There's No 'I' in 'Team'

Since when did I get so gullible? I seem to fall for this every time.

I'm tired of being the one hurting in the end, once I realize they were never truly mine.

I'm laying down the grenades and guns, there's no point left for me to fight.

I thought we really had something going for us, but I'm almost never right.

Let's all put away our words like knives, that always stab me in the back.

I find it hard to believe what we've become; love is something we obviously lack.

My heart misleads my mind, which constantly makes me says too much.

As soon as these loving words leave my mouth, you're slowly slipping from my clutch.

I'm losing you and I try to bite my tongue, but I need to get this off my chest.

It releases this weight upon my shoulders, the weight soon presses back on again with regret.

I'll leave our fate up to time's decisions; we'll see where it makes us go.

Either we'll travel our separate ways, different paths, or reunite again and grow.

Maybe we can stitch ourselves back together, our threads have come undone.

I have to change my ways, keep my walls up longer 'cause this feels like a rerun.

I'm done starring in this stupid episode, with the script forever being the same.

Finally finished with my heart being tossed around, because love is not a game.
