Wage War – The River lyrics


Trust is dead, like everything else you said
Each word more meaningless than the next
Your lips and your lies have severed the ties
I don't deserve this and you don't deserve me

I should've known but I doubted myself. Gave you every benefit of a doubt, I wanted no one else
But I guess I wasn't enough for you

Don't pretend like we can recover, when you chose the lust of another

Where did I go wrong?
I know I wasn't perfect but I certainly tried so hard
Was it a moment of weakness, or was it the thrill?
Did you ache for a feeling, that you faked to feel?

Don't pretend like we can recover, when you chose the lust of another

I see your wandering eyes and second glances
But I see through your lies, no second chances

Cut me free, you'll never be what I need
I hope you choke on the words I was lead to believe
Like a puppet on your strings, control means everything
And in my heart I want to forgive you
That doesn't mean I'll forget, you'll always be my regret

Here's to a past I'll never need
No “ here’s to you. "
" Rest in peace. "
