Lyrics: A. Hoff
Music: J. Bromm

You’ll never know shame ‘til you’ve been in my shoes
Watching as your life passes by, letting yourself be abused
You’ll never know pain ‘til your love is removed
Failing to grasp the truth that he’s just using you
No man is an island, but he’s not a man
He’s just a shell of a human acting as weak as a lamb
He isolates himself by playing with my pride
His heart’s encased in glass
He can’t be bothered to take a chance

And I’m tired, I’m tired of waiting for him to find
The girl he uses the most is the first on his mind
And I’m tired, I’m tired of wasting my time
Imagining a whole life that will never be his and mind

How do I, how do I
How do I walk away
I’ve been addicted so long, I don’t know how to escape
How do I, how do I
How do I face the day
Knowing all that I did just to make him stay
With me, with me
It was an honest mistake
I thought he was somebody else
Someone who cared
For me, for me
You know I have to break free
From the lies that he breathes
That make me make-believe

He’ll never know love if he can’t let it in
I’m the best woman he’ll have, but all he does is pretend
And I’m scared he’s broken me and I can’t believe
I still lose all control when he looks at me
I’ll never know truth ‘til I walk away
I’ve been pretending too long that we’re meant to be
And I can’t be the victim of his mistakes
Loving him took all I had, but he can’t even take the chance

And I’m tired, I’m tired of waiting for him to find
The girl he uses the most is the first on his mind
And I’m tired, I’m tired of wasting my time
Imagining a whole life that will never be his and mine

How do I, how do I
How do I walk away
I’ve been addicted so long, I don’t know how to escape
How do I, how do I
How do I face the day
Knowing all that I did just to make him stay
With me, with me
It was an honest mistake
I thought he was somebody else
Someone who cared
For me, for me
You know I have to break free
From the lies that he breathes
That make me make-believe
