You stole my sadness and made me happy

You made me feel as if your word revolved around me

I don’t open my heart, I don’t let them in

But you were my everything

You were my first, my last, my whole world

You took away my demons in a whirl

But you stole my happiness and left me nothing

You made me realize that all along you were bluffing

 

So don’t be surprised when I walk away

I’m done forgiving every lie that you say

Don’t be surprised when I stop saying your name

I’m done with you and your cruel games

Don’t be surprised when I break down

My tears aren’t the only things crashing all around

Don’t be surprised if we never again meet

Because I’m done just sitting here kissing your feet

And don’t be surprised if I stop saying I love you

Because you broke me, oh, you broke me in two

 

You shattered my heart, I hit the ground hard

But I still loved you with every broken shard

You hurt me every day and you never cared

And when you wanted me, you expected me to be there

 

So don’t be surprised when I walk away

I’m done forgiving every lie that you say

Don’t be surprised if I stop saying your name

I’m done with you and your cruel games

Don’t be surprised when I break down

My tears aren’t the only things crashing all around

Don’t be surprised if we never again meet

Because I’m done just sitting here kissing your feet

And don’t be surprised if I stop saying I love you

Because you broke me, oh, you broke me in two

You broke me, but I’ll break you too
