She accused me of not having any drive in life
She said thatâ€™s why she would never be my wife
Isnâ€™t ironic, how the one thing that gave me drive and made me wanna be
Didnâ€™t want to be with me because she saw no drive in me
â€œIâ€™m saying no because people donâ€™t really change, so you must be lyingâ€
Says the girl who was desperately in love with me, without me even trying
â€œWell thatâ€™s my opinion and iâ€™m gonna stick with itâ€
Well do you not think that makes you a hypocrite?
How come you can change so much that the idea of me makes you sick?
But when i say Iâ€™ve changed, you call me a liar and a prick?
â€œI hate you because you always think your right? â€œ
â€œHave no time to explain now; have to go for a shiteâ€
â€œNo one can make you happy; no one can light your fireâ€
Oh please spare me this shit, your preaching to the choir
I wrote the book on being an Island do you not remember? And may i add
I shed not a single tear when i was burying my dad
When i saw him sick, i said to my friend i want him well or dead
So when he died i got on with it willingly and not with a dread
Even though i was very young, i knew then that, such is life
Now itâ€™s funny listening to you feeding me all this rife
What? You got over me and now you think you know it all?
Trust me babe, if you keep thinking this way youâ€™re going to fall
I know because Iâ€™ve seen it with my own eyes and been through it all
Just make sure you come out of it standing tall
You may like this new assertiveness and think that itâ€™s cool
But itâ€™s not the answer, itâ€™s just a tool, and if you think otherwise youâ€™re just a fool
In this path you have chosen, the roads are very rocky
Donâ€™t make the mistake of getting too cocky
This is a journey for your mind but not your heart
After 13 years it brought me right back to the start
If i were you i would not take this route i wouldnâ€™t take the bate
But if you do make sure by the time you return to earth, itâ€™s not too late
