    So you say you’re up contemplating
    on the latest way your heart is breaking
    wondering how to make it right,
    smoking cigarettes at night,
    well I say, you need to get a grip,
    some things ain’t even worth the trip,
    it might be time to rewrite to script,
    I’m just giving you some tips,

    See I’ve been down those roads,
    covered in the dust of
    “maybe if I had been more giving”
    but I gave and I gave
    until none of me could be save….
    and that’s no way to be livin’
    self-sacrificing
    until there’s no sufficing
    they’ll want more and more
    (so they walk out the door)
    seeking simple satisfaction
    in some other….well, let’s not go there
    but while you’re wasting time
    know that you’re farthest from their mind,
    inwardly degrading yourself
    so that you can find
    some way to justify their sorry behind?

    makes no sense,
    so I say squash the suspense
    of nights wondering
    “will they return?”
    “will the fire still burn?”
    will they ever yearn for you
    like you do for them,
    sitting,
    waiting,
    malignantly debating,
    stating the lies they’ve weakly justified,
    it’s not worth it,
    and it’s going to break you down after awhile,
    into
    the depressed impression
    of a once vibrant soul
    don’t let it happen, just let it go chile’
