They said life would be fun, just give it a chance,
But now I'm just standing here yea I don't know the dance.
Things go from bad to worse but never get better,
I'm to the point I don't want to open the letter.
Welcome to hell, no this is just life,
If pain is my prison I'm cutting out with this knife.
I don't know when I got this way,
I don't know what to say,
Yea why does my life feel like one bad day?
People tell me to die I think I may,
I'm tired man I just want to go away.
Why are people like this why do we do this crap?
One more person uses me I swear I'm going to snap.
You lie to my face you say you're there for me,
Soon as you don't need me guess where you'll be?
People keep you around as long as they need you,
Well guess what, I'm human too.
I'm tired of the frauds, tired of the fakes,
You turn around and it's just another snake.
Say what you want I'm done carin',
Next time you want help don't look for my helpin'.

You said you were there,
Said you cared,
Now you only look at me with a glare.
That's ok, time to move on,
Don't want to talk to me, just listen to my song.

People ask me why I'm alone,
I'm just tired of my heart getting crushed like stone.
I trusted people I gave them a chance,
They took it stabbed me right in the back.
You ever heard that life's a dance?
Then we're all just dancing into black.
Got people who rather lie then stay,
Use you when they need you then just walk away.
This is why I'm done believing what people say,
I just want to live, fight another day.
Is that a crime, well to bad if it is,
I'm trying to keep from going amiss.
This type of life isn't fun,
Right now I wish it were done,
I go to bed not knowing if I'll see another sun.
This life, yea it's far from fair,
I just want to see tomorrow, living on a prayer.
