Sixteen Heart breaks
Sixteen Birthday cakes
Sixteen ways to show you care
Sixteen dollars for bus fare
I want to get away
I want to be alone
I want to remember when the moon shone so bright
The light of our Love
But I am sixteen now
I am tired of your games
I am no longer the same girl you knew yesterday
For I have changed
When you held my hand I thought for sure it was true
Especially when you said "I love you."
I look into your eyes, those eyes I now despise
And thought fairy tales were true because my happily ever after was with you
The book of my life now had its Prince Charming
Little did I know he would be harming me
My heart and soul filled with disgust
Gossip, lies, and distrust
When I look at you
You are a reminder of what was
Do you think about what that does?
Days of waiting in my gown
Wanting to feel the crown on my head
To be someone's Princess
What you did was down right mean
It hurt like a kick to the spleen
Even an apology can not erase what you did to me
