I burn into ashes from your hurtful words
Everything you said blinded me
I have to burn myself to numb the pain
Bursting into flames
I just can't take this anymore
Please go away
I need to the pain you caused me

Everything is burning with hate
No one knows the pain
Burning my ashes
I'll never get away from the pain

I have realized it's not you that needs to go away
It's me
I need to burn and die
I just need to ask you one question
Before i go
Did you ever love me?
