Pain in my heart as I watch the family split apart,
Things might never be the same,
Betrayal is the game
The tears in my eyes as we say our bitter goodbyes,
I ask myself why,
Why does it have to be this way?
I don't want it to end, no not today
Betrayal loves to ruin people's lives,
As I look around all I see is knives,
Stuck in people's backs
How can you get the story straight when you don't know the facts?
Families are meant to last forever,
Now I might never see the joy and laughter like once before,
It's over now,
There is no more
