Why should I care

About you at all

It's not like you'd do the same

Always wondering, worrying

Fearing and hoping

Caught in this cat and mouse game

Now looking back

It was all one sided

I was a friend to a leach

So I'm stepping back

Out and away

Well and far from your reach

I'm escaping your choke hold

Your disapproving glare

And I'll finally breathe and be free

I'll be who I am

And if I'm missed

You can come searching for Me
