I never did it, no, I won't admit it
Why should I lie for you anymore
You never loved me
You pushed and shoved me
I see the woman I never saw

I saw you laugh when the knife was twisted
It still hurts but the pain has shifted
I'm looking back at the time that drifted by
But I won't cry for the wasted years
Cause you ain't worth the salt in my tears

Feeling neglected, used and rejected
You need a shoulder to lean upon
Baby you picked him, found your next victim
Don't worry, someone will come along

I broke the spell that you kept me under
I had enough of the rain and thunder
I lost track of the time and I wonder why
But I won't cry for the wasted years
Cause you ain't worth the salt in my tears

I'll sit around and drink a few more beers
Until the memory just disappears
Cause you ain't worth the salt in my tears

I saw you laugh when the knife was twisted
It still hurts but the pain has shifted
I'm looking back at the time that drifted by
But I won't cry for the wasted years
Cause you ain't worth the salt in my tears

Cause you ain't worth the salt in my tears
Cause you ain't worth the salt in my tears

    It speaks to me of the 37 years it took me to realize that my wife was the manipulative and abusive one. But i finally got out.
