"It's better to burn out than to fade away..." -Kurt Cobain

(Chorus opens up)
It felt so good to push you away,
It was right to watch you float away.
Thank God I found my sense that day,
Now I feel so awake.

(Verse 1)
Why did you think you could change me?
You always continued to try.
I believed when you said you loved me,
But now I know that you always lied.

(Verse 2)
What excuse did you tell yourself
To make all this justified?
I guess you never saw it coming,
And now I'm ready to say goodbye.

-Repeat Chorus-

(Verse 3)
Walking away I can finally breathe,
Without you I can finally know
That you were always pushing me down,
A life with you is a life of sorrow.

(Verse 4)
I don't care if you get mad,
Because now your true colors show.
I won't destroy my life for you.
You always wanted to fall below.

-Repeat Chorus-

When I close my eyes at night,
I know my conscience will be clear.
You won't tear my heart apart again.,
You won't claim another tear.

-Repeat Chorus 2x-

A song written about all the people in my past who have tried to change me for the worst and keep trying to pull me down. And those who have broke my heart.
