Let’s start Monday when out of the blue you said
Plans had changed you were good to not go
Pretended not a big deal but deep inside I was crushed
Hid the pain with understanding ‘cause what could I do?

Cried that day like I have never cried for you
How can you just walk in like that and let go
Thought that for weeks you could have told me
But always chose not to

Tuesday had been another story
As you proved how wishy-washy you could be
Never understood back then but I do now
That was all you and not a tinge of anything me somehow

Wednesday came and friends told me to keep my distance
Convinced them I could never bail on you just like that then
Gave you your options like a one-way ticket
Never used neither one nor two, dammit

Walked on thin ice by Thursday, I did
Never wanted to say the wrong words
Careful not to stir any feels

Silent Friday and I thought everything was fine
I underestimated where your psyche had gone

Come Saturday felt like something was off
Chose to ignore gut feeling and trusted your goof

But on Sunday as the weekend passed
Things had crumbled – just like that
And oh boy, I should have known… I should have…

So here I am thinking it all through
You were right, that week I loved you the same wrongfully so
I’m happier now, learned a lesson from that unholy week
After finding a part of me that you didn’t break
