"Aftertaste" as written by Benjamin Michael Lee and Juanita Stein....
And it's none of my business,
I got a weakness
Can I beat this?
The autumn leaves
Falling in the breeze
Are not my fault
There's a storm over yonder
You gotta wonder
What it's all about
Destiny was never up to me
And it's not my fault,
Your love's like salt

[Chorus]
The aftertaste is gonna break my heart
Feels like it's over before it starts
The aftertaste is gonna break my heart

And I really didn't need this
Don't want to be this
Don't want to see this
I'm fallin' in,
I'm going there again
And it's not my fault
Are you sick of pretending?
That all this trouble is really ending
The way things break
Every step you take
Is not my fault
Your love's like salt

[Chorus]

Your love's like salt

[Chorus: x2]

    General Commentwow no one has commented on this song. its really good so you have to go listen to it now. i really like his voice. its cool. its kinda slow but its still awesome. its about this girl who's not a good girlfriend. he is just being truthful to himself even though its hard hes realizing he cant be with her.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my relationship. My girl dumped me a month ago because she though it would fix her problems. She had a lot of crap going on then (and still does). She now doesn't want to talk to me or even explain her excuse for breaking up. I still love her, but like the song says "It's not my fault", and she needs to understand that. Also, this after period of our relationship is killing me "The after taste is going to break my heart." I wish we could be together, but "destiny was never up to me". It "feels like it's over before it starts." Rawr this song is awesome! It makes me feel better, oddly.

    General Commentbasically, it's about a bad relationship. i was in a relationship where both of us were in really bad places in our lives, and we were constantly blaming the other for our own problems. i feel like this song describes our relationship. there are just too many thigns that we couldn't control, and there was absolutely nothing we could do to make eachother okay.
    by the way, if it were anyone's fault, it was mine.
