The Burn

So you turned your heart off with just one turn.
It's funny because we played with fire but only i felt the burn.
So how did you get to be so high.
Why are you leaving me with just a bottle of whiskey.
I thought we had love figured out.
But now i've cried so much i could fix a drought.
Oh i wish we had never stopped.
I wish your hands had gripped me tighter.
You made the mistake of letting go.
I just sat and watched you leave.
It's just me, myself, and i.
Sooner or later they will even leave.
So before i am left dying alone.
I found my strength you would be proud.
I finally grew that famous back bone.
So now that your gone.
I have dyed my hair.
Came close to changing my name.
I dn't want you to recognize me.
Because you would die.
I hate your guts, your old news and i'm a star.
That keeps lighting up his night.
I am the fly on the wall.
I am overlooking you.
I am a gust of wind.
I am his and not yours.
But it took me so long to realize your nothing to me.
I used to be numb not going to lie.
Now i watch you sit in a bar and wait for your turn to die.
