Done With You

Well, there was a time
She felt beautiful
Her refection was flawless and
all her own

And there was a time
she wasn't afraid
to be different and make
dumb mistakes

That's when you got to her
Took her mind and her spirit
And she would cry at night
No one could hear it

Once upon a time,
nobody else mattered
She knew what she wanted
How could she have known?

How to block out the darkness
Keep out the bad stuff
Stay true to herself
Not become heartless

Instead she did what
she was supposed to
Dressed to impress you
Did what you told her to

Now she's done with you
She is done with you

Now, there was a time
he felt so strong
He took you on and
didn't force his smile

But then this one time
it all became too much
He gave into the demons
What had he done?

I guess you got to him
Took his mind and his spirit
He would die inside
No one would could see it

Once upon a time,
nobody else mattered
He knew what he wanted
He had no idea

How to block out the darkness
Keep out the bad stuff
Stay true to himself
Not become heartless

Instead he did what
he was supposed to
Dressed to impress you
Did what you told him to

Now he's done with you
He is done with you

You got to us
Took our minds and spirits
We knew we would be judged
So we kept quiet

You don't know what it's like
To have to lock ourselves inside
Until there's nothing left to hide…

So we
Block out the darkness
Keep out the bad stuff
Stay true to ourselves
Won't become heartless

Instead of doing
What we're "supposed" to
Try something brand new
We will do what we want to

'Cause we're done with you
We are done with you

Once upon a time,
nobody else mattered
We knew that what we wanted
Wasn't to be you
