Compliment without strings

compliments without strings

“you told me I had to try harder, but I wasn’t trying at all…”

I told you you were beautiful
The most beautiful person I had ever known
You told me I had to try harder
But I wasn’t trying at all.
When I told you you’re beautiful
I didn’t want anything from you
When I told you you’re beautiful
I was telling the truth.

How many have said those words
And you pulled them close
Only soon they left you
Now you’re closed to the truth
So they have to try harder
To open your heart and desires.

When I told you you’re beautiful
I’m not one of them.
