If we've got something going tell me why is he here?
You leave me hanging by a thread when the lion is near.

Gaara stared at Sasuke in disbelief. He seriously was going to leave and go pursue Orochimaru and just leave what they had been building together. Hell, he was already packed and ready to be out the door as soon as he said goodbye. Had Gaara really meant that little to him? Did he not see what he was walking away from?

I'm not about to drop the ball

"I got my ass kicked easily by Itachi weeks ago. I'm clearly not strong enough to kill that bastard yet. I need to do this Gaara, don't you understand?

You clearly cannot say:

Why can't you see with my hands holding your eyes open?
It's hard for me to think straight when your mouth is moving.

I wanted to tell him how much I loved him and I needed him here. I wanted to be selfish and keep the one who taught me about love even though I tried to kill him and his friends. He told me he wouldn't forget about me, and that he'd be back for me. I couldn't even get my mouth to form words. I wanted to scream at him, I wanted to bind him here with sand like the selfish bastard I knew I was in my black heart, but I couldn't. He tenderly pressed his lips to mine, and my eyes shut. When they opened, he was gone.

You could have been all I wanted and all that I need.
But you had to leave cause it's easy to fall in love with machines.

If Sasuke didn't kill Orochimaru, I, Gaara of the Desert most certainly would. That bastard took from me the only person who had truly loved me despite the monster that I am.

Well, he didn't lie. He did come back eventually. I guess he expected me to greet him with open arms. He returned to find me Sunagakure's Kazekage. He also discovered my conflicted heart.

Go away. No please stay.
Go away. You'll stay. Stay away.

Go away. No please stay.
Go away. You'll stay. Stay away.

He told me he loved me. Such dangerous words. I had wanted, needed to hear them once. But he was too late with his words this time.

Shut up, sit down, find your way out just leave me alone.
You can't make me believe that you have changed at all.
