You Say

You say it's hard loving me.

You say you've wasted

A lifetime trying to make me see

Everything I am not

The things I can't be.

You say I've changed so much.

That I am not the man you loved,

I am a shell of who I was.

I see a darkness over me.

I have to agree.

I am not the man I used to be.

I just look at you and resign,

You're right.

You've wasted a lifetime

For sure,

And I ain't got no life in me anymore.

It's my life that's gone,

My spark faded so long ago.

You point your fingers at me

But I gave you everything


You just took and took and took.

And now that I ain't got nothing left.

You're just walking out that door

Leave me crying on my floor.

Leave me lifeless on my floor.

I ain't your problem anymore.
