"I'm a survivor. I'm not going to give up. I'm not going to stop. I'm going to work harder."

Oh (Oh-Oh)
No (No-No)
Go (Go-Go)
Now, Now, Now.

Verse One:
Tell me why, yesterday,
I saw you and your new girlfriend.
Holding hands and cuddling,
I was thinkin that it should’ve been you and me.
At home I lay, on my bed.
With the thought of you, in my head.
I don’t want to feel this way, and oh, it’s killing me.

I can’t take a step without me thinkin’ about us movin’ together.
I can’t think about me movin on, if we are not together.
Each breath I inhale is the memory of you.
I don’t like it this way, and ain’t a thing I can do.
My request is as simple as can be, please just stay away from me.

(Leave) Leave me alone (alone, alone, alone, alone, alone,)
Don’t want this pain, no more (no more, no more, no more, no more, no more,)
No more memories of you and I (and I, and I, and I, and I, and I,)
From now on its good-bye.

Verse Two:
My eyes are dry, finally,
Cleaned them up and now I see,
All the destruction ahead of me.
If I don’t let go.
I’ll be staying awake (awake),
While you sleep (you sleep),
Crying constantly (always),
While you’re at peace.
But sometimes I feel like…

Pre-Chorus, Chorus

(So please spare me)
If I see you walking in the hallways (hallways),
Don’t smile at me, boy,
If you’re walking by with your new girlfriend (girlfriend),
Don’t meet your eyes with mine,
Cause I get so weak in the knees,
I can hardly breathe,
When I see you with her,
And it’s supposed to be me.
Get your memory out of my mind,
If you’re not here with me.
