The things you said confused me
In your letter out of the blue
And then I remembered the things I said
And realised a few truths.
I know I said you’d break my heart
We now know that was true
Not because you were better than me
But because your life was unglued.
You thought my self-esteem was low
Because I looked for praise
But could it have been I admired you,
In almost every way?
You truly were my ideal guy
In every shape and form
Truth is, you couldn’t accept my love,
‘Cause your own esteem was torn.
