With you I learned to open up
And it burned me in the end
With you I made these memories
And you filled me to the brim
With you my life was a happy blur
The spaces all filled in
With you I learned of first true love
Those scars will never mend
Now it's time I moved along
And the sorrow nearly broke me
Now I think that I was wrong
And you'll be fine without me
These memories burn me up
And as I smolder and cry
I realize how empty is the cup
Where once I drank your lies
Stop calling me, stop hurting me
I won't listen anymore
Stop smiling, stop faking it
You're rotten to the core
Callate y muevete (Shut up and go away)
I'm getting off the floor
I'll get past you, these memories
It's my turn to close the door
