Compromising.

It is a sad thing to go against yourself

To please a stranger and to deny your own true self

It only brings you pain

I cannot live that way

Those choices come back to haunt you

The stranger moves on, unaware of how you compromised yourself

The stranger doesn’t care

You are the one who’s left buried in shame

I cannot live that way

Those choices come back to haunt you

Each time you give yourself away

When you expect nothing in return, nothing is all you’ll receive

And a lonely place that is to be

I cannot live that way

Those choices come back to haunt you

It is a sad thing to compromise your self

You are left with shame, loneliness, and misery

The stranger feels nothing

I cannot live that way

Those choices come back to haunt you
