learn from your past to live for the future.


Go away, you're not wanted here
I've told you time and time again
Every time that you draw near
You kill me time and time again
Go work your evil some place else
This girl's gotta make a stand
Go set your spell on someone else
I won't give in to your demand

The first time, I trusted you
The price was hidden from the start
Now, for all the pain you've put me through
Now I know, you only wanted my heart

(Chorus)

Go away, leave me alone
Haven't you hurt me enough?
Get out, out of my home
I've been broken one too many times
By love
Keep your lying voice away, please
Get your caressing hands off of me
Let your poisonous lips leave me in peace
Keep your love, and let me be

Now you're invading in my dreams
A phantom hope from the past
I won't be fooled by your trickery
I'll fight you fully till the last
You show his face to me in my sleep
His words go round and round
I feel his touch all around me
I scream without a sound

The first time, I trusted you
But you were heartless from the start
I've restarted my life, begun anew
And you WON'T tear that apart

(Chorus)

Go away, leave me alone
Haven't I told you enough?
Get out, away, out of my home
I've been scarred one too many times
By love
Keep your lying voice away, please
Keep your caressing hands off of me
Let your pleading lips leave me in peace
Keep your love, and let me be

Please, keep my heart, just let me be

(Bridge)

I've told you that I loved you
So many times before
Now its too late to hate you
I just wanted so much more
I've told him that I loved him
And he's told me the same
But now, I can't be near him
I cannot stand the shame!
You can have my sordid heart-love
You can do what you want to me
But, please, he's had enough!
Keep him away from me!

Please!

Go away, leave us alone
Haven't you hurt us enough?!
Get out, get away from our home
We've had one too many battles
With love
Keep his loving voice away, please
Get his gentle hands away from me
Let his sweet lips leave me in peace
Take his love away from me

Please, you've done it once before
Please, I can't take any more

Let his sweet lips leave me in peace
Keep my heart, just let me be

Just let me be

Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir your blood.

Very well-written.  Passionate and beautiful.  But just a warning...never stop loving.  Even when it hurts so much that you feel your heart is shattered.

No, it didn't happen to me...but it may...I just wrote it because I had the chorus stuck in my head, so I needed something to accompany it.
