Long Gone

05-01-14

You say you know me

And all of my secret pains.

You say you see the real me

Under the grief and the decay.

Yet you can't look into my eyes

For more than a moment.

You're never there except to lie

And watch the torment.

Call me beautiful

All you want,

But you're a fool

If you think I'll go back to you; I'm long gone.

I'm stronger than you know

And I'm reaching for the stars

As I rise up from the snow

While you've already lost who you are.

I won't let you drag me down;

No, not anymore.

I'm tired of going round after round,

So I'm slamming our faded door.

Call my name

Through your tears

And stand in the rain

Through all your years.

I honestly don't care

About a man

Who pushed my loyal heart out of his hair

While claiming to still want my hand.

Call me beautiful

All you want,

But you're a fool

If you think I'll go back to you; I'm long gone.

You say you know me.

I tell you to not lie to me again.

You say you miss me,

But I tell you that I don't give a damn.

Can't believe that

I even stayed that long

When you treated me like an unwanted rat.

And you wonder why I'm long gone.
