Just one more Once upon a timeJust one more Once upon a time
I can't trust anyone
Because every time I have before
It ended in MY heart being broken.
Friends, Family, Loves
They have all betrayed me
Life has taken it's tole
It's best to leave weakness unspoken.
I have to keep my wits about me
Never let down my guard
Always be bold
I don't have to show it
But inside I HAVE to be
Hallow and cold.
I can't excuse myself for stupidity
I have already been through the lessons
The consequences I have already learned.
If I stick my hand
Back in the fire
I'm going to get burned.
So I have to be ready
When it really counts
No one is going to help me
I have to be the good guy
I have to be the bad guy
And the knight
I have to slay and be the target
The leader of every fight.
No one is going to rescue me
From all of this anger and sorrow
So I'll just keep climbing this up hill battle
Strength has to come from myself
No one else has strength for me to borrow.
