A person can only take so much
Guess you ran out of luck, huh?
What’s next? What did he do? What didn’t he do?
You can’t have your cake and eat it too.
How can she treat you like a king?
If you can’t understand what she speaks
He never says what he means
Don’t you get it? She’s not your queen
Anyone can solicit some explicit lines
But actions speak louder than words
Keep this mind for the next time
He’s trying to find his true love
Make her your one and only
Cause ignorance hides behind falsifications
Love and attention…
Was it too much to ask for?
She gave you a hundred and fifty percent
Nothing less, but nothing more
And to think that your expression was heaven-sent
Well, looks can be deceiving when you exaggerate to escape
And procrastinate on the moves she wanted to make
So what’s to blame?
It couldn’t be fame
We all know this game
It’ll never change
So all of his excuses are long term and lame
This expedition has expired
Send this message as “URGENT”
She’s ready to ride out without him
Cause he’s no longer worth it…
So pack up her bags and leave everything else behind
Cause you’ve coasted in neutral for the very last time
Out of sight and out of mind
Until the next time we see eye to eye
Closure from the unpredictable
These are her good-byes
