Just walk away, because there's nothing here to look back on.

These are lies I'm no longer believing
and words that I've no need to say
Your tears are no longer decieving
and now they just stand in our way
I'm sick of this game that we play
How could we get this far off track?
I can see why you're going away
and never looking back

I'm not one you can lightly betray
I'm not sure what you have that I lack
But I'm sure that you're going away
and never looking back

For you, I am no longer grieving
You're no one I need to obey
I really don't care if you're leaving
and I'm not going to beg you to stay
The skies overhead seem so gray
but your heart is a landscape of black
as you turn and start walking away
I know you are not looking back

I will not be your wilted bouquet
something fragile for you to attack
Just watch me now, walking away
and never looking back
