Written New Years Eve 2010. Re-written and revised for you.


I think it's time we wrap this up.
I think we've had about enough.
It's gonna take a little while longer
Before I get to feeling any stronger.
Cuz you walked out and went away
And I was left here all alone to stay.
But I won't waste one more year wishing you'd come around and stay with me here.

So I think it's time I wrap this up.
12 songs and half of 3 journals is just too much.
It's gonna take someone amazing
To pull me out of this mess you left me in.
Cuz all you do is walk away.
You promise the world then you never pay.
So if you come around to see if I care
You won't find my heart still wrapped up for you there.

I had to wrap up my heart.
It was once as a gift but now it's just to keep it from falling apart.
I wanted to give it to you.
But I don't know what else to do.
So I'm wrapping it up. I'm wrapping it up.

That was the first time I fell in love.
There were others I liked a lot but not enough.
I lost all my confidence when I was around you.
Well thank God I finally learned how to live without you.
So the next time that you come my way
I won't be reaching back for those yesterdays
When you were my friend and you were still there
Cuz now I've got new friends, I found someone who cares.

I keep on screaming but don't make a sound.
I open my mouth but the words don't come out.
I'm waving my arms, yelling 'I'm over here'
But I can't make it any more clear.
So I'll just shut up.
