And now, I am not the same
You say our parting was a shame
Begin again as more than friends?
Can you tell me of your heart?
For secrets kept, I have wept
and felt it best that I depart
though it left an open wound

And now, I am not the same
I am broken, numb to pain
I cannot feel, and do not heal
though a lesson I have learned
Know my rage will be your wage
should my faith you burn
For I cannot trust too soon

And now, I am not the same
I've engaged in my own game
It takes its toll but I'm in control
I will never lose again
So love me with care, if you dare
or you'll pay the costs in the end
And I'll walk away immune

And now, I am not the same
'Tis my heart you must reclaim
Not done with ease in this cold breeze
That blows from inside my soul
If the love you keep for me is deep
Then that love you must extol
To save our hearts from certain doom
