All That You Have Lost

'Resentment' - I find this word easily rolls off my tongue these days.

I can't believe how pathetic you've gotten, it no longer surprises me what you do and say.

There doesn't have to be any connection, you pursue whatever you can get.

I guess it doesn't matter when you have no consequences, but one day karma will catch up to you along with your regrets.

Keep being proud of what you do to those poor girls, I'll let you keep convincing yourself you're a champ.

But don't come crying to me when you end up lonely, and get sick of living the way you do with your eyes damp.

Fooling around with girl's minds, day by day.

But when one actually likes you, you don't know what to say.

You don't know how to react, or what you should do.

And the only thing that got you into this mess was you.

Formerly close friends, until she fell for you.

I bet you never expected the day to come that she would give up and be through.

You'll regret it when she finally leaves, and you're left all alone.
