about

Written specifically for a song contest, this song quickly became a favorite of mine. The idea of being empowered by walking away from a bad situation and doing what's right for you is a good message for many who trap themselves in bad situations.

lyrics

Your true identity, is walled off by layers of lies
You tell me you need me, but that's just not true
You just need someone to need you
For an hour
Every once in a while

This person you show to me is lifetimes away from the truth
Let this soak in, let it take root
Ooh, baby we're through
No more hours
Every once in a while

I'm heading out, I'm moving on
Babe you don't have what I need
I've wasted more time than I could imagine
Hoping that this love is real
But it'll never be

These crocodile tears that you're crying
Like you're losing your whole world
You've used those old lines so many times
Can't you try something new
Like the truth

I'm heading out, I'm moving on
Babe you don't have what I need
I've wasted more time than I could imagine
Hoping that this love is real
But it'll never be

Don't turn your back while I'm walking away
Keep thinking that I'll change my mind
I won't come back though you beg me to stay
I'm moving forward this time
More than hours
For the rest of my life

I'm heading out, I'm moving on
Babe you don't have what I need
I've wasted more time than I could imagine
Hoping that this love is real
But it'll never be
I'm heading out, I'm moving on
Babe you don't have what I need
I've wasted more time than I could imagine
Hoping that this love is real
But it'll never be
No no, no no, no no
It'll never be
