  1. " My Life Without You"
    I begged you on hands and knees to
    try to live with me in peace, seem war
    stayed on your mind
    So here's the reasons
    why I'm leaving you behind
    I need space to think, to express myself
    without- your doubt
    Without - your eyes upon my thoughts
    Without - your dagger looks and pouts
    Without - the love/hate you feel for me
    Without - having to ask what do you prefer
    to eat
    Without - being the rug under your feet
    Without - taking your punches mentally and
    physically
    Without - wishing for the love I've never had
    Without - hearing you're sorry, over and over
    Again
    Without - You pretending to be my friend
    Without - the jealousy I feel you have
    Although every day I give my best
    Without - the evil you expose
    Without - the weakness you show
    Without - the non - support you show
    for my talents each day
    Without - responding to your negative ways
    Without - the fear of being alone, yet relieved
    when your gone
    Without - feeling I've wasted so many years
    Without - wishing I had a penny for each tear
    For me there's something you can do, give me
    back "My Life Without You"
