Being Me

Been 8 months today since I watched you walk out
9 months tomorrow of nothing but doubt
It’s been 3 years of learning what love is about
And a lifetime of being me

I know all the reasons, there’s no need to tell
I’m glad that you’re happy, I’m wishing you well
It’s just one more sad ending to a story that fell
From a lifetime of being me

Self-destructive girl
In her self-destructive world

I’ve done this before so don’t act so surprised
I’ll do it again with the change of the tide
Like the heart on my sleeve I’ve got nothing to hide
But a lifetime of being me

Like dolls made of paper all tied in a row
My trail of mistakes comes wherever I go
And the sentence I get for the pain I bestow
Is a lifetime of being me

Self-destructive girl
In her self-destructive world

Tomorrow I’ll face the cold truth once again
When I wake alone while she’s kissing your chin
And I’ll turn to your pillow – confused, but I’ll grin
From a lifetime of being me
A lifetime of being me
