Why do I stay

And give so many chances

To the people that can hurt 

Without the need of swords or lances

 

Why do I smile

And tell people I'm fine

When the truth is

That I'm hurt and broken inside

 

Why do I trust 

After so many lies

Believing things that cannot be true

But still willing to try

 

...

 

Why did I leave

When I said I would never go

And to hurt myself more

As I reach a new low

 

Why did I cry

With the happiness that was shown

And the felling that was given

Of never being alone

 

Why did I lie

To everyones face

Laughed and took advantage

Now an utter disgrace

 

Why did I
