Ulterior Motives

V1

I’ve lost the will to talk, think, feel and love,
Reduced to tears, then silence, then drink,
Not to stop the spinning, ‘cos this time it’s dead,
I have stopped, I’m past the tears - I’m lost.

Chorus

I said, why are you hurting me
I said, how could you leave me alone
Once again, I look to others to blame,
But I’m the only one

Feel the shame.

V2

You didn’t think,
Your naivety eclipsed my pain,
I’ve risked so much for selfless reasons and more for selfish ones,

But you can move on, your mistakes are dissolvable,
and I’ve had this chair kicked from right under me,

 Chorus

I said, why are you hurting me
I said, how could you leave me alone
Once again, I look to others to blame,
But I’m the only one

Feel the shame.

Middle 8

You’ll never have an idea of how I hurt,
or what was said to protect you,
But it has left me naked, being treated like dirt.

Chorus

I said, why are you hurting me
I said, how could you leave me alone
Once again, I look to others to blame,
But I’m the only one

Feel the shame.

And I said, why are you hurting me
I said, how could you leave me alone
Once again, I look to others to blame,
But I’m the only one

Feel the shame.
