It Takes Two

It takes two to be in love
Many people overlook that fact
 
No matter how hard or how strong you may love someone
The beauty is in being loved back
 
Hearts that reside in love on their own
Can't value actions over the worth of words
 
Because empty words are all they have.
 
A place to crawl up inside and hide
From the truth they do not hold
 
There is no action.
 
It takes two people to be in love.
 
So, when you choose to do it alone
Who’s to blame for the broken heart?
 
I blamed him…
 
The words he said, that I believed  
That I delved inside so I could read
 
Coming out with lies
Half made up by me
 
But I should have blamed myself.
For being too blind to see.
 
I know what love looks like
Why should it be any different for me?
 
But unrequited love
See’s what it wants to see.
 
Until it just can’t take any more
A tired heart in pieces
On the floor
 
Because, it takes two to be in love.
 
So if you choose to do it alone
Who do you blame for your broken heart?
 
I wonder if he blames me…?
 
I wouldn’t blame him
I was weak
 
But I told him I wasn’t looking for anything deep
I kept him at arms length
 
Never fully part of me
But he was falling in love.
 
I should have walked away
But I loved him too much to hurt him
 
So I stayed,
 
So who’s to blame?
 
He knew he didn’t have me,  
That he never really had my heart
 
But I guess he chose to go it alone
But you just can’t be in love  
On your own
 
It takes two
 
Something I already knew
 
So I guess this one’s on me too.
