Standing on my doorstep in the rain.
Make up running down your face.
You look so good right now.
It's bittersweet that you run to me.
I need you, I bleed you, I would give up breathing for you,
if you would take my breath and hold it in.
I need to be inside of you.

Show me where it hurts.
Show me what love's done to you.
Don't try to move, you'll only make it worse than it is already.
You had to be so strong and I had to be so useless.
I'm always fuckin' useless, useless without you.

Tears ran down your face like rain on the window you were looking out.
What were you looking for?
I won't ask tonight.
I need this, just one kiss, a gentle touch, your sweet caress.
My heart will break my ribs if I hold this in.
I must confess.

I hate myself for needing this.
I love our twisted little mess.
I know it's wrong but it just feels right.
The taste of tears is bittersweet tonight.

I'm scared as hell.
It's about time that I tell you all the things that you should know.
All the things I'm too scared to show.
I need you, I bleed you, I would give up breathing for you,
if you would take my breath and hold it in.

    General Commentbasicly;
    boy, in love with girl.
    girl, views boy as best freind.
    boy, still in love with girl.
    girl, broken hearted by other boys.
    boy, still in love with girl.
    girl, obvlivious to boy's love.
    boy, still in love with girl.
    girl, cries because of lack of love.
    boy, still in love with girl.
    girl, apparently the most beautiful, at her worst.
    boy, still in love with girl.
    girl, still broken hearted, oblivious, and beautiful.
    boy, writes song.
