The Other Girl

A friendship
Innocent and true
No matter the hardships
We would make it through
But the passion started to burn
Friendship set on fire
No way to extinguish
The flames grew higher and higher
Out of our control
Rumors began to take their toll
Only tried to do what was right
Even while apart, my thoughts returned to you each night
Finally our chance
A time for me and you
But wait,
To whom are you really true?
You turn your back without a second glance
Too broken down to beg you for a chance
The smug look on her face
The way you take her hand
I smile through the tears
Hold myself together the best I can
Should have listened to the birds that whispered in my ear
But your empty promises were all that I could hear
When I look into your eyes, I know that this is it
Turns out it was only me that Cupid chose to hit
My time spent with you is now only but a whirl
I see it clearly now, I was just the "other girl"
