A perfect cancer was spreading and twisting
You start explaining and I'll stop pretending
That all of my actions are for you
And all of my heartache is from...

All that I needed was a life
Cause all that I found in you was a lie
All that I asked for was some time
Damn it all I love you
But, you're unkind

You gave your body to all who were willing
And took these pleasures that I wasn't filling
And everything sacred to me
Just adds to the heaving when I breathe.

So all that I needed was a life
Cause all that I found in you was a lie
And all that I asked for was some time
Damn it all I love you
But, you're unkind
To me you're unkind
To me... (and now we come clean)

Even though you had been used before I saved myself for you
But the contents of my stomach fell when I was told the truth
After one last desperation I begged you for some time
God damn it all
I loved you and you were unkind

She said all that I needed was a life
Cause all that I found in you was a lie
And all that I asked for was some time
Damn it all!
Damn it all!
But your un...

So, all that I needed was a life
Cause all that I found in you was a lie
yeah all that I asked for was some time
Damn it all I love you
But, you're unkind
So all that I needed was a life
Cause all that I found in you was a lie
yeah all that I asked for was some time
Damn it all I love you
But, you're....
Your unkind to me..
To, me..

But damn it all I love you and you're un...

    General CommentIt sounds like he was saving himself for this girl, even though he knew she hadn't saved herself for him. Even though he still loves her, he was really hurt by her actions (possibly sleeping around and cheating on him because he won't sleep with her).

    This song's chords sound somewhat similar to Shallow. Maybe the two songs are about the same girl.

    General Comment"Damn it all, I love you but you're unkind."

    Loves great, isn't it?

    "You gave your body to all who were willing, and took these pleasures that I wasn't filling."

    Personally, that last line affects me the most. There's nothing worse than losing someone to someone else because you just weren't good enough no matter how good you thought you were....

    General Commentit seems to me about a one way relationship between lovers.

    he gave everything he had emotionaly all of his feelings and time to this person.
    the problem was all he gave was emotion there was no sexual relationship
    or at the least not a healthy one therefore he wasn't forefilling his lovers
    needs sexualy as a result his counterpart
    "gave your body to all who were willing" and lied about it, this torn him apart insideall in all a very
    he expresses that as hos lover being "unkind".
    he felt that he just needed more time either have sex or learn and satisfy his lover.
    all in all a very sad and painfully honest song.

    and after everything he still loves this person.

    General Commentif you listen closely at 1:24 you can hear a woman saying "i love you so much". this same voice and comment can be heard at the end of House Carpenter (after the rainstorm portion of the song).
