It's time I said this but I'm so choked up
And I need my sanity
I'm scared, believe me

You can see me smile
If you let me just stick around
Well this is bye, bye, baby

It ended up like a sudden stop on a freight train
If you're not happy and you hurt this much
Then let me just stick around

Can I have one second of your time?
'Cause if I don't it'll drive me crazy
As I drop to my knees
And scream I hate you more than you could know

I hope you fall into the ocean
And the current leaves you helpless, swimming around
As the waves crash over you until drown and float away

We'll hold a funeral for nothing
And celebrate how empty love can be broken
It takes the sea to put you six feet happily underground

Now it's back to reality
I'm left in shambles but I guess that's how I should be
I knew the wedding bells were ringing loud but my bride was missing

No, it's not supposed to hurt this much
But when someone slowly breaks it off
It tends to leave a bitter taste
A scar, that slowly rips apart

I've had enough but it's all for the best
I need to get a few things off my chest

There's got to be another way I can say it
But to get it right, I have to think straight

I hope he tasted like the way I used to taste
I can't believe I'd even say this to you now
When you won't listen at all.
