I'm Just Saving Myself
It took a hold of us quickly
Tearing us to shreds with each hit
Our love was like poison;
An addiction we couldn't quit
With every passing hour
Our medicine only makes us sick
Love lies lost on little white lines
For the crimes that we commit
Yet he remains beautiful in every way
His eyes illuminate, the path that we should take
Our hearts grow more brittle and broken everyday
We are trapped in this vicious cycle, searching for an escape

But realization caught my attention
Your promises kept my disbelief held in suspension
How can I get better, if we're always sinking together?

I'm not abandoning you,
 I'm just saving myself.

Good for you.  Sometimes we must lose to gain.  This sounds like this is one of those cases.  Save yourself.
Good decision ....... Gene
