Could you know what I was thinking, so I wouldn't have to speak?
Did you ever understand me?
Did you care enough to see?
Was it when I made you smile you decided you would leave?
You're so turned on by tragedy.
Ii'm broke in two so come love me.
I know it now; I've been such a fool.
Your words are all I had, but even those were meaningless, a shortcut to my head.
I wish I could have been the one to break your heart instead.
Everything you asked me for I gave, and then you wanted more.
Did you know that I existed, or ever even notice me?
Did you ever take the time to think of what you'd do to me?
Everything I ever needed was everything you couldn't be.

    General Commentwhat a perfect way to capture the feelings of a breakup. so much confusion, so many unanswered questions, so much skepticism and regret. "i wish i could have been the one to break your heart instead" can i say any more?
