I know we can talk about it later
And I know; nothing really to discuss
I know that I've got my little way of
Complicating us

Ooh, ooh

And that is all I ever feel
Like nothing good is ever real
Do you pretend the bad is good?
I know you do; I do it, too

I know that you'd never do me wrong, babe
Even though sometimes, I wish you would
'cause I'm really good at getting hurt, babe
Not so great at feeling good

Ooh, ooh

And that is not for me to have
Maybe not always, but for now
My hand is always on my mouth
Telling me how

And that is all I ever feel
Like nothing good is ever real
Maybe just scream my name out loud
Drive it all out
Tell me how (x4)

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song! It is so beautiful.

    It's about someone who has never made the best choices when it comes to actions they take while pursuing relationships or when they are in relationships. They've finally found someone who makes them happy and they don't know how to be happy about it. They're too used to knowing how it feels to get screwed over or feeling bad about choices they have made when it comes to another person, to understand what it feels like to be appreciated.

    Beautiful
