Lyrics
[Chorus]
I'm gonna suffer for you no longer
I'm gonna suffer for you no more
I'm gonna write you out of my life
And shut the door

You tried to drive a wedge between me and my friends
You pushed me to the edge time and again
I've been living in your shade since I can't remember when
Now I'm bringing this charade to an end

[Chorus]

There was subtlety and skill in your manipulative ways
You chipped away my will so you could make me stay
You soothed me with your voice until I obeyed
But I'm making my own choice from today

You used the tongue of love like a boxer uses fists
You contained me like a glove or a creeping cloak of mist
You guaranteed the stars but there always was a twist
Now I see you as you are, Egotist !

[Chorus]

I've got a ticket in my hand and I must be moving on
But I want you to understand that from the moment I am gone
I release and let you go, you owe nothing now to me
I'm not angry anymore, I'm free !

[Chorus]
