This is what you wanted
So this is what you're getting
A knife in your back (Are you ready for this?)
Am I the promise you can't make?
Or still the feeling you can't fake
Here's your last chance to have a hand in this

So sharpen up these nails
And dig them right into my chest
Tell me what you find
Though its not what you'd expect

For all the blood thats been spilt
For all the pain thats been felt
You took the best of me and ran with it

I begged you please
Crawling on scraped kneees
Just take some time to think this over
It could have been
I asked for too much
Just an explanation
On why its over

This situation is only getting worse
Everytime you open your mouth

This is what you wanted, this is what you're getting
This is what you wanted, this is what you're getting
This is what you wanted, this is what you're getting
(Here's your last chance to have a hand in this)
This is what you wanted, this is what you're getting
(Here's your last chance to have a hand in this)

Are you still just drawing lines?
Should have know they'd fade in time
Like all the moments that we've shared before
And are you ready for this?
See all your colors finally show
And are you ready for this breaking wave to wash this over?

For all the blood thats been spilt
For all the pain thats been felt
You took the best of me and ran with it

For all the blood thats been spilt
For all the pain thats been felt
You took the best of me and ran with it

For all the blood thats been spilt(This is what you wanted)
For all the pain thats been felt(This is what you're getting)
You took the best of me(This is what you wanted)
And ran with it

    General CommentThis is about a relationship where the speaker feels like the other person betrayed them, and left them. Probably, they feel like they got used, hence "you too the best of me." And since the other person did it voluntarily, "this is what you wanted."
    The second verse, "though its not what you'd expect." probably describes how they dont view things the same, maybe the heart they once had has been altered due to the break up.


    I love this song. ^_^
