Left Behind

A beautiful girl sits at the computer and stares
Waiting by herself for someone to care
No messages pop up, no one calls her phone
Life passes her by as she sits home alone
Her heart hurts with emptiness, there’s nothing inside
She just needs a friend in whom she can confide
She wishes things were different, the way they used to be
When she mattered to people, or so it seemed
Those people she thought would be her best friends forever
At the first sign of change did what they said they would never
They found new friends and didn’t need her anymore
But change is change− all is fair in love and war
She still loves them now even if they’re gone
It’s a shame she’s the only one who wasn’t able to move on
She can burst any second, the tears are so hard to fight
She puts on an act at school, then cries herself to sleep at night
She’s at her lowest point but refuses to break
And continues to live the life that’s so ridiculously fake
She's living in the past, remembering days full of laughter
So whatever happened to living happily ever after?
