Maybe I'm not ready for this, and you know it.
Maybe I'm too scared to tell you what I'm really thinking
It's not fair to stay together because of regrets we might have.
I don't want to fall asleep alone, but do I want to wake up with you?
I'm only trying to be completely honest.

So I guess this is the ending or a beautiful mistake.
And if we both agree that we shouldn't be together why does it hurt so much?
I feel like I lost my closest friend.
I don't want to fall asleep alone, but do I want to wake up with you?
I hope you're happy and completely lonely.

There I am standing all alone on Sydney Harbor Bridge.
And you know I would jump into the fucking ocean if it meant I was truly capable of being satisfied.
Well I ever be?
Did I just give up the best thing I ever had?

I don't want to fall asleep alone, but do I want to wake up with you?
I hope you're happy and completely lonely.
I don't want to fall asleep alone, but do I want to wake up with you?
I'm only trying to be completely honest.

    General Commentthis song totally explains how i feel right now. i broke up with my boyfriend(we were together for 6 mounths) a couple of mounths ago and its been really hard lately. he was my best friend and i could tell him anything. while going out with him i drifted with all my friends cuz i was always with him. but when we broke up he got pissed off. he told me he hated me, wished i were dead, told me to go kill myself and believe me i was about to, i wanted to. so now i dont know what to think. i get really sad and confused all the time cuz i have no one to talk to anymore and everyone just seemed to dislike me. i cut my wrists too cuz i have no ather way to dull the pain. i miss him a lot but he has really hurt me. i dont kno if i still love him, hate him, miss him, need him or what. this song pretty much describes how i feel sort of in a way i dont kno.

    Why when you break up with someone, you always have this question in ur head? I couldn't write this song any better, it's indeed a great song.

    General CommentAtarisLesPaul... u rock... people always spill their bullshit on here... do we really need to hear it? i think not.... this is a music site not friggin sally jesse!

    anyways the ataris kick ass! this song is great because the lyrics are so real. the best line is ... " i hope ur happy and completely lonely" sums it up completely
