You say I’m no good.
You hurt me with your lies.
They all tell me to stay away.
To forget you.
Three more years.
Then I’ll be away from you.
Not for good.
But good for me.
And I really can’t understand why I still care about you.
Or why I still try to please you.
I guess it’s just my daughterly obligation or something.
But that doesn’t make it right.
It’s just gone too far.
I’ve had enough.
I’m sorry, but you’ve lost me.
