Step aside, I’m moving out
I won’t get in your way
I’m tired of broken promises
And everything you say.

Lies all lies, nothing more
But empty hollow words
I can’t make any sense of it
It’s all just too absurd.

All the while, you always knew
You ‘d leave me in the end
The word “forever” wasn’t true
It was nothing but pretend.

Stepping stones that’s what we are
Those you’ve left behind
Just a trail of broken hearts
It happens every time.

Candlelight and caviar
Champagne and sweet romance
You held me close in your arms
Together we slow danced.

But boredom, simple conquest
Love of money, easily blamed
Doesn’t matter what I feel
In the end, it’s just a game.
