I say goodbye to wicked ways
I have resigned to trust my heart
To do what's right, sincere fresh start
Though it might not be just what I want
What might have been will always haunt
My sky is strange, my nights are worse
I'm not prepared to face this curse
Trouble bottled nice and neat
Ignored the lies and feigned belief
Benefit of endless doubt
Pushed away to go without
Tail between these weary legs
Walk away or face the shame
So much lost with nothing to show
The time has come to let it go.
No secrets in exchange for mine
Ignored, belittled, time after time
Excuses easy, I let them be
Each one stole a piece of me.
You'll never know the cost I paid
I never told, I simply stayed
Waiting, hoping, you'd finally see
What you thought game was sincerity.
Will you wonder what might have been
The chance now gone, never again
I see you now for what you are
Yet another ugly scar.
