I've taken much more than I can take
all the cheating and lies have got my eyes on the break
take my foot off the gas, no heart to follow through
there's a piece of me striving to believe it's not true
me and you were meant to be, fairy-tale relationship
expressing so much interest right before you went defacing it
replacing with every vice you once renounced
like what happened? you took my heart and bounced
and now you instigate, but properly no one can refute it
'cause every time that you advance I take a chance and look stupid
you run the rolodex of romance, like Russian Roulette
and spin a web of fabrication without breaking a sweat
so I admire it to some extent, but not as a victim
you like to play with all your prizes in the order you picked them
and so I'm sitting, patient, immersed myself in my music
until the day you find your phone and a reason to use it

so what's the plan now? a foreign land has enlightened
another claim but I refrain from thinking senses are heightened
the words are twisted in a way that sounds sincerely suspicious
within a matter of minutes, I catch a hint of the vicious
I wish this was the way we planned it 'fore the hope had disbanded
standing alone on my planet, feeling I'm taken for granted
just like a sad soul, lost in a wave of transition
and every time that I cry out, I doubt that you even listen
are you aware that I'm in tune to your liaisons and flings?
and also sharp to what you harp to them? I hear the same things
and mentally, you can't pretend to be someone that your not
especially when I recall each of the times you've been caught
I fought them off for so long, the memories of your treachery
scaling tallest of peaks, retreats from internal enemies
eventually you made the contact, hope bereaved
as it was evident that once again you'd left me deceived

I sit and stir about the misconceptions I've been devout to
wondering how many things there are I don't know about you
like a horoscope, ambiguous each time that you speak
and when I've opened myself up, you make me beg for a peak
of any kind of human sentiment you carry inside
now I can see you've already been married off to your pride
take me along for the ride, another ploy for affection
so insecure you like to tour allure in every direction
in reality, I've come to see myself an investment
swapped around in your portfolio from every assessment
restless from my own denial of unethical treatment
and the assembly of suitors, that I've been made to compete with
when the truth is exposed, it accompanies blows
such as the fact I interact with someone nobody knows
so it goes, discouraging there's no one above
when at heart, she's eternally immune to my love

esconda detrás de la cara de póker
