Dead

Get this through your head
It is finished
It is dead
Like the words that you said 
They're all burned 

Dust and ashes.
No return.


"I hate you;
Don't leave me."
Those were the words you said
When you weren't speaking.
There on the floor of 
Our love lay dead,
Like a corpse, 
But of course you could not admit 
That it was over,
That this is it.

Do you think I'm stupid?
Do you think that 
I'd come back for more?
Think again.
What would I 
Be returning for?

Just another beating?
Just one more time to hear 
That I am wrong?
Just to prove that 
My love 
   is strong?

It's strong.
Like a river.
Stronger than 
The beatings and the lies
But that don't mean
I'll come on back 
Just so you can try
To convince me 
To stay 
To be the only one
Who won't leave you, 
For all 
The harm that you have done.


Get this through your head
It is finished
It is dead
Like the words that you said 
They're all burned 

Dust and ashes.
No return.
