Rollins Band — Rejection lyrics

I had it wrong for so long in my head
I was walking around like I was dead
And all the time my mind was stuck on you

And I clawed, while you stalled
I was a fool to think we were involved
I guess I needed to believe it, so bad

Rejection never felt this good
Everything unclear, now so well understood
At first I didn't see it as kind
But you did me a favor when you left me behind

You might not believe it was true
It's all those things you never said that told me all about you
It's the things you try to conceal that get revealed

And I had to get it wrong before I had got it right
And I'm not the kind to argue, I'm not the kind to fight
By the time I'd reached the truth I'd reached the end

Rejection never felt this good
Everything unclear, now so well understood
At first I didn't see it as kind
But you did me a favor when you left me behind

Now I'm alone, and I'm burning
I am hurting like hell but I am learning
The scars will take me far like they always do

And I believe I'm alright
I do believe I am alright

Rejection never felt this good
Everything unclear, now so well understood
At first I didn't see it as kind
But you did me a favor when you left me behind

'Cause now I see how you are
Now I see how you are
Now I see how it is
And now I see what you do
And I watch them line up
I watch them fall down
One after one
One after one
I watch your smile grow and grow and grow
I think to myself, it couldn't be me!
No way!!
