Even if you love her right

Even if you were the reason she smiled

Or the consistency she needed 

Or the support she was missing

The most her fears could ever allow you to be is ‘too good to be true’

Because to her, the memory of that pain is more important than opportunities and possibilities 

She’s taken chances before and she just doesn’t have the time to see if you’re different 

Because even if you’re incredible, she’ll only see your flaws

And if you’re genuine, she’ll only see your mistakes

It’s easier to to complain than it is to change, so no matter how great your are, it’s a lot easier go be scared than it is to step up

And like it or not, that’s just what you will have to deal with, when you’re trying to love a heart you didn’t break

So if you aren’t patient and prepared for the long ride, just quit while you are ahead 

Because all she trusts is the game

And by the time you crawl that wall, she’ll have already moved her heart behind a taller one
