I missed the train to Boston,
Now I'm left in the cold.
I never wanted this to end,
And now you've got a new boyfriend.

He says he loves you better,
Than I will ever do.
And will you say you love him too?

I can't make up for a past mistake.
But you know I'm gonna' keep on trying.
The world used to be hard to take.
Can't you see that now...
I'm dying.


Another poke in my mind.
That's to an empty hole.
I thought I'd be with you forever.
Can't stand living on my own.

Such a minor setback.
The memories all it took.
You think he's "Mr. Perfect",
And you can't forget I'm gone.

I can't make up for a past mistake.
But you know I'm gonna' keep on trying.
The world used to be hard to take.
Can't you see that now...
I'm dying.


My thoughts too grim for that.
You're never coming back.
All those chances taken,
Never thinking it would ever come to that.

You moved on to better things.
And all the misery is played.
Though me, I only want the best for you...
For you!

I can't make up for a past mistake.
But you know I'm gonna' keep on trying.
The world used to be hard to take.
Can't you see that now...
I'm dying.

    General CommentI agree with BlackLungFever. this song is pretty straight forward, a guy is dumped, his girl has a new guy and he's a wreck. he knows its a mistake but fuck it, why give up?
