You thought I betrayed you

And I'm ready to confess

I've betrayed and hurt many

And you no less

 

 

 

I get them to fall in love with me

They're wrapped around my finger

I push them away when I want to

But you decided to linger

 

 

 

They were all distractions

None of them were serious

They knew what I was

But you remained delirious

 

 

 

I break hearts for living

It's what I'm good at

I know where to hurt you

But perhaps you already knew that

 

 

 

I really did love you

But my love never lasts

My heart has already moved on

But yours remains in the past

 

Why can't you let go

And accept me for what I am?

Maybe it'd be easier

If we never spoke again

 

 

 

Don't try to fix me

Many have tried

Don't try to love me

Remember all my lies?

 

 

 

Remember how I hurt you?

Hold onto that thought

I caused you so much pain

And I seem to do that a lot

 

 

 

Please don't forgive me

I'm trying to set you free

I know this sounds harsh

But you can't love me

 

 

 

please don’t say you love me

I’ll just stab you in the back

please don’t say you need me

I don’t have time for that

 

 

 

theres a light in your eyes

that I don’t want to take

you have a good heart

which I don’t want to break

 

 

 

I'm putting my foot down

You have to move on

You can't keep loving me

Your trust must be gone

 

 

 

If I don't want to hurt you

Then I have to set up walls

I distance myself from people

And you most of all



 

I'll have to hurt you so badly

You'll never want to come back

I'll have to betray you

Then you'll be free at last

 

 

 

You think I have no heart

And I completely agree

So please save yourself the trouble

And never fall in love with me.
