"You can say whatever you want about me, but I am the only one that knows the truth"


I’m sick of the games
Tired of lonely nights
Over the excuses
Nothing turned out right

I couldn’t see beyond your mask
There are so many things I want to take back

I want to take back the memories we made under the starry sky
The promises you once made before you began to lie
The times when you kissed me until I couldn’t breathe
The nights when I begged you not to leave
It hurts me to say because this is the hardest thing I will ever do
I whisper goodbye and walk away from you

I’m done believing your lies
Tired of being left behind
Burning the pictures of me and you
Fixing this broken heart of mine

If I could only look beyond your mask
Then I wouldn’t have so many things to take back

I want to take back the first time I laid eyes on you
The feeling I had the first time you said, “I love you.”
The times when I believed you were the only one
The touches that made me become undone
It hurts me to say because this is the hardest thing I will ever do
I whisper goodbye and walk away from you

Why didn’t I see the times when you lied right in front of me?
Why didn’t I leave when I realized you weren’t the one for me?

I want to take back the memories we made under the starry sky
The promises you once made before you began to lie
The times when you kissed me until I couldn’t breathe
The nights when I begged you not to leave
I want to take back the first time I laid eyes on you
The feeling I had the first time you said, “I love you.”
The times when I believed you were the only one
The touches that made me become undone
It hurts me to say because this is the hardest thing I will ever do
I whisper goodbye and walk away from you

There are so many things I want to take back but I will never take back
Saying goodbye to you
