Its the last straw

Karmsin 2007 (Lagos)

Sometimes you love me
Sometimes you hate me
Someone save me

Cause you're confusing
Do you love me or hate me
Let me know
So I'll know what expressions to show

You got me thinking
Dragging me to leaving you
Cause you making me look like a fool
Or maybe a tool
I ahould be available only when you love me
And when you hate me
I should let you be

I can't take this anymore
Cause I don't know how long this is gonna go on
Cause I'm done
With you treating me like trash
You never said sorry
You just want me to be there
Whenever you need love
But when you're done
You just shove
Me aside.

I have feelings too
I get hurt too
But I know how to control it
And I know what to do
Unlike you

I really don't wanna leave you
But it seems like you aren't gonna change
So let's say
Its for the best
