“Can’t Walk Away”

 

From high above

the clouds

I see

the people

and life’s

travesties

the answers

that

I hoped to

find

are somewhere

lost

inside my mind

I’d fight the

world

to be with

you

I’d rather

die

than just be

used

I never

could quite

realize

the games you

played

were based on

lies

I haven’t the

ability

to stop the

pain

you inflict on

me

the letters that

you say you

sent

were never

written

never meant,

“I can’t stop

myself

from staying

my heart

you keep

betraying

if I could

leave

I’d walk

right out on

you”

the sun burns

brightly

overhead

you treat me

like our love

is dead

you fill me

full of hopes

and dreams

your words are

never

what they

seem,

I’m tired of

your lying

it’s me who

does the

crying

if I can’t walk

I beg you

to leave me

I never learn

please won’t

you set me

free,

my love for

you

is not

civilized

I’m drowning in

your pool of

lies

I want to be

more

than a pawn

if I was

stronger

I’d be gone,

“I can’t stop

myself from

staying

my heart

you keep

betraying

if I could

leave

I’d walk right

out on you”

abuse

is my reality

come claim

your shallow

victory

you keep me

just because

you can

I try and run

you take my

hand,

I’ve got nowhere

left

for me

to go

I always end

up

coming home

I pray each

day

you’ll finally

see

that you alone

can set me free,

the truth just

keeps surviving

I wished I kept

on driving

cause we both

know

your over

loving me

but I’m the

fool

who can’t stop

loving you

I’ll never ever

walk away

from you

you know

that’s something

I will

never do…
