In the game of chess that's called life, I was just a pawn. You used me and then threw me away when you were done with me.

I bet you, don’t even know my name anymore,

And I bet that you’ve moved on, from me, by now.

I’ve always had a problem with living in the past,

Cause the future terrifies me, and I hate having

To lose contact with people, that I once knew.

It’s so strange, to see someone that you,

Used to be so close with, in public,

And they act like they don’t know you at all.

That’s the kind of shit that cuts deep.

 

I want you to look me, in the eyes,

And tell me that you never loved me.

Tell that you never cared at all,

Cause surely you’re acting like,

You’ve never ever met me before.

You won’t tell me, anything that I don’t

Already know, but I wanna hear you say it anyways.

 

You had this all planned out, from the very start,

I played my part so well, I should win a fucking Oscar,

Cause I got stuck in your massive web of lies,

I should’ve known better, I should’ve seen this coming.

It didn’t take me long to fall head over heels, for you,

But goddammit, I just didn’t want to be alone,

Is it that hard to understand, why, I fell so hard?

 

In the chess game of life, I was just the pawn,

I was expendable, so you threw me away,

When you didn’t need me anymore,

I bet you never cared about me, at all.

 

I was so ready, to give you all of my love,

But you ran away before we could get anywhere.

What happened to us? What the fuck happened?

How could it all go so bad, so god damn fucking fast?

Maybe if I had tried harder, I could’ve saved it.

Or maybe if you tried harder, then I wouldn’t

Have felt so unwanted and unloved.

You never gave a fuck at all,

And that’s the hardest part,

To come to terms with.

 

I got fucking used again, tell me,

Why does this keep happening to me?

I keep looking back through all our old conversations,

Analyzing every single word, wondering if there was,

Anything that would’ve made me realize,

What a fucking bitch you are.

 

I should’ve seen this coming, I should’ve known better.

Everyone around me, said that you were bad news,

I told them to go fuck themselves, cause I thought,

That was just rumors and slander, I was hoping

That you were much better than that, but

I couldn’t have been more fucking wrong.

I can’t face my friends, cause I’m afraid that

They’ll rub it in my face, or tell me to fuck off.

I’m sorry that I didn’t trust you guys or listen to your advice,

If I could take it all back, I definitely would.
