J. Carey - Replaced

Love was in the heart from the start of it
A perfect end until the end started dissolving it
Send the coroner in
Goodbyes are the hardest when
There's tears on your face
Fingers interlaced on your waist to keep you in place
My friends say take a different route
Plenty fish in the sea
But the sound drowns out
So I swim in doubt
You're just a catch and release
You've left the chute in the seat
To fall away from me
Now I'm stressed
It's eating down to the bone or the soul
From now on I'll be home alone
It's just a frightening fact, a psyche attack
To think you're never ever coming back
Tonight, let's fight back!
Try and bring back the love
I'll do whatever it takes to resurrect what was
It might take a miracle if that much
'Cause I've lost touch
With what used to be us, yeah

The love's gone and I'm the last to know
I'm all choked 'cause my hope's become a puff of smoke
Feels like I've been taped
It's stuck in replay
'Cause I can't forget the day
That I found out in the very worst way
She no longer needs me for me
Packed her things, moved them out the door
Then she left the key
Hard to swallow, leaves me with a bad taste
There's nothing more to say
Because I've been replaced

Baby girl
I'm sitting here crushed
Reminiscing on the days
When I said you were my favorite girl
The lovely life I made with her
I was played for sure
She got behind the boards
Erased me with the fader twirl
Can't believe she'd cut me with ease
Illegal operation speed and my heart seemed to be the fee
An organ donor, stretched out without a fate
Like Snoop said, I'm screaming "Murder was the case!"
Or better yet - that was all she wrote
Looking kinda grim
Me and Chaka Demus in the same boat
Had my thoughts in a grip like Pliers
She won't be coming home
And it's oh-so-obvious
It ain't no words, her silent treatment's pretty bold
She took my feelings and she flipped 'em like a centerfold
She wanted new, 'cause it seemed my love was getting old
I guess that's why she up and hit the road
Damn


The love's gone and I'm the last to know
I'm all choked 'cause my hope's become a puff of smoke
Feels like I've been taped
It's stuck in replay
'Cause I can't forget the day
That I found out in the very worst way
She no longer needs me for me
Packed her things, moved them out the door
Then she left the key
Hard to swallow, leaves me with a bad taste
There's nothing more to say
Because I've been replaced

So we're as far apart as Venus and Mars
I tried to make the call
But the number's mine, it's no longer ours
I took steps to get the face to face, but I can't
'Cause I'm deleted from her MySpace
So here I sit
Broken pieces of a broken man
We were the blueprint
But broken hearts were never part the plan
I'm doing all I can to try and get through to you
Delusional, at my relationship's funeral
Pick up the phone, hear me out girl
That's all I'm asking
The hole I've dug is deep
I'm never climbing out this casket
Disastrous, with everything that I gave
I tried to get you back
While digging myself a very deep grave
Okay, I can see that you've won the war
And that your mind is made up
You're coming back no more
And just to show you I'm not stricken with the hate disease
I only hope you find a better me
Ha!

The love's gone and I'm the last to know
I'm all choked 'cause my hope's become a puff of smoke
Feels like I've been taped
It's stuck in replay
'Cause I can't forget the day
That I found out in the very worst way
She no longer needs me for me
Packed her things, moved them out the door
Then she left the key
Hard to swallow, leaves me with a bad taste
There's nothing more to say
Because I've been replaced

The love's gone and I'm the last to know
I'm all choked 'cause my hope's become a puff of smoke
Feels like I've been taped
It's stuck in replay
'Cause I can't forget the day
That I found out in the very worst way
She no longer needs me for me
Packed her things, moved them out the door
Then she left the key
Hard to swallow, leaves me with a bad taste
There's nothing more to say
Because I've been replaced
