Dear Sam*

Long were the nights when my days once revolved around you
Counting my footsteps praying the floor won’t fall through again
And my mother accused me of losing my mind
But I swore I was fine


You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain
And I lived in your chess game, but you changed the rules everyday
Wondering which version of you I might get on the phone tonight
Well, I stopped picking up and this song is to let you know why


Dear Sam, I see it all now that you’re gone
Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress cried the whole way home
I should’ve known


Well, maybe it’s me and my blind optimism to blame
Or maybe it’s you and your sick need to give love then take it away.
And you’ll add my name to your long list of traitors who don’t understand
And I’ll look back and regret how I ignored when they said run as fast as you can


Dear Sam, I see it all now that you’re gone
Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress cried the whole way home

Dear Sam, I see it all now it was wrong
Don’t you think nineteen’s too young to be played by
Your dark twisted games when I loved you so
I should’ve known


You are an expert at sorry and keeping lines blurry
Never impressed by me acing your tests
All the girls that you’ve run dry have tired, lifeless eyes
‘Cause you’ve burn them out


But I took your matches before fire could catch me
So don’t look now
I’m shining like fireworks over
Your sad, empty town

Dear Sam, I see it all now that you’re gone
Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress cried the whole way home

I see it all now that you’re gone
Don’t you think i was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress wrote you a song
You should’ve known

You should’ve known
Don’t you think I was too young?
You should’ve known

*Sorry Taylor, let me borrow this to express my long overdue pautwas 🙂 Para makwa na ni sa isip ko kay daw dugay na gid ni dapat, daw last year pa kaso kay subong lang napagwa para ka let go na gid.
