with a single call from you.
Seems no matter how hard I tried,
there was nothing I could do.
Our clumsy steps fell out of sync
before the dance had ended.
I could only stare and blink
when you felt so offended.
I know my feelings grew too fast,
that I scared you with my plans.
You did not want our love to last,
to get so quickly out of hand.
I knew from the moment we met
that you could destroy my heart.
My determination was set—
nothing would keep us apart.
I counted on your affection
being equal to my own.
Now I know upon reflection
that your heart is made of stone!
