You didn’t give even half, but I do know that I gave more than you
I was running for someone who wasn’t even walking for me
This love didn’t He ‘s …, but he’s delusional
Now there’s nothing left of what he had
I’m telling you honestly
It’s cold like Christmas
It’s better that this be over now
 ( Now, now )
Don’t repeat me again, that’s already I saw ( I already saw her )
That I love you, but it’s that I love myself more (More me)
It’s a necessary goodbye
What was incredible one day became routine
Your lips don’t taste like anything to me
Now it’s the opposite, and the worst thing is that
