    if I gave u another chance
    or better yet if i gave into ur demands
    i'd be a fool without a conscious
    and to be honest
    im tired of the arguments
    the way ur always startin sh*t
    i tried to love u but u make it hard to feel
    cuz u like to bring up past mistakes and keep feelings concealed
    cuz baby im tired of begging
    standin on one leg and
    praying that you'll stay and
    maybe u'll see im not judgin u, im just relatin
    BUT you try to make me guilty when doin nothing
    then never show appreciation when i do something
    and i know in the back of ur mind u see me comin
    back but not this time, ima keep running

    cuz tomorrow is too late to change what today has brought
    cuz yesterday you had a chance to turn the tables, but you did not
    so why should i sweat the hours n count the seconds?
    Naw, Im gonna leave with the little diginity that I got
    its your fault, you cant rely on what you expect to happen
    I thought you knew that, but I guess time got the best of you and, well you forgot

    If I called you
    better yet, if i emailed you
    I'd fail myself and accordin to u Ive already failed you
    even though Im always checkin on u and tellin you
    how much I miss u, need u, and think well of you
    But when I need ur support and comprehension
    ur not there to fulfil the love and friendship
    we supposedly have and then some
    Im beginnin to think you love the drama
    cuz ur quick to go on about problems, instead of mend 'em
    Always gettin smart and blamin it on MY anger
    then you wonder why I was more comfortable talkin and ****** a stranger
    which is more dangerous trusting someone u just met or someone who always breaks ur soul?
    Regaurdless, I've been livin on the edge of danger
    you try to make me guilty when doin nothing
    then never show appreciation when i do something
    and i know in the back of ur mind u see me comin
    back but not this time, ima keep running

    cuz tomorrow is too late to change what today has brought
    cuz yesterday you had a chance to turn the tables, but you did not
    so why should i sweat the hours n count the seconds?
    Naw, Im gonna leave with the little diginity that I got
    its your fault, you cant rely on what you expect to happen
    I thought you knew that, but I guess time got the best of you and, well you forgot

    But how could you forget that I was the best thing that ever happened to you? Or was I even that?
