Can’t Give it Up by Carrie Katz

You wanted out
It was plain to see
But you wouldn’t do it
You left it up to me
you pushed my buttons
Till I screamed
Now when I look back
It’s more Bitter than sweet

Some things
Are meant to be together
Like Saint Valentine’s
And faire weather
I know now
It was not meant to be
I saw it in your eyes
When you looked at me

You can’t give it up, I can’t let it go
I thought you were my kindred spirit
So why did you rape my soul
Yes I stand guilty, of staying too long
I kept hoping I was wrong

How does love turn sour
Tasting like hate
I was surprised at my
Out burst of Rage
After I lashed out
I felt so ashamed
Our daughter witnessed
Our dirty little game

Now you want
What’s yours
The bracelet you gave me
But not my tears
I once thought you loved me
I convinced myself it was true
But when I look back
I see I had no clue

You think now
it’s all my fault
I betrayed you
I walked out
What you fail to see
Is the part you played
It’s easier to blame me
Than to share in the blame
