Hurt Me So I Can Walk Away

HURT ME SO I CAN WALK AWAY

Throw off this world
And its false hope of turning
Sit down and talk today
No one here lasts
The length of their longing
And love are you playing with me

With your maybe someday
And your time will tell
While your hummingbird heart so vacillates
You seem to love this game
Will you hurt me so I can walk away

You say that you want me
To whisper in your ears
All the words that flow from my heart
But suspicion advances
Like an army in the night
Oh love surrender is in sight
With all your maybe somedays
And your time will tell
While your smile so slowly insinuates
You seem to love this game
Will you hurt me so I can walk away

Tomorrow morning when you wake
If these things I say are untrue
Will you call me, just call me, a fool

Then your maybe someday....
