"Three Simple Words" as written by Alejandro M. Linares, Randy Strohmeyer, Alexander Pappas, Nathan Barcalow and Derek Doherty....
Open up my eyes, flooded with daylight
Another sleepless night turns color black and white
With all the things I've said
There is just regret, repeating in my head

Hands into a fist, static in my head
Now I'm sitting face to face with loneliness
What did I expect, did I see forever in you?

I never want it to hurt more than it should
I hope you're satisfied, I never could

Time to close my eyes, forget about this mess
And try to fix this tragic loss of innocence
But how can I forget, the things I have inside
When everything is dead?

I never want it to hurt more than it should
I hope you're satisfied, I never could
Can't you see, you left me on my own
Give me one good reason why I should let go

With my hands around your neck
Who will stop me now?

    General Commenti'm pretty sure the lyrics are...

    open up my eyes
    flooded with daylight.........


    and then later on he says

    "repeating in my head", not "a beating in my head"

    General CommentI thing it's more about how a girl left him, and he's pissed off, and thought that they had something "special".

    He gets very pissed off and then decides the world is better without her, and decides to kill her, "with my hands around your neck who will stop me now" is himself thinking about it.

    General Commentyea that whole love for the moment thing is pretty bad... i think you have to look to the title to see the where the song is coming from... i think its about a guy tellin a girl "i love you" and him thinking he wasted it on her
