im a wanter

just walk out the front door, leave with him and let me be
let me collapse on to the floor, i'll stay down with the dust and mold
and i'll pour out my guts through my eyes and i'll let them creep out on to this chinese rug

last night i stripped out my teeth, because they were never what you wanted
you could never wear me like you wanted

maybe if i set myself on fire on your front yard
would you care then? would i look better then?

i guess i'll drink bottles of alcohol and swallow handfuls of those little white pills
to make myself explode

like empty beaches that stretch for miles i'll scream and no one will hear
and i'll perfect, i'll be beautiful, and i won't be me.

    General Comment"and I'll be perfect. I'll be beautiful. Oh, I'll be perfect. I'll be beautiful, I won't be me." is very much intense.

    It's that feeling when you've poured all you could in efforts, hopes, wills, and constrained hatred to try to make that one relationship work, but it never does and instead, "she" goes with him and seems to be so much better off. It's like that other guy didn't even try to get her and he tried all he could and never did.

    Love is selfish, but come on.
    Sometimes, all you ever really need is that special someone.
    Thus, "I'm A Wanter".

    Shout it out, boy. Angry shouts. Lonely shouts. Regret shouts, confusion shouts.......... on those
    "empty beaches that stretches for miles"...........
