Lipgloss And Letdown - Lyrics by A Static Lullaby

Blind to the answers,
Find yourself,
Walk for the moment,
Find the reason in yourself,
Theres a reason for you and i,
Take this time to find a meaning,A reason to sit back and measure the worst 6 years of my life,
Waiting for your legs to close on my best friends,
Last night I saw your life flash before my eyes,
Why did I laugh so hard baby? (you won't be back and I'm still laughing) I never meant to hurt you(but I did) I'm sorry that you cried so hard darling,I'll never hurt you again, take this time to find your tongue,A sorry excuse to stop your lies,
The best 30 seconds of my life,
My angel take your pills,
My angel I sold your ring,
And now I can't stop laughing,I didnt want it this way,I hope you're happy where you are and I'm glad to say I put you there,
Who's the one that's laughing now,I'm the one who's laughing now(now theres nothing left to say I hope you're feeling my embrace,
And I can't sleep) you should have left me sleeping,
You should have let me sleep...
