The End

No one told me about this pain.
Everything hurts, even my pride.
It's these emotions I am forced to contain.

Tears have fallen from my eyes like a steady rain.
Nothing can take back those nights I've cried.
No one told me about this pain.

My feelings I cannot even explain.
To you, my heart was open wide.
It's these emotions I am forced to contain.

I'm at the point where I feel nothing but shame
Because I thought you were going to be my guide.
No one told me about this pain.

With you is where I wanted to remain.
Now I have to continue on with a long stride,
It's these emotions I am forced to contain.

Please tell me our relationship was not in vain.
I hope to not regret having tried.
No one told me about this pain.
It's these emotions I am forced to contain.
