*My Revenge*

The first time around you broke my heart.

I cried myself to sleep,

And couldn’t get you out of my head.

No matter how hard I tried,

I couldn’t keep a smile on my face.


The second time around I was cautious,

But the moment I looked into your hazel eyes

I feel all over again.

It resulted in heartbreak.


The third time around,

I was convinced we were really over,

Until you told me this time it would be different.

I fell once more, then you claimed you found something better.

This time my heart didn’t break,

It wasn’t able to any more.

It was already in a million pieces.


The fourth time was different.

I made you need me,

I made a shield around my heart.

This time I wasn’t out for love.

I was out for revenge.

This time you’d be the one crying.

This time you’d be the one missing me!
