Burned

  • I pray the day you will never end
    You said you'd call me
    If you change your mind
    And wanted to go home

    And I felt this coming like a storm
    And then the rain began to pour
    I knew I'd fall a sleep alone

    And as much as I wish I could be by your side
    I know I can't erase what you've done
    And the times that I've tried
    And the lies you've denied
    I knew there is no turning back now

    I don't want this to hurt
    I already have my scars in the words
    You say you just run me apart
    Tables have turned
    So now you've got my heart
    And it hurts cause it's still on fire

    And now I cry
    Cause there's nothing left but a "Goodbye"
    Everything just feels like one big lie
    And in time you'll find
    That if you play with fire
    You'll always get burned

    I know I was the only one
    Who heard the wrong things
    You had done behind you
    So you could start again

    And I now sometimes I made it hard
    But I swear I never would have thought
    That you could
    Just move on like that

    And as much as I wish I could be by your side
    I know I can't erase what you've done
    And the times that I've tried
    And the lies you've denied
    I knew there is no turning back now

    I don't want this to hurt
    I already have my scars in the words
    You say you just run me apart
    Tables have turned
    So now you've got my heart
    And it hurts cause it's still on fire

    And now I cry
    Cause there's nothing left but a "Goodbye"
    Everything just feels like one big lie
    And in time you'll find
    That if you play with fire
    You'll always get burned

    And now all the words
    You couldn't bring yourself to say
    Are more clearer then ever

    I'm not gonna listen anymore
    If she wants to take you let her

    Let her know in your chest is my heart
    Don't forget I'm still here
    I'm alive
    I am burned but I'll survive

    I felt this coming like a storm
    And then the rain began to pour
    I knew you weren't sleeping aloneWriter/s: ALYSSA REID
