#1
{Verse 1}
I thought by now you would be gone, that you'd be replaced,
I could have sworn that somehow you would have forgotten my face.
I guess it's true that I've been known to regret, but I've yet,
To give into one single word that you said.

{Chorus}
Through it all still standing strong,
Looking back I knew it all along.
Tell me how can this be wrong,
When looking back I knew it all along.

{Verse 2}
I didn't want to be the one, with the blood on their hands,
It's safe to say that we're both sick of this same, song and dance.
You said it all when you said nothing and that look on your face, it cant change,
These things come out today.

{Chorus}
Here I am still standing strong,
Looking back I knew it all along.
This is not where you belong,
And lookin back I knew it all along.

{Instrumental break}

{Chorus}
On and on still going strong,
Now I'm standing right where I belong.
And I know that I'm not wrong,
Looking back I knew it all along.
Looking back I knew it all along.


This song is wierd for me because a lot of my songs are poetic and are filled with metaphors and such. But this one has a more straight forward approach and I'm not really used to writing like that so I need some good critiquing to make sure all is well. Thanks to all who reply.
Forgive them Father, they know not what they do.

{Verse 1}
I thought by now you would be gone, that you'd be replaced,
I could have sworn that somehow you would have forgotten my face.
I guess it's true that I've been known to regret, but I've yet,
To give into one single word that you said.

I liked this verse because of it's flow. I don't know, when reading it, it just comes off nicely

{Chorus}
Through it all still standing strong,
Looking back I knew it all along.
Tell me how can this be wrong,
When looking back I knew it all along.

I'm not sure I like the first line of this chorus. It sounds a little too cheesy for my taste but if you like it, then by all means keep it. Also I would replace the third line with the third line of your second chorus. I think the other sounds better

{Verse 2}
I didn't want to be the one, with the blood on their hands,
It's safe to say that we're both sick of this same, song and dance.
You said it all when you said nothing and that look on your face, it cant change,
These things come out today.

The third line seems too lengthy and it sort of throws off the floor. However, if you sing kind of fast it could end up being a nice change of pace from the rest of the song. It all depends on what you do with it. Also, for me, the last line seems a little too vague. Other than that, solid verse

{Chorus}
Here I am still standing strong,
Looking back I knew it all along.
This is not where you belong,
And lookin back I knew it all along.

{Instrumental break}

{Chorus}
On and on still going strong,
Now I'm standing right where I belong.
And I know that I'm not wrong,
Looking back I knew it all along.
Looking back I knew it all along.

Again, I like the "this is not where you belong" line as your 3rd chorus line the best, in my opinion

All in all, I really enjoyed the piece. Even though the lyrics are definitely straightforward, I still think it works because for the most part you've kept a good flow and your lines are not too cliche. I liked it.
here, My Dear, here it is
