"What You Deserve" as written by Cristian Machado, Dave Chavarri, Jardel Paisante, Lazaro Pina and Ahrue Ilustre....
It's too bad that you have made mistakes.
Too bad that I cannot relate.
When all else fails
When all else fades.
I kept my way through bitter days
(through bitter days)

What you don't know.
Won't leave a scar.
What you don't know.
Hasn't killed you so far.

What you don't know.
Is who you are.
I just give you something to talk about.
What you don't know.

It's too late that now.
I've changed my mind.
Too late somehow.
To recognize

When all else fails
When all I fight.
I hold my words.
And leave all the time.
(Just lost in time)

What you don't know.
Won't leave a scar.
What you don't know.
Hasn't killed you so far.

What you don't know.
Is who you are.
I just give you something to talk about.

So you lost yourself.
Turn to someone else.
And you can't give up your will to want to know.
Then you find yourself.

And you're someone else.
In the end you only get what you deserve.
(What you deserve)

What you don't know.
Won't leave a scar.
What you don't know.
Hasn't killed you so far.

What you don't know.
Is who you are.
I just give you something to talk about.
What you don't know.

    General Commentin the booklet it says that:
    When all else fails
    When all I fight.
    I hold my words.
    And leave all the time.

    is when all else fails
    and all i find
    are all my words
    perdido (lost) in time

    General Comment''What you don't know.
    Won't leave a scar.
    What you don't know.
    Hasn't killed you so far.''
    my bf broke up with me. even tho i loved him i cheated on him a couple of times, cause i just felt like i need to hurt him 'cause he just like..ignored me. and then...when we broke up, i asked him, what would he do, and he said that it'll kill him, and that he would have been very dissapointed in me. so ya i still love him, even tho i'äm so so mad at him, because of he brokeing up with me.
    so anyways, he hurt me sooooo badly, so that the guy who i cheated him with, went to ma ex bf, and like knocked him out, and told that we went out couple of times, and kissed, and that he's in love with me.
    si like my ex bf lost it
    so here comes this part:
    ''So you lost yourself.
    Turn to someone else.
    And you can't give up your will to want to know.
    Then you find yourself.
    And you're someone else.
    In the end you only get what you deserve.
    (What you deserve)''
    and then he like told me that we should get back together, that he still loves me, and i can say, he really does, but i blew him off, cause i was sooo hurt, and now he got what he deserved, and he's like now someone else, his so-so sad, and he's calling me all the time.
    so anyways. i won!
    awesome song

    General Comment“What you deserve” is a song for the person who is an abuser without thinking if he hurt anybody while he is doing something. This song shows what will happen if you are being attacked by “karma”. All the bad things you did from the people you have hurt will have their payback…
    Listen closely to the song and see the video of it and you will realize what im talking about.
