I’m The Kind Of Person Who Stays And You’re The Kind Of Person Who Leaves


You left,
without saying a word.
You left
and left me wondering.

But then I stopped
because you always leave
and I had to ask myself
why do I always think you’ll stay?

Even if I showed you my best,
even if I looked my best,
even if I did everything for you,
you’ll still leave.

Because you find peace in running,
you think it sets you free.
But you don’t know that running away
is sometimes nothing but a trap.

And I don’t run from things,
I don’t run from love,
I don’t run from the unknown,
I stay and I face it.

And I don’t know why I ever thought
that you and I could be the same,
because every time you remind me
how we’re nothing alike.

Because I’m the kind of person who stays
and you’re the kind of person who leaves.
I’m the kind of person who shows up for love
and you’re the kind of person who hides from it. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
