when you hold her close
she tells she feels loved
but when she looks at you
you never do

when you wrap her in your arms
she says you make her world spin

but when she hugs you back
you feel incomplete

when you kiss her
she says you make her heart flutter

but when she kisses you back
you don’t feel a thing

when you make love
she says you’re the one

and you wonder
because you don’t feel the same

everything she ever does
always falls short

because although we are miles apart
I still exist in your thoughts

your smile’s a fake one
so is the love you pretend

no matter who you are with
I’ll always be the one you could never forget…
