You Were Not (original)

You are a ghost.
All the traces of you are gone.
I searched for a clue
Something to remind me of who you are

But there's nothing to see
Nothing to hear
You're nothing to me
So there's nothing to fear
Not anymore.

You were the one good thing in my life
When I needed someone in my life to hold me.
To console me.
And now I know how little you did.
When I needed someone to let me in you were not.
You were not.

Vanilla skies and those bright and shiny dreams
You loved me I know
But the way you showed me was mean

Not as wonderful as I thought you were
Not as good to me
Not worthy of all my time
You were not.
