Left your t-shirt in my room, still smells of you
And the picture you hung on the door lay smashed, picture perfect.
Explains now, clearly nothing left but a memory
We only made out you never kissed me that's how I learned to hold back all feeling

Pre Chorus: Wait, please don't go, I won't stay. All these words on replay. I'm ok, Its alright, good to know that your fine.

Chorus: Pretending everything is right, to make it better.
I'll hide my make up smeared eyes, to show that I tried.

Verse 2: Some how you have managed to get under my skin, more than anyone ever did.
And if every whole makes a scar and every scar marks its place then I will never live freely without your trace.
And it'll never be fair, I wrote my songs for you and you never even cared.
So Ill forget you, Ill wish your t-shirt, kill the pillow and cut you out of pictures
Pre Chorus: Wait, please don't go, I won't stay. All these words on replay. I'm ok, Its alright, good to know that your fine.

Chorus: Pretending everything is right, to make it better. I'll hide my make up smeared eyes...

Bridge: And this drama filled fest all my fault I guess. But you told me prêt endings for the best. And I held out as far as I could go. Do you miss me Id really like to know, that you're left with a feeling I let go.
Your left with a feeling I let go, you are just a feeling I let gooooooo.

    General CommentTotally an obsessive song anyone can relate to...I love it...It totally reminds me of one of my relationships when the guy I was with had to go to Iraq...we broke up and then he was telling me how he was going to talk to me and stuff then realize hes with someone else already totally sucked, he forgot one of his shirts in my room and it seriously still smells like him but anyways enough about me this is an awesome song she totally rocks my socks off! she can relate to anyone its so sad how someone can mean so much and you don't want them to go but in the end when they do you feel its your fault and you cry over it but then you realize that you were totally better off that what I think this song is really saying but she will always have those feelings for him and never did want him to leave her in the end.

    General Commentabout a girl who loved this boy maybe her ex boyfriend who came back in the picture .. and she never realized how meaningless she really was in his head. maybe he used her up to the pt where she just couldnt take it anymore and she let him for so long because of the hope he rubbed off on her , but then she realizes that to him, she's just worthless. she wants to make him think she is so strong by telling him " ill forget you " but then she says to herslef, wait please dont go i love you. ..
