Our Wants

I wanted to tell you that I love you
That I’d give anything to keep you
That you’re the reason my heart beats

I wanted to ask you if you could wait
If you’d miss me if we never talked again
If you’d never give up on me or leave

I wanted to show you how much I care
How much you really mean to me
How much I miss you when we’re apart

But you don’t care about what I want
You only care about your needs
And I can’t take that anymore
