No Longer

Lyrics by Jon W. 

Your words, they haunt me

Your voice, it taunts my soul

A diction I can’t shake

Oh, oh, but I’m done listening to

You telling me I’m not good enough

To take the road less traveled

Threatening me, I call your bluff

I will no longer let you unravel

My life.

My loneliness forsaken

My faith no longer shaken

My soul no longer taken

By you.

I made a choice to leave you

And never naively believe you

This is what I have to say to you

No longer will you flaunt my flaws (to me)

No longer am I a lost cause (you see)

I’m pressing play, you’re stuck on pause

I’ve repossessed control

I’ve taken back my soul.

In the dead of the night

Sometimes I still hear your cry

The siren song I used to fight

Now I’m just not listening

You told me I was better off

Alone with my deceitful mind

You let me think I was better off

Leaving myself behind

My loneliness forsaken

My faith no longer shaken

My soul no longer taken

By you.

I made a choice to leave you

And never naively believe you

This is what I have to say to you

No longer will you flaunt my flaws (to me)

No longer am I a lost cause (you see)

I’m pressing play, you’re stuck on pause

I’ve repossessed control

I’ve taken back my soul.

The tide is coming in now

The water’s warm again

The fire has been put out

Your reign has come to an end

Although I hear your voice sometimes

Trying to creep back in

I’m stronger than I was before

No, I won’t let you in

A lock is on my glass heart’s door

No, I won’t let you in

My loneliness forsaken

My faith no longer shaken

My soul no longer taken

By you.

I made a choice to leave you

And never naively believe you

This is what I have to say to you

No longer will you flaunt my flaws

No longer am I a lost cause

I have pressed play, you’re stuck on pause

I’ve repossessed control

I’ve taken back control

I’m reunited with my soul.
