Track Name: I'm Not Weak
It's always late at night when these thoughts they seem to culminate.
They almost make sense in my dream like state
The words are so loud, they're so loud in my brain.
They scream if I loved you less I'd be okay.

But you knew it
All I'd ever done is forgive your flaws
You knew it
That I can't help myself at all
Not at all

I finally realize that's it ok to break
I finally realize that it's ok to not feel hate
I finally realize I'm not weak for always forgiving
That I'm not weak

As I walk away I curse the whole universe
For not splitting love is perfect halves so we're equally hurt
I curse myself for heavy thinking,
Feeling all this pain,
It's like a thousand bricks,
A thousand bricks deep seated in my brain

I know who I am and it's okay
I'll love you as I walk away, I'll know you are and I pray you'll find that person someday.

I'm not weak
