Taking All the Credit

 

You swore you'd never be nobody’s fool

Never one to hide your gun and live within the rules

You walk a line so thin and long it shakes

You go all in so hard and fast and then slam on the brakes

You pledged your love one night

But no one heard you when you said it

You ended up leaving with the sun

And taking all the credit

 

You won them over if they never saw

A calculated emptiness until their hearts were raw

You played them like a golden tambourine

Like actors in a play you wrote walking through a dream

You went away one night

Never to regret it

You ended up leaving them behind

And taking all the credit

You ended up leaving us behind

And taking all the credit
