I've written so many songs about you
This is the last one, after this I'm through
When I sing this one, when I do my show,
People will hear it, the world will know

I've written so many songs about you
Some have been bitter, a few have been blue
And you have inspired me for the last time
Soon you'll be banished from my heart & mind

CHORUS:
After the tears, arguements and heartaches
Could it be our love was all a mistake
The fairy tale's ended, now we both know
Our "once upon a time" was so long ago

I've written so many songs about you
You said I used you, yes I guess it's true
Whatever you did, did something to me
I was your captive, but soon I'll be free

I've written so many songs about you
This is the last one, after this I'm through
It's taken so long to finally see
My songs about you are all about me

(Chorus)
