Four Point Back (Pointing Fingers)

Every name you called me, every hurtful word
Cut me so deeply that it really hurt
But then I remembered something I know is true
That when you point a finger at me, four point back to you
 
When I first heard your words, they cut me deep
Sometimes I'm afraid they'll echo in my mind as I sleep
But then I remember the cold hard truth
When you point a finger, four point back at you
 
 I cried, I'm not ashamed to admit, after I realized my worst fear
Then I finally decided you aren't worth my blood, sweat, or tears
Cuz you fail to realize when you point an accusing finger at someone else
You've got four pointing at yourself
 
I'm getting over you, accepting our fate
While you sit there, consumed by bitterness and hate
Because I know something you don't seem to
You fail to realize when you point a finger at someone else, four point back at you
 
You took pieces of my heart I can't take back
But you wouldn't if you could, I know for a fact
You're so blind, or maybe you just refuse to see
That four fingers point back at you when you point one at me
 
We were unstoppable when we were together
Now you've vowed to hate me forever
But that's okay, cuz I know something you refuse to see
That four fingers point at you when you're blaming me
 
Even if everything you called me rings true
You're still not worth it and I'm still better than you
I've given up, I know you'll never get this through your stubborn, bitter brain
That four fingers point back at you when you swear I'm to blame
 
If you wanna fight fire with fire, remember two can play that game
But the difference between you and me is that I'll admit I'm to blame
If you're gonna point a finger, point where you will
But take into account the speed of the rumor mill
 
I know I should stop now, but I'm not done with you just yet
This was a ticking time bomb from the day we met
Stop pointing fingers, what does it even prove
Because four will always point back at you
 
I know I should stop now, but I'm not done with you just yet
This was a ticking time bomb from the day we met
Stop pointing fingers, what does it even prove
Because four will always point back at you
 
I've never met someone so full of hate
I've never met someone so eager to blame
You need to stop pointing fingers and watch the words coming out of your mouth
Because four point back and someone's going to call you out
 
What was once a heart of pure gold
Has now turned black and gone icy cold
The shots were fired the second you began to hate
But you're forgetting that finger pointing is just a way of ignoring your own mistakes 
 
You're being irrational, and I think it's only fair
To tell you I'm over it and I no longer care
You've resorted to petty insults and refusing to let go of the bitterness and hate
You can point your finger and try to hurt me, but you're way too late
 
Say whatever you want, say whatever you will
You know you're being ridiculous if you would take a second to be still
Stop pointing fingers and get over yourself
Cuz if you won't get over it you're going to break someone else
 
You can lie to yourself and go into denial
But I know the skeletons in your closet make quite the pile
It's like you're walking backwards with your finger pointed at anyone but you
But remember when you've got one finger pointed, the rest point back at, well, you know who
 
There was a time you were worth everything, but that time is long gone
Cuz you're too stubborn to admit you were wrong
I've learned that pointing fingers never helped anyone
Because shifting the blame doesn't change what's been said and done
 
I should let go, move on with my life
But I let you stab me in the back and I refuse to return the knife
Say whatever you want, I've heard it all before
No matter how much you point your finger, you can't hurt me anymore
 
One last thing I'd like to say before I'm done
In the end, I know for sure that I've won
Because unlike you, I didn't resort to denying the truth
That when your point your finger at someone else, four point back at you
