I guess you finally figured out, I wasn’t what you really wanted
And, I can’t blame you. Girl all my memories they’re haunted
Now you’re moving on, and I’m still looking for direction.
Maybe its time, for a little resurrection.

It’s too bad things turned out the way they did.
Smiles and laughter, tears and words un-said
Looking from the outside in, you were always leaving
Looking from the outside in, we’re both breaking even.
Hey I’ve read the good book. Sang along to all the hymns.
Even though it’s been a while, since I talked to him
And I’m starting to realize. You never needed my affections
I guess by now, I can handle the rejection.

You might just break me down, If I hang around to long
But, I’m holding on. I guess you never were that strong
You were next in line. Baby please understand
There’s always someone to turn to, before it gets out of hand.


from Breaking Even, released May 27, 2014
