lyrics

I fought back the tears
As you put your arm around me
I hate the way you make me feel
but I know your words as truth
no one else could ever love me
I'm nothing without you

Every time you’d walk away
You’d let me fall
and feeling so low
back to you I’d crawl
never learned to stand alone
I should have known better
I should have seen
exactly who you were
but at just 19
I couldn’t
I wouldn’t
and you wouldn’t let me

it takes two to hurt
one to hit and one to let him
I met your knives with smiles
your words with quiet pain
over and over,
repeated lies
in time,
I believe they’re true
when spoken from a lovers lips
what else was I to do

it takes two to hurt
one to hit and one to let him
but I’m not listening anymore
I’m done with your abuse
you may have won the battles
but now I win the war
get in one last lie
I’m walking out the door
