The Difference Between You And I

We were both the same...
The same person of the exact same cloth
Both misunderstood throughout our lives
And we both had the same sorrow plaguing our memories
We had loved ones who could care less about us
Trusted people who deserved nothing
Loved someone...
Someone who could never love us back

We never gave up, no matter what life threw at us
We kept at it, even though it was a losing battle
There was nothing that could hold us back forever
Forever away from that dark and cold ledge
Because in our still frozen hearts...
The sad hope that everything would change for the better
Was fading away far too fast...

Our worlds faded to black
As we watched the ones we loved leave
If only we could have loved each other...
Perhaps then...we could have saved each other's heart
We were the perfect pair of black sheep

The difference between you and I...

Is that I chose to live...
