Sneaking round behind my back
So surprised at you
Avoidance and deception
The first of many clues.

Loyalty just doesn’t count
“All is fair in love and war”
Guess that pertains to friendships, too
Sadly, I expected more.

Too much hurt , too much pain
You did all that you could
Don’t have faith they will act
Exactly as they should.

They will take and not look back
Isn’t that the name of the game?
Get what you can, when you can
No one remembers your name.

It’s not …what you have done for me
More like, grab it while you can
Hurt feelings a mere casualty
They will never understand.

It’s best to learn to be alone
Sorry… no one’s home
Lick your wounds, take to the bed
Their hearts are made of stone.

Don’t bang your drum, don’t shout so loud
It will fall upon deaf ears
No one’s really listening
No one there to wipe your tears.

Toughen up, stand on your own
Learn to be all by yourself
No one will be standing there
Stop looking for their help.

Whine, whine…they don’t care
In one ear and out the other
Don’t waste your time reiterating
They’ve moved on, they’re with another.

Someone they relate to
Sorry, that someone isn’t you
Take the hint, take a hike
Get over feeling blue.
