I’m still taking the swords out of my back,
Trying not to bleed to death. I move forward, though, never back.
Why did you cheat on me? I dream about it sometimes.
You need to release me.
And don’t try to deny. I’m not coming back. Please, stop the lie.
Even before you said: "I do", You disrespected me, You made me a fool.
You don't know how much you really hurt me.
You nearly broke me.
I had to leave you.
Now I expect them to disappoint me at any time,
To put their hands on me, To make me cry.
You took my innocence away;
You taught me that love hurts.
Now healing is the only way.
Don't try to win me back,
Try to win yourself some self-respect.
Get it into your head.
I’m not coming back.
