The fire in my eyes
I should use to light underneath me
To move me from this hesitation
And get back to reality
Finally break from the shell that I was encased in
I just needed the right motivation
To clear my head
With this verbal redemption
Karma may have paid you a visit my dear
But too little too late I fear
Hide behind those words you write if it makes you sleep better
Justifying your actions as if that makes the heartbreak any easier
Don't even try to relate, you've never been in my head
So walk on..keep thinking that lie of 'our love' instead
Don't think you did me a favor
Giving me that 'clean break'?
That's only a slight sting I'll savor
But that'll be your biggest mistake
You're not as complex as you think
It's purely black and white
You knew what you'd do when you called
So stop questioning whether it was right
That 'burn' you gave....
Ha! Darlin I walked through those flames unscathed
However I did cry thats true...
But only briefly were those tears for you
My heart remains intact...
as the roots grow back into place
I'm now going to take my time...
my feelings dont belong in this rat race
If I was your 'best thing'
You sure were in a hurry to give up
But now I can move on...
and away from this fuck up
You gave me your worst
When you proclaimed to be your best
Since you've been gone...
So much better now I rest
So what you've learned from your lessons remember them fondly
I'm walking away from you never looking back behind me
I deserve to laugh and smile
Such feelings I haven't had in a while
To finally be happy with someone who knows me right
Gives me a good reason to be up all night...
I want to feel those heart flutters and have my words adorably stutter
When I'm around this one man that makes me feel like no other
I'll never be bitter or hateful
Instead I'm forever grateful
As this dismal smoke clears..I finally see
I can now move on and eventually fall in love again...
With a wonderful man that would sit next to me holding my hand
Feeling safe and complete..making me laugh til theres pain in my cheeks
I can't wait to see each day that comes now
A future I once thought so bleak
You can keep saying that you tried..but in the end you failed miserably
I dont care for your regret...you will never again have me
So keep staring at those pictures and read those poems of the 'love' that you didnt want to stay
You've lost me forever...you'll have to live with that everyday
