  • This is not your playground, I'm not here for you to shoot me down
    Praying on my weakness, even when you're not around
    Nothing lasts forever but you're wrapped around my DNA
    And I'm hiding in the corner, the wounded kid I was
    Like it was yesterday, like nothing's changed

    All that you've done, you see
    Ever so quietly comes creeping back up on me
    Haunting me, goading me, why can't you let go of me?
    I don't have the patience anymore

    That's not me, I won't be the version of me (me)
    The one you think you're comfortable with (me)
    The one you think you had your fun with
    If I can't trust myself, why should I trust anyone else?

    All that you've done, you see
    Ever so quietly comes creeping back up on me
    Haunting me, goading me, why can't you let go of me?
    I don't have the patience anymore

    That's not me, I won't be the version of me (me)
    The one you think you're comfortable with (me)
    The one you think you had your fun with (me)
    That's not me, not me
    I won't be the version of me (me)
    The one you think you're comfortable with (me)
    The one you think you had your fun with
    If I can't trust myself, why should I trust anyone else? Writer/s: MELANIE CHISHOLM, NICHOLAS WILLIAM ATKINSON, THOMAS BRUCE WILDING
