Being played for a fool by the one you love really does hurt

A chapter in the book Reflections Of Color

You Ain't Got Far To Go

by Brett Matthew West

You Ain't Got Far To Go


Mama used to tell me be careful what you do
But, Mama never told me about no one like you
Out all night and running wild where the neon's burning bright
Leaving me to wonder where you are tonight

And, if you wanna hurt my feelings you ain't got far to go
If you wanna see me crying keep putting on your show
Every time I need you all you say is no
And, if you wanna hurt my feelings you ain't got far to go

Someone else will hold you looking for a brand new start
The more I learn to care for you the more we fall apart
To them it's just another game, but, for me, it's quite a show
And, if you want to hurt my feelings you ain't got far to go

There's a line I can't cross over and goodbye is on the way
You were mine forever that's what the stories say
Blinded by a feeling I can't get over you
Chained here to a memory of things you put me through

And, if you wanna hurt my feelings you ain't got far to go
If you wanna see me crying keep putting on your show
Every time I need you all you say is no
And, if you wanna hurt my feelings you ain't got far to go

How am I gonna tell them it's time to go away
Loneliness is all I see and tomorrow's another day
We were such a perfect pair everybody told me so
And, if you wanna hurt my feelings you ain't got far to go

If you wanna hurt my feelings you ain't got far to go
If you wanna see me crying keep putting on your show
Every time I need you all you say is no
And, if you wanna hurt my feelings you ain't got far to go
