I’ve run ’til i’m breathless

I’ve run ’til i’m breathless; just to go the extra mile. Given all i have; Just to make you smile. I’ve done all you asked and so much more. But oh,how each endeavour you seem to ignore. I’ve loved you with my heart,my soul,my mind. Given you a love so hard to find..but still you live everyday like you can’t see. The pain,the agony y…ou cause to me. I’ve tried to tell myself that may be you’ll change. That one day,soon,you won’t act so strange. But more and more we grow apart. And every day,you break my heart. I’ve tried to hold on,for ol’ times’ sake,tried to make real a love that’s now fake….But baibe i’m leaving you.Honey,i’m gone.Breathless from a different race,my race to be alone.
