You Can't Go Back

This isn't how you planned it

I wasn't supposed to know

I found out by accident

Now you have nowhere to go

You can't hide it anymore

Can't play the innocent now

You're guilty, and I know it

And it doesn't matter how

I will not hear excuses

None could possibly suffice

You've broken our sacred vows

And you cannot make it right

There is nothing you can say

That will undo what you've done

You can't go back and change it

There's nowhere for you to run

And I refuse to pretend

That I am okay with this

For you destroyed all my trust

With your first illicit kiss

Go away, leave me aolne

I want you gone from my life

It's over, done; we're finished

I'll no longer be your wife
