(That Thing I Do)

I Will Not

If you merely consider me an option,
Nothing more than an afterthought;
I will not prioritize you when you have nobody else.

If you only speak to me because you need to be heard,
When your echoes fall silent when I need to know you’re there;
I will not be there for you when you drown in solitude.

If you choose not to live your life,
And fade away with every heartbeat;
I will not mourn you when your days have passed.

If you care and you’re there only in convenience,
When your smile shines only in the day,
I will not love you. Not anymore.
