(you) *******, you(h)eartbreaking familiar stranger take it all back (u)nset ou(r) da(t)e and senti(me)nts (take it all back)
My evening star stopped shining bright It went off course, into the dark night I saw it not, for it was.. perhaps a year Or so it appeared to a brooding mind I had nurtured it true, for my sore eyes Every ev'ning, its twinkle w'd bring me Delight; but off it went, into the black Never to soothe my eternal sore eyes It left me stranded, who w'd have seen The end to our rendezvous, I c'd never Foresee_ it had been pure intimacy of A different kind; why then retire into The dark night, why resign dear, w'out A single sigh ! A shining star, my wont Eternal companion of the forever sky? Alas ! It flickered bright then died out.
This is a letter On what you did to me How much of me you claimed A lifetime of things That nobody deserves That I got anyway
I'd cast you out If I really thought you'd go But you won't And I'm stuck with you At least now I know That this is not my fault I don't have to go with you You don't own A sliver of my soul
You are nothing compared to me To my blinding vibrancy I am so much more That what you -- I -- made me out to be But at the end of the day You aren't a part of me We share the same space But I will always be human That's something you'll never be
Truth be told I don't owe you anything The hatred you grew in me I've pulled out like weeds If a lifetime of maintenance is what I need Then I will grow my own garden In place of what you made
Because I am beautiful I am worthy I will not live to die There won't be one more wasted night Trying to strangle out my life I am so much more than you You will never come that close To winning again I promise you that
So I'll go to the beach In that skimpy bikini While you thrash and writhe In the back of my mind Because every second proving you wrong Is a second more of freedom
And I'll do what I want I'll wear a dress to prom Ask out that pretty girl Face you head on In the back of a car With tears streaming down my face Screaming to myself That I am worth it I am strong I am more than you ever thought I was
This is a letter to you Spelling out The end of your reign The gates have burned down I'm gone now
I owe it to myself to win this one, and I'll do it, over and over again.
If I don’t let it out soon All my troubles and worries All my trials and tribulations If I can’t open up my mouth soon I will wither I will shrivel up like a beautiful rose That’s been depleted of its nutrients I shed my last tear and haven’t watered myself since If I don’t let it out soon I will be still addicted to something That isn’t even good for me Addicted to someone That isn’t even good for me But is everything I could ever need But if that’s so Then why am I still withering? If I can’t open my mouth soon I will never be able to change “I just want happiness” Is all I have to say How can I have that when I won’t let myself Trapping myself in this box Was not intended Now I’m too comfortable In a place I don’t even want Bounded Cursed Stuck All things that I feel every second of the day So If I don’t let it out soon I’m going to be just like you And that doesn’t mean you’re a bad person But I can’t see myself being happy like this anymore I love you so much I never would’ve thought leaving you would be the only way to break free From everything holding me back So If I can’t open my mouth soon I’ll just be the next stereotypical black female And I can’t have that
