I'm heading into Winter, and each progressing day sets us apart
I'm trying to put some miles between us, but I end up right back at the start
I'm having trouble letting go, although most days I'll swear I'm doing fine
And in some dark corner of myself I want to hear you say you still are mine
And I'll be praying to your God your words are true
I'll be praying to a God I never knew

Yeah, well we all have our choices; I know you by the road you choose to walk
And from your lips "forgiveness" is just another word, just useless talk
I'm stronger now I've given up, I'm angry but at least now I can feel
Determination pulled me through, I'm better off alone and that's what's real
So I will march into the battle of the new
And I'll be praying that your God he loves me too
Yeah, I'll pick myself back up, it's what I do...
And I will march because I've nothing left to lose

Never again, now I know I have worth
Roll on the winter and freeze up the earth
Never again, I deserve more than this
Love comes in seasons; it is what it is
It is what it is, and you are what you are

Oh it is what it is
