Day after day all I saw was you
And the sky came a tumbling down
Smoke in the air all I want is truth

I am a light that's aglow, that's alive
That's a warm place in your heart
You kept turning me on and off
'Til I went out and you were standing, shivering in the dark

Open your eyes
And see me leaving
Closing the door
I won't think twice
When you come pleaing
Not anymore

Hope was a dream that I had of you
In the soft, warm slumber of dawn
I must keep in mind that reality
Can be painful if neglected too long

I am aware that I will soon be released
To the mercy of a concrete jungle
I thought that I could glide right in
But instead it's over loneliness and pride I stumble

Open your eyes
And see me leaving
Closing the door
I won't think twice
When you come pleaing
Not anymore, no, no, no

Open your eyes
And see that I am not afraid of
Saying goodbye
Your strikes are up, I'm gone
So don't even try
'Cause I'm telling you right now
That I'm a free young woman
And I gotta be moving on

Once I was lost in my strife
And getting you off was my life
I was in doubt, now I know
That getting rid of you was all I needed to grow
Once I was lost, now I'm found
With my Adidas on the ground
Once I was blind, now I see
The negative effect that you were having on me

Open your eyes
And see me leaving
Closing the door
I won't think twice
When you come pleaing
Not anymore (not anymore), no, no

You're not the man
That I remember
Tell me your name
Cold empty seat
That long November
You never came

Open your eyes
And see me
See me leaving
