Bridge Over Troubled Water: Burn it Down, and Learn to Swim

I’m done, I’m done,

absolutely, fucking done!!

I’m sick of catching punishment,

from your momentary fun

*

Tired of taking on your blame,

because you are unhappy.

And the way you talk to me

the snide remarks when you are crappy

*

There is no way in hell you love me,

no way you care at all.

Cause every time that she fucks up,

I’m the one who takes the fall!

*

I love your son, I really do,

you may never know how much.

But, I cant take this disrespect,

I refuse to be your crutch!

*

I feel so dumb, so stupid!

That I gave you back control.

I wanted to believe so much,

our future was your goal.

*

You played it good, I’ll give you that,

you sure do hide that side well.

I questioned my decisions,

I ignored the flames of hell.

Had me second guessing my own vision,

trapped, like in some spell.

*

You punch and kiss equally as hard,

somedays, I can’t tell the difference.

You’re the one who holds the cards,

I’m the one left incoherent.

*

Today you got your jab in,

like I had done something wrong,

“go look in the mirror”, you said to me.

It’s your same ol’ dance and same ol’ song.

*

I hope that made you feel good,

I sure hope that it was worth it.

Later, you will say you’re sorry,

I will still feel like shit.

*

What’s crazy is SHE’S the one who made you mad!

She poked you with that stick!

But I’m the one you lash out at,

the one you treated like a dick!

*

We are no longer married,

you made that decision clear.

I don’t know what is wrong with me,

why am I just standing here?

*

Allowing you to take your aim,

delivering your blows.

Why anyone would stand for that,

heaven only knows.

*

I'm angry, yes, that much is clear,

But I never spoke out of turn.

I think this bridge I’m standing on,

Is one I really need to burn!
