Chapter One

Disclaimer: I DO NOT OWN NUMB3RS OR ANY OF THE SONGS I USE IN THIS COMBINED SONGFIC THING. It is going to be a more than one chapter story. Yeap. Thank you.

Let's talk this over

It's not like we're dead

Was it something I did?

Was it something you said?

"Is it my fault?" Liz turned back, looking at Don.

Don looked at her in reply, saying nothing. It made no difference anyway. They were over. As much as she didn't want it to happen, did she know somehow? Somewhere, deep in her heart, that it was never meant to last? Was it delusion on her part?

Don't leave me hanging

In a city so dead

Held up so high

On such a breakable thread

She was a strong woman. Nothing could really tear her apart. So what? It's just another break up. Yeah, sure. It was probably her first serious relationship in a long time. No matter how strong she was and still is, it was going to affect her, one way or another. She felt vulnerable. So fragile, so lonely.

You were all the things I thought I knew

And I thought we could be

She tried. She really did. She tried so hard. Maybe it was her fault. She thought she knew him. She thought she could get over his trust issues and all. She thought they could be together.

You were everything, everything that I wanted

We were meant to be, supposed to be, but we lost it

And all of the memories, so close to me, just fade away

All this time you were pretending

So much for my happy ending

Maybe in her mind, she had a perfect fairytale ending. But in reality, she knew it was never going to happen. She loved him. He loved her. It was almost perfect. Searching for perfection in this imperfect world was never a smart thing to do. Perhaps he still loved Robin. Maybe that's why. She can't blame him. She knew it wasn't going to last. Not willingly, but she did. So much for happy endings and fairytales.
