How so nice it was, when we first met
So charming I presumed
Your eyes; how they got me forever in debt
Your body seduced me and my mind did you the same
But oh, how we put side the games we both played
You held me, you kissed me
Told me things will turn out just right
How amused I was, when I saw the darkness through the light
When together, the time felt like it had stopped
But the clock was still ticking
Like a witch and her warlock
Non-stop battles between spells and tricking
Now I can’t stand you
Fuck you, vanish away
How many times you lied
Pretending you would stay
And how many times you made me hurt
But oh how so cleverly, you picked my pieces up from the dirt
I can’t believe how I felt
How amazing you made me feel
But no! Not no more you asshole
I’m the queen of playing the cards I’ve been dealt
All that time I knew, you are the stupid fool!
No! you cannot have me back
I’m through with being used
You think you can play me? You thought you were it ?
But ohh if you knew honey, my game was more legit
I used you for comfort, I used you for sex
Oh yes how I played you and not with one single regret
I meant every lie I told you, every single one
Because my ego can’t be tarnished, my song will always be sung
But who was I really hurting? Just me perhaps
So hard I fell for you, It felt like a fucking relapse
You lucky bastard! You had caught me, I shouldn’t have let my guards down
For a piece of shit man like you, who almost made me drop my crown
My crown may have been tarnished, but I’ll polish it off real quick
Save myself for a real man, who won’t make me feel sick
Who do you think you were fucking with?
A priest or a pastor
Oh nooo not me, I’m a fucking beautiful disaster!
You think your storms are the ones that will reign high?
Put your head in your palms, observe and realize
I’m the one baby, who cut the fucking ties!
You’re weak, you’re pathetic, pitiful like a dog that’s been bitten
Beneath my throne, you will bow down
I’m the one administering the whipping!
You will never be above me, I’ll put you down so low
Inferior to you I tell ya, I will remove that sexy fucking glow
So goodbye for now, today and tomorrow
My future will be great without you, no heartaches or sorrow
I’m a princess, I’m queen and all the milestones in between
There’s will be no happy endings or fairy tales, with us so sweet
Look in the mirror and tell me, how does it feel to be beat?
Fuck it! There’s the truth
The secrets are out
I know you will think of me without a fucking doubt!
Go about your business and all the things that you continue to do
And I’ll sit back with my feet up, smiling that were through
