I Would Rather Be With You

I would have rather been with you
But you broke my heart
And fractured it into tiny little splinters
Though hoping that you loved me too
And knowing that you didn't
I would have rather been with you
In thy arms loving you
Feeling all the joys I yearned to feel
Being silenced when I was with you
But then the crippling pain
That you don't love me like I love you
Breaks me and it's broken me before
And now I have no innocence left in store
So it's a choice between being the sacrificial goat
Or being in the arms of he who loves me so well
Has seen hell
And cherishes me like I love you
Giving me a whole new view
But I can still see through
And I would rather be with you.
