How was I to know
What was wrong with you
When you kept it to yourself,
Feeling tortured, needing help?
So you said you were so unsure
Of how you felt
But you said you were in love,
How could that not be enough?
So you kept making me feel like
Every single thing's my fault.

When I've been trying so damn hard to be
Everything you want from me
You said that I'd be fine,
I disagree
'Cause I've seen all the things you hid from me
They filled my life with jealousy
If you wanted blood I'd cut myself in three
Instead you've broken me.

Contemplating life without you here
I took your picture off the wall,
Watch the ashtray getting full, and so I
Walk through empty rooms that smell of you,
Find the tape you made for me
Spelling out how life should be,
If only you were listening closer
Maybe you would understand,

That I've been trying so damn hard to be
Everything you want from me.
You said that I'd be fine,
I disagree.
'Cause I've seen all the things you hid from me
They filled my life with jealousy
If you wanted blood I'd cut myself in three

Did you ever know, did you, ever, ever know,
What it took to love you?
Now you'll never know what you had,
By/but (?) letting go.
Now you're on your own where you've only got you.
Now you're on your own where you've only got you.

I've been trying so damn hard to be
Everything you want from me.
You said that I'd be fine,
I disagree
'Cause I've seen all the things you hid from me
They filled my life with jealousy
If you wanted blood I'd cut myself in three
Instead you've broken me

    Memory I'm surprised at this coming from Matt Willis. It's kinda different from what I'm used to hearing from him, but it's fucking good. And it describes a painful relationship I was in recently. It's perfect
