I remember my mum telling me that money doesn’t grow on trees but I’ve had this great idea To write one song about you every time you contact me I’ll sell them as a compilation I would easily make a million selling them to people who you know I’ll write one song about you every time you contact me I just want you to go Leave me and my family alone I remember my mum warning me to stay away from you I learned the truth when I was just a kid She was so right about you I wish I took my mum’s advice. I wish I never met you Manipulating, narcissistic, psychopathic, egocentric Causing trouble’s always been your thing She was so right about you Don’t make me write a hundred songs I just want you to go Leave me and my family alone I just want you to go Leave me and my family alone Leave me and my family alone Leave me and my family alone

A simple song I hope you download on your phone and you hear these words in the evening as you walk alone With every step you take you’re counting your mistakes You could walk for miles I look to brighter days with our separate ways and I know it’s for the best That scowl upon your face You’re the poster child for sulking and selfishness And my dreams came true on the day you left Your heart is cold Your only friends are on your phone and you feel this truth in the evening as you walk alone With every step you take you’re counting your mistakes You could walk for miles I look to brighter days with our separate ways and I know it’s for the best That scowl upon your face You’re the poster child for sulking and selfishness And my dreams came true on the day you left With every step you take Had to got to got to keep it together Have to got to got end it to be free forever With every step you take Had to got to got to keep it together Have to got to got end it to be free forever With every step you take Had to got to got to keep it together You’re counting your mistakes Have got to end it to be free forever This is your anthem You could walk for miles I look to brighter days with our separate ways and I know it’s for the best That scowl upon your face You’re the poster child for sulking and selfishness And my dreams came true My dreams came true My dreams came true on the day you left The time has come, commence the detox Reclaim my life again Commence the detox The time has come commence the detox Reclaim my life again My dreams came true the day you My dreams came true the day you My dreams came true the day you My dreams came true the day you

“I will never leave you” are words I used to mean We were once like family with ocean in between But now everything’s changed We are estranged cause I opened my eyes Don’t call me again I long to forget your name You will not believe me but I told you everything You and your delusions and all the stress you bring You love everyday that things go your way Control is your vice Don’t call me again I long to forget your name I can feel the burn of burden but I can feel the healing begin I can feel the tide is turning It’s like a wall that I’m scaling and I have no fear at all I have no fear at all Two years in a nightmare was my reality The trouble and the toil now distant memory Now the words that I said have sunk in your head Your hope falls to the ground Don’t call me again I long to forget your name I can feel the burn of burden but I can feel the healing begin I can feel the tide is turning It’s like a wall that I’m scaling and I have no fear at all I have no fear at all I can feel the burn of burden but I can feel the healing begin I can feel the tide is turning I can feel the burn of burden but I can feel the healing begin I can feel the tide is turning It’s like a wall that I’m scaling and I have no fear at all Oh, I have no fear at all I can feel the burn I can feel the burn of burden I can feel the tide is turning I can feel the burn I can feel the burn of burden I can feel the tide is turning I long to forget your name

Marvel the divide with Anger by your side Your desperate call for help but you can’t save yourself Caution the steep drop of between with a grudge and a tank of gasoline Please don’t get burnt from the flames of your bridges burnt Set fire and walk away Do not return, drawn by the flames Please don’t get burnt from the flames of your bridges burnt You will never change and Anger stay the same Few left care to help You did this to yourself Caution the steep drop of between with a grudge and a tank of gasoline Please don’t get burnt from the flames of your bridges burnt Set fire and walk away Do not return, drawn by the flames Please don’t get burnt from the flames of your bridges burnt If in doubt take the matches out and strike the first few Erase the memories Replace the other you knew for the sake of healing you Please don’t get burnt Please don’t get burnt Please don’t get burnt (caution the steep drop of between) Please don’t get burnt (caution the steep drop of between) Please don’t get burnt from the flames of your bridges burnt Set fire and walk away Do not return, drawn by the flames Please don’t get burnt from the flames of your bridges burnt Please don’t get burnt from the flames of your bridges burnt Set fire and walk away Do not return, drawn by the flames Please don’t get burnt from the flames of your bridges burnt (caution the steep drop of between) (caution the steep drop of between) (caution the steep drop of between) Please don’t get burnt from the flames of your bridges burnt

Two years in a nightmare was my reality The trouble and the toil now distant memory Now the words that I said have sunk in your head Your hope falls to the ground Don’t call me again I long to forget your name I can feel the burn of burden but I can feel the healing begin I can feel the tide is turning It’s like a wall that I’m scaling and I have no fear at all Ugh! I will never miss you or give you sympathy I wish you well in ernest but stay away from me Greedy, unfair and unselfaware Your friends are too nice Don’t call me again I long to forget your name I can feel the burn of burden but I can feel the healing begin I can feel the tide is turning It’s like a wall that I’m scaling and I have no fear at all I have no fear at all I have no fear at all I have no fear at all
