How could you say we could still be friends
When we never shared the same emotional lens
Everytime you see me your heart gets intense
It’s obvious you love me but you keep hiding behind a pretense

I laid my heart out for you
And you walked all over it with your matching shoe
I crawled, asking “what you want me to do”
You looked me in my eye and gave me my heart to chew

They say the best things in life are not free
Because you were the best thing in my life, I refused to let you be
I became the friend you talk to when no one was there but me
The one you complain to on how your boyfriend cheats

I was heartbroken but delighted hearing your voice
I kept crying wondering when you would realize
I was the bestie in the friendzone that had to rejoice
Giving you advice on how to go about with your love life

I understood you never liked me like I loved you
You never saw me as the man who will take you beyond the moon
Wake up to my breakfast and visit the zoo
Whom before you go to sleep would say “Ï love you”

With time I got used to the pain
The headaches stopped affecting my brain
My tears no longer poured like rain
My heart began to turn sane

Yet we became closer friends
But that didn’t stop my painful trends
I always wonder to myself when this would end
But how I could I live in a world without my gem

He later cheated with your best friend
You came to me crying as the dependable friend
I cheered you up and made the situation less tense
Even convinced you to look at it in a lighter sense

weeks later you came back to me saying you’ve fallen in love
It’s been sudden but its like this person has you in his palm like gloves
How this time around you believe he is your true love
Only for me to ask who and you mention a name that wasn’t mine

They say better late than never
But I cannot be chasing after you forever
As much as I would wish you to be my lover
You’ve made your choice and I hope that choice would treat you better

How could you say we could still be friends
When we never shared the same emotional lens
Everytime you see me your heart gets intense
It’s obvious you love me but you keep hiding behind a pretense
