I’m tired of being your second choice

I remember the first day I told you “I love you”
you just look at me and smile
thinking I was just a comedian not your priority.

I remember how I wanted you in my life,
hoping we could be more than just a friend
but you kept telling me that you were not ready.

I remember each time you send me a message,
I will reply immediately,
even though it took you days before texting back.

I remember when you used to keep me waiting but never showed up
and I had to swallow all you excuses and insult
because I was so desperate to have you in my life,

Babe, I’m tired of being your second choice,
I’m tired of sitting down here hoping and crying for nothing,
I’m tired of being your side whatever, I deserve more.

I deserve someone who will make me a priority not an option,
Babe, I’m so afraid of breaking my own heart waiting for you.
I deserve more.
