Puppet.

Broken PuppetEveryone wants a guiding hand,
A shining light when things get rough.
But yours was a vice-like grip,
And now I’ve had enough.
As hard as it is to say goodbye,
I know that now’s the right time.

You saw all of my smiles,
But you were never there to see me cry.
Now it’s time I put up a fight,
Stopped pretending everything’s ok.

You milked me for my money.
Milked me for my love.
Treat me like a puppet;
Got me all tied up.
Now I’m dreaming like Pinocchio,
It’s time to free myself.

You left me with a broken heart,
Shattered into a million parts.
I’ll never forget the moments we shared,
But I was a fool to think you cared.
It’s time to free myself of your noose,
For this time, I won’t lose.

As hard as it is to say goodbye,
I know that now’s the right time.

You saw all of my smiles,
But you were never there to see me cry.
Now it’s time I put up a fight,
Stopped pretending everything’s ok.

You milked me for my money.
Milked me for my love.
Treat me like a puppet;
Got me all tied up.
Now I’m dreaming like Pinocchio,
It’s time to free myself.

I’ve tried to leave so many times before,
You always found a way to win me back.
But not this time,
This time it’s real,
I’m already out of the door.
It was you, not me.
Who changed me to who I’d never be.

You saw all of my smiles,
But never knew you were the reason I’d cry.
You stole all of my pride,
It’s time for me to leave you behind.

You milked me for my money.
Milked me for my love.
Treat me like a puppet;
I’ve untied my strings,
Now I’m dreaming like Pinocchio,
This time it’s me who wins.
