Summer’s Explanation/500 Days of Summer

Every day I tried to say what you wanted me to say
I could feel the desire in me to be happy for once in my life
And that happiness existed with another person
I wanted it to be you
My family wanted it to be you
But I felt nothing
I felt emptiness
I felt shame
I felt like the love you gave me was unreachable
I reached for it
But it slid through my hands like air
Everyday I tried to say what you wanted me to say
But It honestly didn’t feel right.
