And I changed myself for you.
So determined to keep you happy.
Don't even know who I am anymore.
You're yelling at me again.
And I'm locked in my room crying.
I promise I won't do it again.
Please stop screaming at me.
It's always better in the end.
I deserve this - I'm an awful girlfriend.
But it's the sex that keeps you here.
Your promise of forever keeps me.
God, how did I become so codependent?
I used to be strong once, opinionated.
You used to respect me for that.
Who are you? Who am I?
No, I'm not leaving, don't look at me like that.
I said forever, I'm supposed to mean it.
I have to stay - no one else loves me, or could.
And here I am, lying when I say I love you.
