Time to let go

The stars have faded
Just like our friendship
Were things ever going to be good?
There has been so much pain, hurt, anger and tears
Now is the time to move on

Now is the time to understand
That this causes more harm than good
Time to let go and learn to live again
Before the bitterness sets in

I feel so rejected
They say the truth hurts
Am I really that bad?
I am not that stupid
But thatís how I feel

I need to regain my self-esteem
Learn to like me for what I am
Our friendship has made me weak and small
And I deserve better than that

You are so honest but you also hide the truth
You are so unpredictable itís scary
Your habits would annoy
Your mannerisms too

I want something I canít have
But do I really want it

Reality strikes
It's time to let go
