If you chase two rabbits, you will lose them both.

Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light.

I’m aware that you destroyed me

My heart, my mind, my soul

Took away my smile

Yet I’m the one in control

 

Now I’m the one in control

Get up off your knees, stop begging for me

Oh I’m the one in control

I can make you hurt like never before

Because I’m the one in control now

And it’s easier to hate you

Than say goodbye

 

You broke me down until I cried

I turned the sorrow into anger

It was easier to hate you

Than admit I had died

They say forgive and forget

I guess I can’t do either

You’ll regret all that you did

You’ve only stoked a raging fire

 

Now I’m the one in control

Get up off your knees, stop begging for me

Oh I’m the one in control

I can make you hurt like never before

Because I’m the one in control now

And it’s easier to hate you

Than say goodbye

 

Months have passed and I’m moving on

Why aren’t you yet gone?

You keep telling me you won

I’m the one with power

I hold you under my thumb

As you will come to see

I won’t abuse it like you did

It’s called human decency

 

Now I’m the one in control

Get up off your knees, stop begging for me

Oh I’m the one in control

I can make you hurt like never before

Because I’m the one in control now

And it’s easier to hate you

Than say goodbye

 

You took away my laughter

My happiness, my pride

But now can’t you see?

The fire’s back in my eyes
