Come and take a stroll with me
Listen as I tell you a story from one of my many chapters of my so called life

It all began when the laws of the streets became a part of me and it doesn’t matter how far I run the pain of these cold and lonely streets are never far behind
And its funny to think that you now think that you can just open your arms once again and have me fall into them and save me from all your beautiful spoken lies of how you’ll always love me

Do you really believe that I can be fooled once again
Do you honestly believe that just because you say it that this makes all the darkness of unwanted memories that I keep locked away just disappear

Please don’t make me laugh and think again for there was a time when I did believe in all your words
Believe that they were true when every thing made sense when it came to me and you
But that was another life time ago and now I see the real you so you can stop pretending that you even do care
That you care of how I’m drowning inside a sea of tears that I’ve my heart bare when she looks back and remembers of how naive I was to believe that you’d always be there

For as I stand before you now I want to make it perfectly clear that only words that I’ll ever believe from you are the ones you don’t say
The only thing I want from you is for you to be honest with me for once if that’s even possible and tell me why

When I truly loved you
Why did you take my love
My trust to a place I’d never hope to fine
You can’t answer that huh
That’s okay cause it doesn’t matter anymore
For those painful scars that you’ve created inside my heart
My soul
My mind are slowly healing and this my not mean any thing to you but to me its every thing
Since now 

when I look at you don’t see the person that I once upon a time ago hopelessly truly loved
I only see some one that will never again have the power to hurt me
For this day forward there’s nothing that you can say nor do that can hurt me
Cause from this day and beyond I’ll always see you for what you truly are
