Empty promises are just dirty damn lies
Parading around in a cheap disguise
You’ll like to me til I quit lyin’ to myself
If it ain’t me damn sure gonna be somebody else

I can count the days you were kind on one hand
You weaken me til I can barely stand
You’ll keep hurting me til I quit hurtin’ myself
If it ain’t me damn sure gonna be somebody else

If I can’t help myself up
You’ll keep on keepin’ me down
So go off til I’m strong enough
To break my fall and turn it back around on you

I lost track of every time that you swore
Ya didn’t have to be the way you were before
You’ll lie to me til I quit lyin’ to myself
If it ain’t me damn sure gonna be somebody else

If I can’t help myself up
You’ll keep on keepin’ me down
So go off til I’m strong enough
So go off til I’m strong enough
To break my fall and turn it back around on you
