"Even I" as written by and Kristen Elizabeth/douglas May....
I don't want to notice
I don't want to see
Even I don't give up
Even I won't give up

You're breaking surface
So what's left of me?
Tell me when is enough
Tell me I should give up

It's not the way you move
It's your words
Though they soothe,
They're not telling the truth

Didn't I know you?
Didn't I try to
Carry on while just believing in you?
Didn't I give up, everything?
Tell me now,
If there a reason for anything?

My heart it was open
You stepped through the door
It is tearing me up
Giving in, giving up
Left here always hoping
One day there'd be more
Even I don't give up
Tell me when is enough

I see the strings you pulled
I'm not blind
And I'm not fooled
Well you know it's true

Didn't I know you?
Didn't I try to
Carry on while just believing in you?
Didn't I give up, everything?
Tell me now,
If there a reason for anything?

Well here we are
Glance away
I wanted you
You couldn't stay
Reaching out
Reaching in
And will I be here till the day?
You found another
To pack away from
I won't make the same mistake again, no.

Didn't I know you?
Didn't I try to
Carry on while just believing in you?
Didn't I give up, everything?
Tell me now,
If there a reason for anything?

Didn't I know you?
Didn't I try to
Carry on while just believing in you?
Didn't I give up, everything?
Tell me now,
If there a reason for anything?

Cause even I don't give up
Even I don't give up
Even I don't give up
Even I don't give up

I don't want to notice
I don't want to see
Even I don't give up
Even I won't give up

    General CommentThis is exactly what I'm going through right now. Maybe no one will read these lyrics and see this post, but I'm going to use it as a way to vent. I can't sleep because of it.
    This girl got out of a bad relationship with a guy who didn't realize how good he had it with her about 2 months ago. I've been her best friend for about a year but in the last month things changed. We started growing closer and things just felt right. We were practically perfect for each other.
    But in the past week, I feel her drifting away. She doesn't want to hurt me, so she tries to force herself into liking me. But, as much as I like her and how much it kills me to say this, she's not being honest with herself. At he beginning, maybe it was just infatuation, but for some reason, the draw just isn't there. But, I want whatever makes her happy, and if that means it's not with me so be it. But part of me doesn't want to give up. I could be so much more for this girl if she'd give me the time, but I also can live with the thought that she doesn't like me as much as I like her. I want to try to move forward, but you can't force or schedule love. It's just gotta happen. There aren't hesitations. You fall head over heels on a daily basis. This girl is so indecisive it drives me crazy, she doesn't know what she wants. I made her a promise when things started out that I would prove to her that not all guys are the same. But now I'm fidning it difficult if she doesn't even want to see. She's got me by a string, and I'm struggling to find the courage to just confront her about it. It's not fair to either one of us.

    Fuck it though, I'm just going to be honest with her though. Speak from the heart, either way, it'll be closure. Better than not knowing whether to wait or forget. This way I know for sure.
