My Open Hand
Why do I try so hard, only to end up broken in the end?
Why do I give it my all, just to be torn down again?
And why in the he** should I keep wasting my time on someone like you
When you can't even remember my name?
I'll tell you now that I know what you've done to me.
And not once have you ever shown love to me.
All you ever gave me was this broken heart.
Sometimes I don't even know where to start.
What compelled you to act so;
Will the truth ever be made known?
Here I sit, waiting,
Despite all the pain in my soul,
I can't seem to let you go.
My heart was broken because of you.
You'll never notice; my heart's in two.
And you'll never realize that the life we shared was a lie.
But still, here I sit;
Will you ever be the man that I've been needing?
Will you never see that
The times I cried
The way that you lied
Our life that won't mend
It's gone in the end
Yet now I stand
With an open hand
Waiting for you
No matter what we went through
No matter how hurt I am
I wish you'd understand
That you'd fallen for me when my heart was at ease
And now here I stand as you grovel in the sand
I don't need you anymore
I've locked my heart's door
I threw away the key
So you could never see
That I don't love you anymore
I'll never let you take advantage;
I'm gonna go out and tell all my friends
So you'll never love another again
And I've taken back my open hand
So good luck to you and your sorry life
I'm never taking on anymore of your strife
You're all alone in this great wide world
And you'll never meet another girl
As long as it's here where I stand,
You'll never receive another open hand
