give up.
let go.
let your shoulders slump and your head hang low.
do what you have to do, but know
that the end of the line is here.
let your dreams fly away.
maybe they'll come back some day,
but don't hold your breath

do the right thing.
get up every morning.
you were never an example,
so live your life as a warning.
let go; stop adoring
other's lives that you long to live.
nobody's perfect.

let the hole in your heart gape open.
numb the pain.
drown it, then let your eyes rain
and water your soul.
you'll never be quite whole,
but you'll live.

don't play the games.
don't settle for less.
but embrace loneliness.
cuz there's nothing to gain
by holding the pain
like the baby your arms long to cradle
but will never be able.

walk away, but don't hide.
have a friend to confide.
hope they'll be by your side,
but learn how to stand alone.
cuz in the end your the one
you need to rely on.

so give up.
