This House Is Not A Home *Re*

Everyday it was the same old thing
Being held down with those chains
Somehow love turned me into your slave
What I did wasnít ever good enough
How I lived was all so wrong
You kept on singing the same old song
But what did you care?
Did I not spoil you enough, princess?!
 
The screaming
The fighting
Wakes up the ghost inside these walls
Your sneaking
With excuses
Became oh so confusing
No!, this house is not a home

 
Feeling weak from the knife in my back
Spreading your legs to feed your greed
Once I leave they will all see
That burning scarlet letter upon your face
Still you had the guts to say I was the one
The one that let this all fall apart
Like itís my fault that youíre a spineless creature
Didnít have the courage to just get up and leave
Only felt it right to string me along!
 
The screaming
The fighting
Wakes up the ghost inside these walls
Your sneaking
With excuses
Became oh so confusing
No!, this house is not a home
 
I remember days when I was happy
(Iíll get it back!, Iíll get it back!)
I remember the stars out, and the sun shining
(Iíll get it back!, Iíll get it back!)
No more will I let anyone crush my character away
(I stand tall to get it all back)

 
Yeah I know we had some good times
Still know there is a piece of me that cares
But all the lies made me hate you
Turned your love into a unforgivable monster
I know this can only end in two ways
With the death of me, or the death of you
So come a little bit closer baby
Kick off your shoes, drink some wine
And count back from ten
Then you will never see me again
