Nick Priest - Don't Expect Me

rate me

Don't expect me to stick around here

Situations have to change

Don't expect much of who I once was

Now the scars have been displaced

So let's burn this bridge, never come back here

Did you assume that I'd succumb to this grave I somehow dug

That I'd end up swimming with the sharks?

And yes it's true; I faked that smile and wore it like a mask

But now I can see the light at last

Don't expect me to stick around here

Situations have to change

Don't expect much of who I once was

Now the scars have been displaced

So let's burn this bridge, never come back here

Did you intend these lacerations to leave me in the dark?

But the dark subsides as the sun comes up

It's not the end cause I'm still here so this is just the start

Now I'll write the script for my own part

I wake up to find the past is gone

The lies, the lust; I've overcome

I'll burn out even brighter cause

I'm here to sing 'this war we've won'

Don't expect me to stick around here

Situations have to change

Don't expect much of who I once was

Now the scars have been displaced

So let's burn this bridge, never come back here
