Selfishness has never been an option
taken for granted by the ones who deserve the least
thoughts of regret slip in
as I promise not to let this happen again
this didn't have to be the end

I've let this go too far
my selflessness has plagued me with regret
why not just take the life right from my chest

I gave you an inch, I gave you a mile and you threw it right back in my face
how does it feel as you watch me walk away
you reach for me I put you down, you know you're next to nothing
why should I let you hold me down and try to make you something

I guess that trust is nothing more than a word
you'll get what you deserve

Go ahead and tell me that I'm over reacting
I'll make you wish you never asked me for a single thing

I've let this go too far
my selflessness has plagued me with regrets
why not just take the life right from my chest

I gave you an inch, I gave you a mile and you threw it right back in my face
how does it feel as you watch me walk away
too many times I'm left behind by your selfish actions
I know my efforts were in vain
I can't keep up with all these pretty little indiscretions
I'm sick and tired of these games
I gave you an inch, I gave you a mile and you threw it right back in my face
how does it feel as you watch me walk away

After everything I've done for you, this is the thanks I get
the only thing worse than your greed is your fucking ignorance
how can you look me in the eyes and ask me why things have changed
when I'm the one who's stayed the same
stop pointing your fingers and whispering lies
when you're the one who needs me in their life
my goodbye, my goodbye
you pushed as far as I could go
and when it all falls know that you were the cause
you brought this on yourself
