

Without you,

I feel so much pain.

With you

Being gone and away.

But you should be mine.

 

Without you,

Is there a reason to stay?

With you

Forever walking away.

Why can’t you be mine?

 

Should you be mine?

The End
