You were my first love, did you know that?
I’m sure you did. You were always pretty clever,
even if I didn’t always act like it.
When you said yes, I was so grateful.
Then you said no, and it was like part of me died.
It’s no excuse, but if I’d know then what I know now,
Maybe you and I could still have been close.
When I lost you, I didn’t just lose my highschool sweetheart,
I lost my best friend.
Everyone told me I wasn’t good enough for you.
In a way, I agreed. To me, you were an angel, incapable of wrong.
Things are different now though, Marisa. I’ve moved on. I’ve grown up.
There’s no right or wrong way to apologize for how I acted after we parted,
If I were you, I probably wouldn’t want to speak to me either.
Either way, you’ve changed me, and if I could go back and time and change things,
I think maybe I could have helped to change you for the better, too.
They say it’s the broken path that leads to paradise.
If that is the case, I guess I’ll just have to continue being grateful to you for breaking my heart.
