Breaking up with you

Breaking up with you

I had to leave

I had no other choice

You tore me down in every way

Left me crying alone

I felt like I was being ravaged

By some animal

Holding me at bay

And you did for awhile

Took away my spirit

Took away my happiness

Took away my peace

But you never took away my soul

When I went away

I found myself again

An island was my paradise

It was my saviour

I couldn't depend on anyone else

Only me to save myself

And seeing the beauty of that ocean

Seeing the beauty of those people

And how my life could be

Saved me

And set me free

When I came back

You had no power over me


I was able to let go

And to be who I was meant to be

Signs showed up of who you were

How do fools fall in love...

Playing all around me

And brought stinging to my heart

When I came back you were nothing

Just crawling on the floor

Just as I had left you

For whatever you were looking for

All of your lies and your promises

Meant nothing to me

And when I called you

Your cold accusing voice

Was the end of it all

You made me shed tears

For the last time

From then on I stood alone and proud

All by myself

Without you

Now I could scream

Out loud.
