And tell me about the one that broke your heart;
Tell me when the day was, through
did you feel like you?

And all the things that you wished you had said,
that linger around inside your head.
Until you are dead... yeah.

You know it's just been so long since I gave my heart away,
But I was going to today.
Was going to pick up the pieces and throw them away
Say "goodbye" to all my mistakes,
Start living the life that got in the way,
All the plans for me that you made (oh the plans), the plans you made.

I waited around even from before.
You wanted it all, and I gave you... more
Than I could afford.

I chose to believe you even from the start.
Could handle your lies, ya know they weren't that hard,
But you told me apart.

You said it's just been so long,
since you thought of me that, way.
You wanna start again today. (Yeah)

You wanna pick up the pieces and
put them into place, 'til they resemble something you'll make.
You wanna make up through the lies, take off all the disguises.
Start living a life in a way, I don't think-, I don't think... about you. Anymore.

I don't think
I don't think
About you...

Ya know it's just been so long since I let you treat me that way.
..and I'm not going to let you start today.

Gunna pick up the pieces and put them in place, say "Goodbye" to my biggest mistake.

No more than me, it's my self esteem, gunna start living the way that I won't think. No, I won't think... about you. Anymore.

    General CommentThe title is Life in a way. The lyrics are a little off but this song is great anyway. I think the song is about a guy who has given up everything for a girl and she still messes up everything so hes trying to go back to the way he was before her.
