Manipulation (At Best)

I keep coming back to you

even after all the shit you've put me through

I try to stay away and guard myself

but I can't, and I won't

you're poisonous to my health

now things get worse

you're lying, you see

everything you said to me

wasn't the truth

-now we're both blue.

but one of us couldn't handle it

and slowly faded away bit by bit

yesterday you were everything to me

now you're just another face among many

it hurts to listen to your favorite song

I can't sing along since you've gone

I turn away from everything

I cannot stand to see your face

all I see is you and your disgrace

covering every inch of you

but it's true

I'm still not over you
