This is for all the girls
Who never got to know me
And who touched these lips
But never really got a kiss

And who held my hands
And maybe even learned a few things
But unfortunately
You didn't learn a lot about me

And I tried my best to give you what
You wanted most but it wasn't enough

And short love you gave up
Too soon on me
And short love you messed up
One too many times before me

Why are you so scared
To have some insecurities?
Why are you so scared
To turn and face me?

At least look at me
I tried my best to give you what
You wanted most but it wasn't enough

And short love you gave up
Too soon on me
And short love you messed up
One too many times before me

But I'm not good with words in these kinds of situations
Now I know neither are you
So we'll forget what we just said
I'll take that back and you hold your breath
And we'll just wait and see

But you know this is the last time that you will see me
And you know this is the last time that you will see me

And short love you gave up
Too soon on me
And short love you messed up
One too many times before me

And short love you gave up
Too soon on me
And short love you messed up
One too many times before me

    General CommentI'm so disappointed that this has 1 comment.
    I think it's obviously about him saying sorry to all the short relationships he's had, that he didn't really put much effort into.
