You Always Hurt the Ones You Love

You always hurt the ones you love,
As if that makes it okay to tell your friends the things that embarrass me,

Laughing along with them at the things you’ve said to me.

You always hurt the ones you love,

As if that makes it alright for you to get in my face over nothing and scream,

Only to come back acting like flowers can cover up what I really see.

You always hurt the ones you love,

As if that makes it perfectly fine that you will throw me aside and leave,

Showing me what you really mean when you plead,

You always hurt the ones you love.

 

No, No, NO.

As if we haven’t always heard that love makes the world go round,

Isn’t that why we hurt everyone, in countries all around?

You never hurt the ones you love,

As if getting your heart broken means everyone else needs to be torn down,

Chilling the air with your cold stare without even uttering a sound.

You never hurt the ones you love,

As if you’re showing you care by making and watching them come unwound,

Knowing their loyalty deserves better than Our King’s thorn crown.

You never hurt the ones you love.

 

You always hurt the ones you love,

As if the people’s tongues that speak these words know what it’s like,

To feel that before hurting them you’d give your own life.

You always hurt the ones you love,

As if repeating this soul-tearing mantra keeps them from strife,

Justifying their words and actions that only exist in spite.

Not that these tongues don’t deserve love,

As if they don’t know that these actions of hurting people will be at a price,

For that one day someone will rule their world with the psyche,

That you always hurt the ones you love.
