What went wrong?
Did you even try?
You made me think that this would work all along
I should have known better
You made me try
You made me feel like I was everything
One of us has to get hurt
(Don't fall for this boy)
And the other asks, "Was it worth it this time?"
She said, "Pick one"
So I took both
(I had the look in my eyes)
The Good and the Ugly
I couldn't wait to see you
I couldn't wait to hear you
You can keep those three words wrapped up for yourself
What went wrong?
What did you see?
You looked right through me
You looked right through me
Everything meant everything to you
(I have to write you)
Everyone meant everything to you
(I hope you get the pieces of me)
I have to write you
I hope you get the pieces of me
Pen and paper is all I have
Begging you please
I'm sending you my hands and knees
Why must I try?
Why do I try?

    General CommentI have many interpretations of this song...
    But one of them, that I can relate to so well, is that it tells about breaking up between two people in a long distance relationship. =( It just wouldn't work, dude...
