  • It's all on me, it's my mistake
    I said "I don't love you" a little too late
    But I guess there ain't ever a right time
    And I don't know why it's called a goodbye

    Go run my name into the ground
    Tell everyone you know just how
    How I slammed the door on our forever
    But I promise you it's for the better

    I hope you find what you were looking for
    I hope your heart ain't hurting anymore
    And you get moving on, all figured out
    And you don't hate me somehow
    'Cause I hope you're happy now

    Who knew this heart could break this hard
    Or a love like ours could fall apart
    Without so much as a warning
    I thought that I was what you wanted

    Well I guess you found what you were looking for
    I guess my heart ain't worth it anymore
    I'm a wreck, I'm a mess
    And I ain't got nothing left
    And so I hope you're happy now

    I hope you find what you were looking for
    I guess my heart ain't worth it anymore
    Hope you get moving on, all figured out
    And you don't hate me somehow
    I'm a wreck, I'm a mess
    And I ain't got nothing left
    So I hope you're happy now
    Happy now
    Oh, I hope you're happy now Writer/s: Carly Pearce, Jonathan Singleton, Luke Combs, Randy Montana

  • Left Head Kick from Middle Class UsaGreat song just heard it this year. I’m not a country fan but this song rang home for me.

    I was in a relationship with a woman for seven years, very intense. She is a beautiful woman, looks 10 years younger. They all start out great don’t they?

    I’m not a doctor but it turns out she had either borderline personality or BPD traits that controlled her life. Unfortunately she was molested as a child by family members. Got into a abusive relationship/ marriage with this guy and he used to beat her up et Cetera. Then I come along.

    I feel a lot of empathy for her, a lot of desire to be with her, to try to protect her.

    But her anger issues, the insecurities, the years of being treated like s--t cannot be erased. That coupled with my stubbornness, not wanting to be married, not wanting children led to problems down the line We ended up fighting a lot more than usual and she was saying hurtful things.

    She said some stuff to me that Ill never forget and led me to changing my phone number.

    She told me onetime last year during an argument, “if you were a real man you would’ve let me go two years ago.”

    Fine lady, you’ve got it. I’m history and my number is now changed!

    I hope you’re happy now.

    But I think about her every day. Funny how I miss the old days. Not really funny I just miss the old days before things got complicated. When I was her knight in shining armor. When I could do no wrong. When we were so into each other and I couldn’t wait to be with her. And then things slowly, started to change. How I wish for the days of old. I miss them very much.

    I guess that’s life, and life goes on.
