You were sitting there wishing you were someone different
somewhere else
Didn't you think that might hurt me, because it did
You were sitting there pulling out every single strand of your hair
as I stared at the ceiling from the floor

Everything that I have left was meant for you

You were trying everything you could to try to get under my skin
Well my skin goes miles deep, so try again
I don't know who you've been seeing but it sure as hell's never been me
Because I'm not the leaving type, not this time
Yell at me, call me a bastard and scream like a banshee
If that's what it takes for us to talk it out, call me what you will
You've been living like a secret keeping all your trappings stowed
away inside, like you were something you had to hide
Not this time

Everything that I have left was meant for you

He was a man of wanton lechery
And his corruption settled down in your heart, unseen and unheard
And now his puppet strings make you speak his wickedness to me

You were everything I thought I wanted but you let me down
It's sad to think that though we stayed in the same home
I was still alone, left with nothing but the songs I sang
"It takes awhile to grow anything"
And now I've got someone that you could never be
I see you're nothing but a broken version of
She who never takes my love as nothing more than amnesty
My one regret is that it took me so long to leave
