To the boy who should've loved me
from the boy you could've had.
I promised not to send this letter,
I wouldn't want you to feel bad,
for not opening your heart to me
for your unavailability.

I guess you're not required to like me,
but did you fake it just to spite me?

Well here's a little string-a-long song for you
Just give up your pride, your past, your pain, your fear of intimacy
and string along with me too

Thanks for leading me on
but this time I'm going to be stong -
Although your disinterest kind of came as a surprise, 'cause
you could see the sin and the sadness
and taste the gin and the madness
on my lips and in my eyes, well

I can't help that I wanna see you again.
But it takes two to start a string-a-long song
and only one to make it end.

Well the Flake Syndrome is an epidemic
that spans the globe from town to town.
But I can't figure out why you put forth such an effort
to win me over just to turn me down.
'Cause your words are so soft and sweet,
but your actions are screaming.
And if you see me waiting around for you,
I hope you also see you're dreaming.


And here's a little String-a-long song for you.
Just give up your pride, your past, your pain, your fear of intimacy
and string-a-long with me too.

Thanks for leading me on
but this time I'm gonna be strong-
Although your disinterest kind of came as a surprise, 'cause
you could see the sin and the sadness
and taste the gin and the madness
on my lips, and in my eyes, well

I can't help that I wanna see you again.
But it takes two to start a string-a-long song
and only one to make it end.

I know he'll break my heart.
I know I'll fall apart and
I know because this is how it starts.
Maybe it's wrong of me
to wish that we could be,
but your kiss matched mine
so perfectly.

So here's a little String-a-long song for you.
Just give up your pride, your past, your pain, your fear of intimacy
and string-a-long with me too.

Thanks for leading me on,
but this time I'm gonna be strong-
I wish you weren't too scared to speak your goodbyes, 'cause
the truth is I wish you well, thanks for saving me from hell.
I owe you one of the few I got left of my nine lives, well

I can't help that I wanna see you again.
But it takes two to start a string-a-long song
and only one to make it end.

    General Commenti love this song...hence my name on here.
    i wish i could start some in-depth conversation about this song but his writing is pretty self explanatory, it's just so damned relatable.
