just say it


"Why would he do this"
That's what you always said.
And i kept my mouth shut,
As i always did.
"Why can't i find a guy like you"
Here we go again.
Laugh it off like always,
Cause to you I'm just a friend.
A new relationship,
With the same type of man.
Just a matter of time,
Before she says it again.
It's been two months,
And i haven't heard a word.
Why would he do this"
That's what you always said.
And i kept my mouth shut,
As i always did.
"Why can't i find a guy like you"
Here we go again.
Laugh it off like always,
Cause to you I'm just a friend.
A new relationship,
With the same type of man.
Just a matter of time,
Before she says it again.
It's been two months,
And i haven't heard a word.Maybe this ones different,
But that's just absurd.
Next time we talk,
I'll have the courage to speak.
Tell her what's on my mind,
And what she means to me.
Another week goes by,
But there's a call out of the blue.
I look at my phone,
And by suprise it was you.
I get myself ready,
For what I'm about to do.
I pick up and start speaking,
To fast to catch my breath.
I want to get it all out,
So there is nothing left.
I let you speak,
After i got it all out.
It's not you on the other end,
It's your mom and she cried out.
"I'm so sorry you didn't know,
But a week ago she passed away.
That guy she was with,
Beat her until she gave way."
Took her own life,
With a little note that said.
"Why can't i find a guy like you",
And i just bowed my head,
As tears streamed down my face.
If i would've manned up you would still be safe.
