"Heartless" as written by and Carter....
How can you stand there and look me in the eye?
Tell me that you knew it was coming for us
I know that you said I was all you ever wanted
But you pushed me overboard
Into knee deep water
And you didn't throw the anchor of hope
You pushed me overboard
Without concern for what I was feeling inside
Heartless intentions
Your favourite game to play
I knew that I was never good enough to make you smile
Still you play these games, you ruin me from the inside
Tearing me down
I can't hide
I can't not act torn about this
What can I do to make you see?
How it affects me, so deeply still
I'm untouched from your point of view

    General CommentThis is definitely about a break up!
    Its like the one side knew they were going to split up yet they tried nothing to stop it "How can you stand there and look me in the eye?, Tell me that you knew it was coming for us"
    The other half is totally upset and torn about it yet he also knew it was going to happen "I knew that I was never good enough to make you smile"
    "What can I do to make you see?, How it affects me, so deeply still"
