What Happened?

I dedicate this to my "best friend."
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn?
What kind of friendship have I earned?
For you to just stand there and watch me die?
How many times to me have you lied?
Do you really care or am I just for entertainment?
Really? What are you doing?
If you care, say something
Before I decided whether to stay or to go
To go away from this hell of a home

Just gonna stand there and watch me cry?
Drown in the tears you have brought to my eyes
For now I’m gone
Mentally I haven’t been here for a long time
Your hold on me was tight, but not that it’s gone
I feel as if I can breathe,
As if I can finally fly away and be free

What kind of friends have we become
To have to be this way
What happened to everything that we said
And where has your heart been?
Because mine has been reaching out to you
Trying to get you to understand
But to no avail, this time it is you that has failed.
