I can't see for these tears have blinded by my eyes.
I can't breathe cause these lungs are empty.
I feel like I have failed.
How could I have failed you so effortlessly?
I was suppose to make your sunshine.
I was suppose to make you smile.
And now I can't even see.
I want to escape from being so ordinary.
I just want to stand up and scream.
Oh my God!!!
They said that we would never be.
When did you stop listening to me!?
Are you telling me that you listened, honestly!?
And now I am forsaken by a traitor.
So now there is no more you and me.
I wanted to take you from this world.
Escape the hatred and betrayal.
I was meant to make you smile.
I was meant to take you from here.
I have failed you.
You have failed me.
You listened to them, honestly!?
We could have ran from this world that kept us apart.
Baby, I wish you would have never listened to a word that they said.
I take a moment to ponder about things, I wish you would have gave me another chance.
I would have taken all the time in the world to prove them wrong.
Your knife, my chest.
My blood, your dress.
Stitch it up!
I'll bite my lip and fake it!
I'll say you never meant a thing, anything.
I gave you the world, and a diamong ring.
You listened to them, when you should have listened to me.
I can't see for the tears in my eyes.
Broken heart, deception, I'll stitch it up with a few more lies.
We could have been far from ordinary.
We could have had the world, but we have the contrary.
So now this is over, the world has me on my knees.
I'll bite my lip, i'll fake it, and say you didn't mean a thing.
Still so pretty, you're beauty illuminates this place.
I'll light a cigarette and watch this whole world burst into flames.
