"Giving up is not a part of my vocabulary."
"Don't let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game."
"Truth be told I miss ya, truth be told I'm lying."

You took me for granted,
and I can no longer stand it.
This is my life,
and it's my respect that I demand,
and it's my life now that I will command.
I will no longer let you control me,
so you better listen up.
I gave up everything just for you,
stood by your side, completely devoted;
Grateful all the way?
Nope, this is just how I get repaid.
Being a mess,
always wanting to come back to you,
and I haven't heard not once,
that you appreciate me-
I deserve respect.
I did my absolute best to give you nothing less than perfectness.
And I know if I keep this up
I will have nothing left,
but you know what you've done
so there is no reason to go into depth.
You neglected me,
and sure did me a favor,
my heart is finally free.
