Nick Priest – Don't Expect Me lyrics

Don't expect me to stick around here
Situations have to change
Don't expect much of who I once was
Now the scars have been displaced
So let's burn this bridge, never come back here

Did you assume that I'd succumb to this grave I somehow dug
That I'd end up swimming with the sharks?
And yes it's true; I faked that smile and wore it like a mask
But now I can see the light at last

Don't expect me to stick around here
Situations have to change
Don't expect much of who I once was
Now the scars have been displaced
So let's burn this bridge, never come back here

Did you intend these lacerations to leave me in the dark?
But the dark subsides as the sun comes up
It's not the end cause I'm still here so this is just the start
Now I'll write the script for my own part

I wake up to find the past is gone
The lies, the lust; I've overcome
I'll burn out even brighter cause
I'm here to sing 'this war we've won'

Don't expect me to stick around here
Situations have to change
Don't expect much of who I once was
Now the scars have been displaced
So let's burn this bridge, never come back here
