Twenty Years Wasted

Have I wasted twenty years,
While I wiped away the tears?
Can you tell me I was wrong?
Or did it help me to be strong?
And the times you told me lies.
All the times I wished to die.
I hope it was worth the cost,
All the years that I have lost.

As I tried to keep my head,
Yes. I wanted to be dead.
But I carried on for you.
Even though my mood was blue.
You didn’t listen to a word,
I couldn’t make myself be heard,
But still I struggled and I tried.
Even though I always cried.

When you turned your back on me,
Then I struggled to be free,
And now I live a life alone,
But at least I have a home.
And no man will come near me,
Because I’d rather I was free,
I will not fall in love again,
I could not stand to feel the pain.

So Have I wasted twenty years?
Have I drowned in all the tears?
It just helped me to be strong,
It was you who did me wrong.
It was you who told me lies.
Broke my heart and watched me cry.
I hope now, it was worth the cost,
For the friendship that you lost.
