I wrote this song to help those who may be in a bad situation/relationship get the strength to leave and know they aren't alone in the way they feel


You used to
Lyrics by Dawn McClain for LeorahDreams publishing 08/2007

V1-Sick and tired of making excesses
So I’m not any more
Don’t know how we made it this far, but I’m walking out that door
Left some money on your dresser, it should help out with the bills
Cause this thing we got ain’t working
Instead of love, bitters what I feel
Pre hook-Cause you don’t treat or look at me the same
And as a matter of fact
I think your feelings for me, they have changed
And they ain’t never coming back
I’ve tried and tried so hard to explain
But you managed not to hear
So by the time you read this I’ll, be moving on with my life
Hook-I’ve packed my heartache and tears
Moving on past my fears of being alone without you
No I don’t know what I’ll do, but anythings better than
Living a lie with someone who’ll never love me the way
You used to
V2-reminiscing over pictures in a frame so perfectly
Wearing smiles but we’re pretending cause we know we’re not happy
A living hell behind these four walls battle scares no one can see
I’m breaking out of this here prison cause this heartache is killing me
B sec-No more, no more feeling this pain
No more trying to make myself stay
No more, tired of feeling misused
I’m better off without you
