And my heart left my chest
So forgive me
As you leave to find that next something new
But I can't for the life of me remember when
You changed your words from "I love you"
To saying you don't know

Just know that you can't take back what you said
Darling, I'm not in the forgiving mood
You kept on replying
It was all in my head
Well you're just a liar
And I've got the proof
I've got the proof

So with these few words, you'll erase me
Two years of our lives meant nothing to you
But this fool you have made of me has a lesson learned
You can't trust a lover
Who was never a friend
The end

Just know that you can't take back what you said
Darling, I'm not in the forgiving mood
You kept on replying
It was all in my head
Well you're just a liar
And I've got the proof
I've got the proof

Oh, I would have offered my life
Taken you home, made you my wife
But hearing you now
Filling your mouth with a coward's lies
You're just a disguise of the girl of my dreams
But I know she's waiting for me
So I'll open my eyes to the day that's before me
And leave here to find that next something new

    General CommentAt first when i heard this song on the end of the question deluxe edition, i kinda skipped it. It had poor production and the rhyming is fairly simple when it does rhyme. However, for some reason, some days later, i had "so with these few words you'll erase me" and it made me come back to this song, and since then, i have loved it and i love every part of the song now. Emery has an honesty that few compare to. So many relationships end on such a sudden note, as if nothing ever happened (and i know from experience) but as the phrase goes "a friendship that can cease has never been real." This is basically a mature way of showing the disbelief of things that have gone on in the relationship.
    Such as where he says "i can't for the life of me remember when you changed your words from i love you to i don't know." I think that's referring to how people can tell you that they love you, but it's really a matter of trust.

    General Commenti can relate to this song so much...
    at the moment, it's lyrics are the only thing that keeps me sane.
    i can especially relate to the line that says
    "And my heart left my chest
    So forgive me
    As you leave to find that next something new
    But I can't for the life of me remember when
    You changed your words from I love you..."

    It makes me cry, but it helps, you know...

    General CommentMan, when he says "I know she's waiting for me" it almost made me cry cause it's totally hard sometimes to be patient and wait for "the One" and believe that they're "waiting" for me too.....(sigh) such a good song...

    General CommentAmazing song! Such honesty and reality that it makes up so it's lack of "bells and whistles"...in fact, this song is so much better with out all the added junk cuz it IS so real. Anyway, it's obviously about his girlfriend of two years that suddenly broke it off and he didn't know why and he was crushed cuz he had planned to marry her, and it ends with him looking to a brighter better future. The part "I would have offered my life, taken you home, made you my wife" KILLS me everytime I hear it, it's so heartfelt! And that's what makes this song amazing!

    General CommentQuick question, can anyone tell me if this is a true story for him? If not, it's still really painful to hear and imagine, but if it is...then wow, that's even more painful. I know my brother can relate to this part:

    "i can't for the life of me remember when you changed your words from i love you to i don't know."

    Because it's weird sometimes, people will abruptly end relationships with little or sometimes no explanation at all, and that has happened plenty of times to my brother. :\
    And it happens so fast and out of nowhere, it's like you can't even remember when the transition was made from "I love you" to "I don't know about us".
