You treat me like a pawn
Is that what I am?
I have nothing left inside
and you don't give a damn
You keep me in check with a look
My move is stalled
The game reads like an open book
I've been positioned to fall

Tell me how you can say that you love me
when the only thing you love is control?
Tell me how I can stay when you hurt me,
when the things that you say take their toll?

[CHORUS] I need to see the end of you controlling me and haunting me
I want to see what I can do away from here, away from you
I need to make my last move, get out of here and see it through
I'll be free without your noose and not a pawn for you to use

I'm waiting patiently
for a chance to get out of this trap
When the hold that you have
loosens its grip from my life
I've hesitated far too long
and I'm afraid to be alone
I'm afraid that when I break away,
I'll be lost without a home

Tell me how you can say that you love me
when the only thing you love is control?
Tell me how I can play when you beat me,
when the moves that you make strip my soul?

[CHORUS]

I'm going down that lonely road
I have to get out on my own
I hope the place that my path ends
is a place that I've never been

I'm going down that lonely road
I have to get out on my own
I hope the place that my path ends
is a place that I've never been
(In my life I've made mistakes,
and now I'm drowning in their wake
Checkmate doesn't mean I'm through:
only that I'm through with you)
(x2)

The sting of your words still burns me
The scar of emotion is too deep to heal
Your move has become failed strategy
as the prison that you built burns down
[CHORUS]
