I Turns Out I Was WrongMature

 

 

Last night we had a fight

Over something silly and something more

About you controlling me

And me not listening to you

And I said I never really loved you anyhow

 

It turns out I was wrong

I loved you since our eyes first met

It turns out I’m just a little lost

Without you to anchor me down

So I hope you’ll believe me when I say

It turns out I love you anyway

 

I had become a bit too distant

Afraid to say that I wanted you by my side

Every minute of every day

And that when I edged away

It was because I was afraid

Of never being quite good enough

To deserve even a little bit of you

 

I was tired of living in a cage

Not realizing how much better

It was than the world outside

I soon found myself tired

Of staring at my ceiling

Thinking of ways to apologize

 

It turns out you were right

I need you, can’t live without you

It turns out we shouldn’t have spent so much time fighting

Over things that didn’t really matter

And I can only hope I’ll be able to hear you say

“It turns out I love you anyway.”

 

I spent three days at friends’ apartments

Talking about how much I missed you

And when they asked me why I ever left

All I could do is cry a little

And say, I don’t know anymore

 

 

 

 

I’ve been cruising from place to place

Drinking away my sorrows

Once I thought I saw your face

But it was just my misery reflected in the mirror

And I swore I never loved you anyhow

 

It turns out I was wrong

I loved you when our eyes first met

It turns out I’m just a little lost

Without you to anchor me down

And I just hope you’ll believe me when I say

It turns out I love you anyway

 

I’m standing in front of your apartment

My head held down in shame

I expect you to yell, I expect you to fight

Instead you just looked at me with cold, blue eyes

And say “I thought you never really loved me anyway”

 

It turns out I was wrong

I’ve loved you since our eyes first met

And it turns out I’m just a little lost

Without you to anchor me down

And I only hope you’ll believe me when I say

It turns out I love you anyway

 

Well it turns out I was wrong

I’ve spent every moment missing you

And it turns out I’m just a little lost

Without you to hold onto

And I only hope you’ll believe me when I say

It turns out I love you anyway

The End
