Stalemate

Lyrics by Danny Bullis © 2011

Verse

How long must I wait to hear you say those words that I know are on your mind?

Don’t be afraid you won’t hurt me more than you already have

I don’t need your compassion, I just need your honesty.

Chorus

This stalemate is killing me

Why do I let it go on?

I’m not your pawn

Verse

I spent all I had and then-some, travelled half the world for you

I left all that was near and dear behind just to be there by your side

So is it really any wonder why it’s so hard to say goodbye?

I won’t let this fall asunder but you won’t even try

You won’t even try...

Chorus

This stalemate is killing me

Why do I let it go on?

I’m not your pawn

We’re going nowhere love

I’m beginning to stagnate

locked in this stalemate

Bridge

Well I’m sure by now this would have been enough for anyone else but me

anyone else but me

Chorus   

This stalemate has made me see

That I cannot let this go on

I’m not your pawn

Holding on for so long...

I’m beginning to walk away

Done with this stalemate

Outro

I AM DONE

DONE WITH YOU

I AM DONE

DONE WITH YOU
