I never believed I could do it -
Leaving you stranded in my dust as I sped away
You might actually deserve this fate:
Losing the one thing that you cared about.
You called it payback
I guess you think I'm vindictive,
But I'm not.
This is just the reality of our lives,
The way they played out without us ending up together
Like I used to desperately hoped for;
I suppose it's something like walking away from
A ticking time-bomb that you somehow managed to diffuse
In the final seconds right before everything you knew
Exploded in your face.
Liberating, yet somehow knowing that I hurt you
Doesn't feel so great.
I know I did the right thing. It's what had to happen, and I'm glad it finally did.
