Just by Andrea May

“I wrote this song after a breakup. It’s a sad song filled with broken hearts, broken promises, and pain. The word ‘just’ has a negative connotation in this song. It means that I thought that what I gave was enough, but in the end it just wasn’t enough. Imagine me shrugging my shoulders and throwing my hands in the air to signify the fact that I have to give up the situation. It just seemed like no matter what I did, I was always one step behind, or too little, too late.”


Verse 1:

I gave you time
I gave you my affection
All my attention
and you left me in the cold
Grace was extended
My heart was on the line
You broke it every time

If this was a give and take
I gave and you just took away


I just thought
I was someone worth fighting for
Now I’m just scarred
I’ve got these battle wounds
You should have tended to
But now I’m just stuck

Verse 2:

So I’m done
Being undone
I can’t take the blame
This wasn’t my mistake
I can’t change
The choices you’ve made

I thought this was a give and take
Well I gave but you just took away

*Repeat Chorus*


So I’m just here receiving blow after blow
When you gave up, you should have let me know
All your maybes and I don’t knows
Give me answer enough
It’s time to let go

*Repeat Chorus*
