The Game

No more breaking down,
I'm not gonna give up.
I know it in my heart
Someday you'll come around.
I know I screwed up,
Months ago on that day.
You don't have to repeat it,
I hear the words you say.

I'll try to stay strong,
Even though I'm weak.
Confusing me delights you,
Everytime we speak.
Ever since that day,
You claim I turned you down,
You've tried to get back at me,
It worked and made me frown.
But now I know,
So its alright.
Lets stop this crazy madness,
And get along tonight.

No more breaking down,
I'm not giving up.
I know it in my heart someday,
You will come around.
Everyone messes up.
It's still okay.
I want you in my life,
Whatever the price to pay.

It was so long ago,
The days go by,
Everybody still knows.
We act like kids,
Pretending this is a game.
When does it end,
What really is there to gain.


As we get older
Time really does fly by,
I see you in the hall
And always wonder why,
We acted immature,
Kept going on with this game.
Its time to grow up,
No more playing these games.
Fess up, be honest,
Before the truth goes awayyyyy.

No more breaking down,
I still haven't gave up.
But I won't wait a year,
If you're not coming around.
I'll dry my tears,
And open my eyes.
I'm done with playing the games,
I'm tired of trying to hide.
I'll tell you the truth,
Because whatever you say,

I'm done with telling lies,
No more trying to hide,
I'll just let go and cry.
Even if it means,
Even if it meanns..
Even if it means, goodbye today.
