You were a lesson to be learned
And I was the one who got burned,
I guess when it's the end it's the f******g end.
So I hope you choke on the words you screamed
Out, cursing my name when I didn't let you go
'Cause it turns out my Love was wasted on you.
I'm trying not to hate but it's so damn hard
When everything we had meant nothing to you
But it was everything to me.
My eyes burn from all the tears that leak out
From time to time, my heart breaks just a little
When I remember how you walked away.
Some day I'll find someone better,
Someone who knows what they have and
Doesn't take advantage of my Love like you did.
Someone who won't try to use me,
Who will Love me for who I am and doesn't
Talk behind my back about things that aren't even true.
Maybe it wasn't meant to be, maybe I was
Kidding myself, wanting to believe you Loved me,
But whatever it was, I hope you know, you're dead to me now.
Revenge is the sweetest dish ever concocted,
And maybe it's not right but it sure feels
Damn amazing, more than you made me feel.
So this is the last time I go through this,
It's time to live my life without your ghost
Haunting me all the time, without the memories.
I'm better off without you, it's true,
Even if you were all I ever wanted, thought I needed,
It wouldn't have worked, no matter how we tried.
Don't say you Loved me, you wouldn't
Have walked away so damn easily if you had,
Wouldn't have left me with all this anger and pain.
Sad thing is though, I know when I wake up in the morning
And fall asleep at night, your sleeping image in the morning sun
Will come to mind, arms wrapped tight around me.
And I can't seem to shake this sadness,
Although my dreams aren't filled with you anymore,
But sometimes I swear I can still feel you, here, holding me, and I cry.
I remember how you would whisper
Sweet and low in my ear, that you loved me,
You'd never let me go, you'd always be here, but those were lies.
As I lied to you about letting you go if asked,
But then you countered with another lie, that you'd
Never ask, but here we are, in this chasm of dark goodbyes.
You turned your back when I needed you most,
You couldn't even act like a man when you left, just
Gave me a message saying it was over and went back to her.
I think that was the worst, that you ended it so
Suddenly, so easily, and went crawling back to the girl
You broke up with for me, but I suppose that's how it goes...
