"Coming To Terms" as written by Tobias Erik Karlsson and Chad Wolfinbarger....
Oh no, it's not me
I just forgot to tell you
Didn't mean, it seems obscene
We just lost track along the way

I'm coming to terms
I'm starting to learn
This ain't all it's cracked up to be
Cause I'm using you, you're using me
It's never as easy as we believe

Cause this hurts, I can't leave
I understand, but can you
I'm just scared, you're lonely
Everyone knows you're better than me

I'm coming to terms
I'm starting to learn
This ain't all it's cracked up to be
Cause I'm using you, you're using me
It's never as easy as we believe

Is this what you need?
Am I what you need?

I'm coming to terms
I'm starting to learn
This ain't all it's cracked up to be
Cause I'm using you, you're using me
It's never as easy as we believe

Na na na na...

    General CommentI think I agree with lyricalrockstar-- This definitely sounds like a friends with benefits relationship causing a mental dilemma. The singer is realizing the relationship isn't healthy anymore and not as "easy as [they] believed"

    Song MeaningI'd say this is about two people who aren't meant to be together, but they can't leave each other because they don't want to be alone.

    Such a good song though.

    "this aint all its cracked up to be"it use to make me feel really good but now iot just hurts and it hurts my friends........
    "Oh no, its not me I just forgot to tell you" i just recently told my closest froend and my boyfriend that i cut myself.....
    "Cause this hurts, I cant leave" i cut myself really bad but i just couldnt quit no matter how hard i would try.........
