I’m starting over again,
Feeling alive instead of dead,
I’ve made mistakes, who hasn’t,
But giving you my heart was the biggest.
Times were tough but
We had it all, didn’t we honey,
But the day you threw me away like
I was garbage I closed the door to my heart.
I’ll never be that girl again,
So fragile, so weak, so afraid of
Love, I’m facing my demons and I’m
Wading through the past, trying to find myself.
My heart was wearing
Thin but now I’m stronger,
You’re nothing but a stranger now,
And I’m moving on from the days when you were mine.
And maybe one day
You’ll look back and realize
I was the best thing in your dirty,
Miserable life and the mistake was letting me go.
But maybe not, it’s really
No longer my concern, you’ve
Turned your back a long time ago,
Now it’s time for me to walk away, alone.
I wanted you to stay,
I was in love with you but
Sometimes the thing you want
Isn’t always the thing you need, I know now.
Just tell me one thing,
Tell me if I ever meant any
Thing to you at all, even just once,
Damn, there I go getting all weak again.
You left a hole inside me
But slowly he’s the one who’s
Filling it with all the love and kindness
One can possess in this condemned world.
So now there’s you and
Now there’s him and I, but
No matter what you’ll always be
The first Love who broke my heart in the worst way....
