I'm Gonna Make Myself Forget

You toyed with my affections!
You played me for a fool!
I wish, I could have sensed the truth,
I wish, I'd "Gone to School"!

I know I should have listened,
to the warnings given me!
But, I so believed you loved me,
I was just too blind to see!

I thought that you were happy.
That's the way it seemed to me.
But, you tried to change me, into someone,
I did not want to be!

My heart is not a plaything!
I'm not a puppet on a string!
It's a shame, the way you treated me!
My love, could not have meant a thing!

I'm not putty in your hands, my dear.
I'm not made of molding clay.
If you can't accept me as I am,
then please, just go away!

You never really loved me,
but, that don't matter anymore!
I'm not the fool I used to be,
so, I'm walking out the door!

I never really stood a chance!
That's my main regret!
I know this won't be easy,
but, I'm gonna make myself forget!

I know that I can do it!
I know I have the knack!
Once I put the past behind me,
you can bet, that I'll be back!
