I will promise myself I won’t care
Distracting myself from your stare
And I’ve seen this mistake once before
With your games I will never fall for

I’ve hung up my guns
I won’t kill again

I won’t forget you
I won’t forget you
I’m not gonna let you win
(I’m not gonna)

But I’m tired of lying
Tired of fighting you
And it's not gonna change

You asked for my heart
You know that I’m down
But not the way you lie to me
And tear it all apart
And beg for me to stay

I’ve sailed off to sea
I’m not coming back

I won’t forget you
I won’t forget you
I’m not gonna let you win
I’m not gonna

But I’m tired of the lying
Tired of fighting you
And it's not gonna change

Counting down
Make that sound
And you know it makes no sense

Counting down
Till you mess around
And I know you can’t ever change
When I’m trembling
Thrown overboard
When I’m ready to relive the past

Counting down
Make that sound
Break the silence

Pretend it's not forever
Ill pull myself together
Ill say that I'll forget her
Ill breathe
And I'll say she never hurt me
And look at it as learning
And laugh about the good and the bad
Because I will live forever
We don’t belong together
I know I'll feel better
One day when I can make it through

I won’t forget you
I won’t forget you
I’m not gonna let you win
I’m not gonna

But I’m tired of lying
Tired of fighting you
And it's not gonna change

I won’t forget you
(Counting down)
I’m not gonna let you win
(Counting down)
I’m tired of the lying
Tired of fighting you
And it's not gonna change

    Oh its just a broken relationship wherein one was betrayed and the one who was betrayed by his partner tried hard to forgive and forget but it all happens again..
