I'm not wishing anymore
I'm not writing songs for you
I sleep better in the dark
I'm not doing this for you

This is because of you I don't believe
Tongue tied an institute of my relief
You're my, my reason to shame
(my reason to shame)

I'm not wishing anymore
I'm not writing songs for you
I sleep better in the dark
I'm not doing this for you

This is because of you I don't believe
Tongue tied an institute of my relief

One wish that this is over
You are all I waste today
(discarded worthless throw it away)

Will it tear you apart?
Will it?
Will it tear you apart?

(When I turn and walk away
abandon, its not worth the effort
When Stalling means
Too fucking scared to create
abandon, its not worth the effort
When stalling and too scared)

One wish that this is over
You are all I waste today
(discarded worthless throw it away)

Will it tear you apart?
Will it?
Will it tear you apart?

When I turn and walk away
I'm not holding onto this
I'm not wasting words on you
I sleep alone in spite of it
I'll do anything for you

This is because of you I feel relief
Tongue tied to investigate what I believe
You're my, my reason to blame (my reason to blame)

I'm not holding onto this
I'm not wasting words on you
I sleep alone in spite of it
I'll do anything for you

This is because of you I feel relief
Tongue tied to investigate what I believe
You're my, my reason to blame (my reason to blame)

    General Commenti think its the fact that he hates her
    but every second he has to think its about her
    he doesnt want to be with her
    but something is telling him to be
    falling in love is easy
    its getting out thats the hard part
    and some people never get out
    loves a cage man

    General Commenti hate the internet. at 1:06, is it how its posted on songmeaning:

    "abandon, its not worth the effort
    When Stalling means
    Too fucking scared to create
    abandon, its not worth the effort
    When stalling and too scared"

    because i noticed on a different site this is how it was posted:

    "Looked back and...not worth the effort
    Stolen and chewed up, cut, scathed, and relieved
    Looked back and...not worth the effort
    You've stolen the true skin"

    because i believe it could just as well be the second one. Although i dont have the album so i dunno. maybe the correct lyrics are posted in the booklet or something. But still. amazing amazing song never the less

    General CommentThis song is definitely about a relationship ending and him hating the girl afterwards.
    In a way it's a lot how I feel after my ex-gf told me she had been cheating on me for a while.
    I thought we had something special and wonderful, but all the time it was all a lie. So...
    "I'm not wishing anymore, I'm not writing songs for you."
    (btw, I do write song lyrics of my own and FAtA has been a big inspiration to many of them.)

    General CommentThis song is perfect. I was soooo in love with a girl and the love was unrequited, yet it made me ill all the time and i'd have days off school just thinking about her and writing poems and stuff about her, then I tried to convince myself i was over her, yet ever time she'd call or text me, i'd be back where i began and i'd have done anything for her. So, this songs kinda like - i love you, but go away i hate you. hmmm, very confusing
