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

Wait, please don't go
I won't stay
All these words on replay
I'm okay
It's all right
Good to know that you're fine

Pretending everything is right to make it better
I'll hide my make-up smeared eyes
To show that I'm fine

Some how you have managed to get under my skin
More than anyone ever did
And if every hole 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 I'll forget you
I'll wash your t-shirt and kill the pillow
And cut you out of pictures

Wait, please don't go
I won't stay
All these words on replay
I'm okay
It's all right
Good to know that you're fine

Pretending everything is right to make it better
I'll hide my make-up smeared eyes

This drama sat shotgun
My eyes rained like autumn
Only the glove box knows how the story goes
Now that this bandage is broken
And the cuts left in open
I'll tell you just one thing
This wasn't worth the sting (x3)

    General Commenti think its about a girl who's trying to make the best of her life after a break up, but she cant really move on, and isnt over the guy, and shes trying to act strong by hiding her crying

    General Commenti love this song. its beautiful.
    to me, this song is about a girl who is kinda in a relationship but the boy doesnt want to be serious and just wants to muck around. she holds back her feelings (which is killing her to do) because she knows its not worth it and she will just get hurt.
    just an opinion.

    General CommentAhh, i love Automatic Loveletter.
    Alright so basically,

    This song is about a girl who REALLY fell for a guy,
    and even though she knew her feelings were much deeper for him than as for what he shared for her, or perhaps he just with her 'cause he had nothing better to do (We only made out, you never kissed me)
    So she had a feeling the entire time that he felt this way....maybe she was a rebound?
    Anyways, so she's trying to get over him, yet she still loves him and she's totally mixed up. She wants him back,
    (Please don't go
    i won't stay

    Shes a wreck, but tries to look strong by hiding her feelings, or "Make-up Smeared Eyes"
