Look me in the eye
When you tell me you don't love me
It'll help you feel the pain you're trying to ignore
I'm not afraid to die
But I'm scared to death I'll lose you
Your fragrance slowly fades from my shoulder

Is this what love feels like, when it's over?
I wish to god I didn't know
I wish to god I didn't care
Is this what blood feels like, when it runs colder?
I wish that I could sleep
I wish that I was hers

And so this is goodbye
My heart tells me it's over
The drive helps ease the pain
I wish that god was closer
Resolved to say goodbye
So don't try me

I want your love
Not your pity

Is this what love feels like, when it's over?
I wish to god I didn't know
I wish to god I didn't care
Is this what blood feels like, when it runs colder?
I wish that I could sleep
I wish that I was hers

They say time heals all
Well that may ring true for some
But they haven't felt your blade

Is this what love feels like, when it's over?
I wish to god I didn't know
I wish to god I didn't care
Is this what blood feels like, when it runs colder?
I wish that I could sleep
I wish that I was hers

    General Commentthis is my favorite song.
    I think it's about a guy who still is in love with this girl, but is trying to convince himself he isn't.

    sadly, he is.
    "I want your love
    Not your pity"
    He doesn't want the girl to feel bad, he just wants her to love him.
