I can't do this anymore
Everytime you lie 
I walk out the door. 

You told me you were done 
With the drugs and drinking, 
Illegal fun. 

But every time I walk back in
It's become a game I'll never win. 

The lies became too much
They almost killed you, 
But did you ever think
They hurt me too? 

You look me in the eyes, 
Give me promises, 
Hopes of no more lies. 

Your supposed to be my "best friend" 
But how long will you keep them
Before this circle starts again? 

I can't do this anymore.
