Didn't I tell you to leave it all behind
Didn't I tell you to let it slip your mind
Didn't I tell you to let it fade away
Didn't I tell you that some day you'll be ok

Now I know love can turn to hate in the blink of an eye
Another lie another alibi
When your curtain fell heaven turned to hell
What was real I could never tell

I wish I would have known
Wish I would have seen
I wish I'd had some lines to read between
I just can't understand why you cared to stay
You never truly loved me anyway
I just can't understand

Didn't I tell you to leave it all behind
Didn't I tell you to hide all things you find
Didn't I tell you to let it slip away
Didn't I tell you to do all you can to be ok

I never thought love could turn to hate in the blink of an eye
And without you it would have passed me by
And heaven turned to hell when your curtain fell
What was real I still can't tell

I wish I would have seen
Wish I would have known
I wish I wouldn't have to feel alone
I just can't understand why you cared to stay
You never truly loved me anyway
I just can't understand

    General CommentIt's just like these lyrics were written by me, with my ex in the back of my mind. All the words are so extremely appropriate to that situation I found myself in with her.
