Why do you have to make it worse?

Just that one simple yet powerful word
which will never ever be heard.
You wrote it in the letter.
'cos you couldn't say it right to my face.
Give me that Sunday School answer.
Repent yourself away.

Does it hurt to know that I'll never be there?
Bet it sucks to see my face everywhere.
It was you who chose to end it like you did.
I was the last to know.
You knew exactly what you would do.
Don't say you simply lost your way.
They may believe you but I never will.
Never again.

Goodbye to you

Let him know that you know best
'Cos after all you do know best.
Try to slip past his defence
without granting innocence.
Lay down a list of what is wrong
the things you've told him all along
and pray to God that he hears you...

He didn't.

Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend.
Somewhere along in the bitterness.
I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life.

Last song I'm wasting on you

Here's the thing, we started out friends. It was cool, it was all pretend.
I dedicated, we took our time. It wasn't long till I called you mine.
But I never hear you say, 'I just wanna be with you.' Guess you never felt that way.
Then again, all you'd ever hear me say is how I picture me with you.
That's all you'd ever hear me say...

But you know what?

Since you've been gone, I can breathe for the first time. I'm so moving on.
Thanks to you, now I get what I want. You should know that I get what I want.

Forget you and goodbye!

No direction

All day staring at the ceiling,
making friends with shadows on my wall.
All night hearing voices telling me
that I should get some sleep because
tomorrow might be good for something.

Talking to myself in public,
dodging glances on the train.
I know they've all been talking about me.
I can hear them whisper and it makes me
think there must be something wrong with me.

Out of all the hours thinking,
somehow I've lost my mind.
Feeling like I'm heading for a breakdown
and I don't know why.

I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell.
I know right now you can't tell.
Stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
a different side of me.
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired.
I know right now you don't care.
Soon enough you're gonna think of me
and how I used to be.
