    I said to you to stop,
    To not continue that ordeal.
    I told you I had some dignity
    I had a certain respect to my name.
    I told you, I think that I want
    To keep atleast respecting myself.
    I said I loved you, and I wanted to love
    You more but not more than myself.
    I could have done anything
    To please you somehow
    But I couldn't carry the weight of disrespect
    Of lowering self-esteem and confidence.
    I needed a little bit of these
    To keep myself in a single piece.

    I warned you to not degrade me
    I told you I'll flee
    Away someday if you don't listen to me.

    I had all my devotion to you
    I planned a life with you ahead.
    I cried everytime I parted
    I ran back to you whenever I could.
    I endured all the taunts
    I answered to all your insecurities.
    I tried to understand your problems
    And avoid mine.
    I could have endured it all,
    Had you even accepted that
    You were not always right.

    I warned you to not degrade me
    I told you I'll flee
    Away someday if you don't listen to me.

    I gave into you, I surrendered my
    Body and soul, but not my integrity.
    Tell me didn't I leave you in between
    To make you understand I get hit too.
    I asked for trust, respect and space
    Not for my life to be left in haze.
    I asked for happiness, enough to remain alive,
    Not constant, and not at a price.
    Didn't I tell you I can't bear stress?
    Didn't I admit I wasn't the best?
    Now, you forced me to walk away
    And find myself in the dark again.

    I warned you to not degrade me
    I told you I'll flee
    Away someday if you don't listen to me.

    I left you now, finally never to return, see.
