Don’t look to me for comfort
To catch you when you  fall
Don’t try and say you’re sorry
Don’t contact me …. don’t call.

Keep your distance …. back away
Don’t look at me that way
Keep your thoughts to yourself
There’s nothing left to say. 

You played me …. then you walked away
Left me feeling so ashamed
Said that you were done with me
And that I  was to blame.

Nothing that I did or said
Was going to change your mind
You walked out …. no remorse
I was left behind.

I begged you for a second chance
But you began to laugh
Said that there was someone else
You’d found your better half.

Don’t come around …. don’t text me
Lose my number …. leave me alone
Don’t think I’ll be here waiting
If you decide to come back home.

Locks are changed …. no trace of you
I’m better off alone.
Have to get my head on straight
It’s time …. time to move on.
