Sold

1 It’s not hard to see

Why you left to go on ahead

Too many ghosts, too many miseries

Too many voices in your head

But after so long

To even think I’d still hold on

That’s insanity

To say the very least

You sold yourself to vanity

You sold yourself to hate

You sold yourself to misery

You sold yourself away

Too far away from me

May I remind you of

The deal we made before

When you said we weren’t in love

It was don’t turn around

If you walk out the door

You sold yourself to be a cynic

You sold yourself to rage

You sold yourself from the idealist

And bought your own cage

You came back

With no heart and no soul

I remembered

As you walked through the gate

That it’s better to give yourself

To something you love

Than to sell yourself

To something you hate
