Lyrics

I SEARCHED FOR WAYS TO HATE YOU
© D. Mark Ragg

The dinner was just perfect
We toasted times we?ve had
Then we walked along the street
Holding hand in hand
And back at my apartment
Things started to get hot
That is when I offered
A penny for your thoughts

Your timing was just awful
To share your thoughts of him
Our warm embrace grew cold
As that distance entered in
Whatever could I tell you
There were no words that fit
So I just said, ?go be with him?
And I got up from the bed

You sat in stony silence
As I searched for the right song
I needed traveling music
Oh I needed to be gone
But it was my apartment
Even though it was your call
So we sat upon the sofa
Just pretending we could talk

And I searched for ways to hate you
But love got in my way
I can hate the fact I loved you
I can hate the words you say
When you stopped our warm love making
To say you?d rather be with him
Oh that should fill my heart with venom
But it only filled with pain

I tried to talk about it
I tried to give you space
Hoping your heart would come around
But no, I was replaced
Now I think about your love
Those things that might have been
And I hug my wife and children
I?m so glad that I?m not him

And I searched for ways to hate you
But love got in my way
I can hate the fact I loved you
I can hate the words you say
When you stopped our warm love making
To say you?d rather be with him
I once felt sorry for myself
But now I pity him
Yeah, I once felt sorry for myself
But now I pity him
