lyrics

Step by step I walk away

From the foolish games you play

Step by step I walk away

Took so long to find the strength

To say it is what it is, I’m gone

Took so long to find the strength

Now I’m sitting here wondering

Why do you do the things you do?

Why do I stay?

Why you wanna hurt me baby?

You’re breaking down my walls and maybe

I’m wasting away

I’m fading in vain

My heart is in pain

Why you wanna hurt me baby?

I finally woke up

I knew it wasn’t right that I had faith in you

To live up to your promises to follow though

To be a changed man

The man of my dreams

But I can’t believe it took me this damn long

To pack up and leave, grieve, bleed over you

Over you

Why can’t you see all the hurt you put me through?

Can’t play these games anymore

Why you wanna hurt me baby?

You’re breaking down my walls and maybe

I’m wasting away

I’m fading in vain

My heart is in pain

Why you wanna hurt me baby?

Why can’t you see?

That all you do is hurt me baby

Can’t play these games

You’re breaking down my walls and maybe

I’m wasting away

I’m fading in vain

My heart is in pain

Why you wanna hurt me baby?
