“Go Home You’re Deluded”

It’s your stories they’ll believe
It’s your stories they’ll listen to
But the truth
Will never be bent

It was either love or hate
Show you all or none at all
I tried meeting halfway
But you were on so many sides

Keep shooting bullets your silver bullets
Keep firing words your stinging words
No I didn’t lose my head
But thanks for trying

Wishing the right one is in your reach
You don’t know who he is
But I know somehow and thank God
he ain’t me.
