The biggest L

I'll turn off my feelings for you
Flip a switch and cull the zoo
And I'll stop saying that I love you
If that is what you really want, too
And I'll become cold and unfeeling
If it keeps you from backwards reeling
Surely I'll never lose this big feeling
But surely your life I won't be stealing
Have your boyfriend and start a family
Far better than this body I call calamity
But just don't begin to call me the enemy
You have always had a best friend in me.

Now I carry on for a little while but all the while
Running the laps, and running the wild mile
In my head, curled up thoughtless in bed
I'll carry on for just a little while longer
But there is a force that is stronger
Than strength of mind, peace of soul
And that is to release this tortured soul
