You'll Play The Fool Today

by, Cassandra

Don't you ever take a hint?
I want to be left alone,
so just keep on walking by.
Don't stop to look me in the eye.

Why is it that when I want to be alone
you're always coming around;
but when I need you to hold my hand
you are nowhere to be found?

You can't keep coming back
every time you walk away.
I'm getting sick of forgiving and forgetting,
because… nothing is ever forgotten.

I remember every unchecked word,
every scar, every tear that you didn't wipe away,
every fear that I've kept inside because you weren't there.
I remember… but the question is: do you?

Do you remember how I smile?
Do you remember the sound of my laugh?
You better hope so, baby,
cause you're never hearing it again.

I'm through with sticking around
where I'm not supposed to be.
I'm through with wasting my life on you.
There's so much more I can be.

I'm not going to let life pass me by
and I'm not going to let love make me cry.
It's made me stronger then you'd ever think
and I'm not going to continue standing on the brink.

So take the hint this time.
I don't want you here.
This time I'm walking away,
and you'll play the fool today.
