Who Were You Trying to Impress?

Updated on September 1, 2013

I wonder who holds the key to my door
But maybe I’ve been holding it all along
I walk by every princess in town
But maybe it’s me who wears a broken crown

Brushing your hair to look like a birds wing
You didn’t see me in the mirror
I didn’t know who you were trying to impress
Was it me or someone else?

It’s not an easy thing to accept
When your pride decides to tell the truth
The steps I’ve been climbing were built by me
And not by a girl I assumed was too hard to get

Trying on a dress with the sun shining through
You didn’t see me in your closet
I didn’t know who you were thinking of
Was it me or some other love?

Someone told me to look a women in the eye
Tell her she is beautiful and how you need her
I thought every man acted this way
I lost you when I decided to be different

Walking out the door looking like love tonight
You didn’t see me close it behind you
I didn’t know who you were going to see
Was it me or the man who set you free?

      Thank you Jackie and Nellieanna!

      @Nikki - What I was trying to say in a vague sort of way is that I didn't take the advice I'd been given and it cost me...

      Hmm...this made me feel like I was being stalked by a peeping tom lol but the subject at hand is no laughing matter, its hard to see the one you love seemingly not care about you, and worse to think shes out caring for another. The only part I did not get was if you were telling her she's beautiful and all that why would you stop? You said "I lost you when I decided to be different" ?? Just something I wondered when I read that part.
