Don't patronise me with your justifications
Resuscitation won't work on me again
It's a waste of breath
Your "mouth-to-mouth" has drowned me
And I don't want to be dragged up for more
Do not come to me pleading for absolution
I have watched your treachery enough times to know
That the die has been cast and I see your game
Please just live your life
Act the parts
Deal the pain

You have made your choice and this is mine
In the light of day things take on a different hue
It is you who have lost me, not I you
Better to have happened now than further down the line
You may talk of friendship
But I have seen your soul
And though I may be many things I am not a fool

I've tried to hold the middle ground, not concede the field
Given the respect I thought that you deserved
Yet the little scene played out in front of me
Has bared a part of you I hoped not to exist
When I look at you now I see you for what you are
I know your true worth
And no, I won't be buying
You've shown your true colours and they're not ones I like
And not ones I would want a friend to wear

You have made your choice and this is mine
In the light of day things take on a different hue
It is you who have lost me, not I you
Better to have happened now than further down the line
You may talk of friendship
But I have seen your soul
And though I may be many things I am not a fool

Vanity and malice cloaked by a beauteous frame
Turmoil mounts inside me at the sound of your name
There can be no peace for me while you are in my sight
To see you again would be an act of self-aimed spite
Though with the wish to see you my heart may often swell
From pain we learn avoidance and you have taught me well
A lesson in trust you have given that I will never forget
For this at least I am truly always in your debt

You have made your choice and this is mine
In the light of day things take on a different hue
It is you who have lost me, not I you
Better to have happened now than further down the line
You may talk of friendship
But I have seen your soul
And though I may be many things I am not a fool

You've shown your colours
Your true colours
Your colours revealed
