You said something
During our final goodbye
It made me think –
Made me understand why

Why we would always fly
But never land
Why you’d break each promise
Now I understand

See, loyalty
It isn’t your thing
And commitment?
It burns you and stings

And the words you said
Made my eyes open up
You spoke the truth
And called your own bluff

And the words you said
Showed me the truth
The man I knew –
He wasn’t you

The truth you spoke
Should have broken my heart
But I already knew
And I already broke

I see you for you –
The real man, the real guy
Now I understand
Once bitten, twice shy.
