I've Seen Them All

It's about weary of falling in love, because experience has shown you that being in love can distort your judgement and make you do things you wouldn't ordinarily do

I have spent my days running after shadows

So brief and tender the touch, merely to dissipate in my fingers

I've let the past and the quiet hope rule me for too long

As the truth comes crashing before my eyes

 

I've set myself free whilst coming to realise

The reasons why I'm still alive

 

And I've seen them all

I've seen every type of girl you could've known

As each failure eats at my soul

Every heart that's out of reach

Every time where I wish I could let go

 

Enough of letting others drive me beyond my comfort

I can't allow myself to another plaything for the self-obsessed

Now they'll know what it is to be toyed 

They'll the heart's roar, the pains of being destroyed

 

I've lost my self-respect and now it shows

The price I paid for not letting go

 

And I’ve seen them all

I’ve seen every type of girl you could’ve known

As each failure eats at my soul

Every heart that’s out of reach

Every time I wish I could let go

 

They'll take you for everything

If you open yourself up to pain

They'll strip you of your entire being

And you're doomed to repeat the cycle

Over and over again

 

And I’ve seen them all

I’ve seen every type of girl you could’ve known

As each failure eats at my soul

Every heart that’s out of reach

Every time I wish I could let go

The End
