When will you open up your mind? When will you let me see inside of it You know I'd die for it Cause I can't believe that you would do this to me It's not like you to tear it all to the ground I can't believe that you would do this to me I won't let you tear it all to the ground Something simple, if it was simple Then I'd have it all figured out by now When will I know Do you know how hard it was for me to admit my faults Was I wrong for wanting to show you who I am, yeah I am clearly not the same person that I was back then And now I know It was you, wasn't me, and you're caught in between Present time and all past memories I'm finally learning that I don't need to Discover what's inside you It's safe to say I've made up my mind Cause you're so naive And everything about you makes me Makes me wanna run but maybe I'll stand my ground this time around Cause I found no sanity in keeping you in my life I found no sanity in keeping you around It was you, wasn't me, and you're caught in between Present time and all past memories I'm finally learning that I don't need to Discover what's inside you It's safe to say I've made up my mind Cause you're so naive And everything about you makes me Makes me wanna run but maybe I'll stand my ground this time around I'll stand my ground I'll stand my ground It was you, wasn't me

You all have treated me so well It's getting harder to walk away Well I've tried to find a reason to stay But these fake expressions on my face are wearing out It wears me out, but don't get me wrong This place built me, but now it's time to break free So guilty, but I know it's the right choice in the end 'Cause this isn't a place of permanence 'Cause I'm simply passing through You can try to make me stay But there's nothing you can do, because In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good I won't drag you down anymore In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good I'm finally moving on But I'm thinking That I will miss this Am I over-exaggerating again Is this just blown out of proportion Well you all have treated me so well But was it for me, or was it for you I think that I see the truth That I was only being used What else is new, I'll carry on like I always do Because pretty soon, you won't see my face again 'Cause this isn't a place of permanence 'Cause I'm simply passing through You can try to make me stay But there's nothing you can do, because In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good I won't drag you down anymore In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good I'm finally moving on But I'm thinking That I might miss this Sometimes in our lives we need to prioritize Make change, rearrange everything that's in the way Sometimes in our lives we need to prioritize Make change, rearrange everything that's in the way 'Cause this isn't a place of permanence 'Cause I'm simply passing through You can try to make me stay But there's nothing you can do, because In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good I won't drag you down anymore In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good I'm finally moving on But I'm thinking That I won't miss this

I really should have seen this coming From day one you were always dragging behind Believe me, I offered sympathy, we were on the same side But I won't lie, I've waited for this day to come Cause it's about time you realize You crave it, you feel it, you don't know what you want I caught you, red handed, you might as well give up Why did you rip it to shreds What if I drowned in all the doubt you built inside my head I should have listened, should have paid attention But I couldn't stand to watch you go I thought I knew you but you proved me wrong You never listen to me anyway Next time I won't catch you when you fall But I can't lie, I've waited for this day to arrive Cause in my eyes it's just not worth it anymore You crave it, you feel it, you don't know what you want I'm getting impatient, when will you give this up Give it up Why did you rip it to shreds What if I drowned in all the doubt you built inside my head I should have listened, should have paid attention But I couldn't stand to watch you go I thought I knew you but you proved me wrong I didn't want it to end this way You're leaving me with no choice I didn't want it to end this way You're leaving me with no choice And now we're moving forward I'm gonna miss you my friend I can't hold on much longer It's nice to know you my friend I didn't want it to end this way I didn't want it to end this way You need to change

It's like you're blind You need to open up your eyes And realize that there's something bigger outside these four walls You live a life so small As if you don't even care at all about what the future brings Can't you see whats lingering on the other side You're stronger than what your mind... Makes you out to be, it's your own worst enemy And it hurts to see that you are sick of trying Cause I've been waiting ages for you to make changes One day you'll see exactly what you can be It's been some time since you've opened up your eyes And had some inspiration, maybe some motivation Make some moves from all that dreaming you do And don't let you're fears conquer you while your alive You're stronger than what your mind... Makes you out to be, it's your own worst enemy And it hurts to see that you are sick of trying Cause I've been waiting ages for you to make changes One day you'll see exactly what you can be And someday you'll be everything you wanna see And someday you'll be everything you wanna see Change things, growing isn't something that comes easy And someone might just take it all away Don't let it be me

This cycle is restarting Makes me see that I have to Get a grip on the situation Before I lose it all You have no place to tell me who I am You have no strength to make any demands If you are who you claim you are then why do you still stand alone Lesson learned I won't trust anyone who treated me like you did I know I'll always forgive, but I will never forget I don't forget So what's you explanation for all the havoc you've caused Did your plans have a destination You're gonna lose it all You have no place to tell me who I am You have no strength to make any demands You still stand alone, there's nowhere to go Lesson learned I won't trust anyone who treated me like you did I know I'll always forgive, but I will never forget I don't forget Hey, and now I see I am not afraid You don't scare me You don't scare me I've learned, I've learned, I've learned
