lyrics

I WAS A QUEEN FOR A WEEK
ONLY THING WAS I COULD NOT SPEAK,
WHEN IT CAME DOWN TO PLAYING THE GAME
AND YOU TOLD ME THAT I COULD CHANGE
BUT IT WOULDN’T FEEL THE SAME, SO THIS IS MY LAST SONG ANYWAY
THINGS ARE ONLY THE SAME, CAUSE YOU COULDN’T AFFORD TO LET THEM CHANGE

OH, NOW LOVE, HOW HAVE YOU FOLLOWED ME HERE
I DON’T KNOW, BUT I CAN’T WATCH YOU ANYMORE
LOVE, I SAID I’M LEAVING AGAIN, I WON’T STAY
IT’S BETTER, IF I GO- IT’S ONLY A PART OF THE ROAD THAT I’M TRAVELING ALONE
I’M TRAVELING ALONE

THIS IS THE LAST TIME THAT I’LL SAY GOODBYE
I CAN’T REPEAT MY HEART,
FOR THE SAKE OF MY MIND
AND YOU TELL ME IT CAN CHANGE,
BUT I CAN’T WAIT THAT LONG, I NEED A ITTLE BIT MORE TO HOPE FOR
THIS ARE ALWAYS THE SAME, BECAUSE YOU’RE TOO AFRAID TO ASK FOR MORE

OH, NOW LOVE, HOW HAVE YOU FOLLOWED ME HERE
I DON’T KNOW, BUTI CAN’T WATCH YOU ANYMORE
LOVE, I SAID I’M LEAVING AGAIN, I WON’T STAY
IT’S BETTER, IF I GO- IT’S ONLY A PART OF THE ROAD THAT I’M TRAVELING ALONE
I’M TRAVELING ALONE

I WAS A QUEEN FOR A WEEK
ONLY THING WAS I COULD NOT SPEAK,
WHEN IT CAME DOWN TO PLAYING THE GAME
AND YOU TOLD ME THAT I COULD CHANGE
BUT IT WOULDN’T FEEL THE SAME, SO THIS IS MY LAST SONG ANYWAY
