the tears are warm
I'm washing off last night
I wish I would've slept through it
I wish I didn't know what you did
one signle though
going over and over in my mind
I don't own you
and you don't owe me a goddamn thing

but I wish it was me
it's never been, it'll never be
you can say that it didn't mean a thing
but it means everything and it's killing me

oh, well, here's to luck
I could walk away now and forget
your name, your face
and forget how much it hurts
but I never forget that I love you
and I would never forget I could never have you
this all means something
this means I give up

and I don't about you
and I don't give a fuck who you fuck
and when the one you left for leaves you
I won't come back

    General Commentthis song is so awesome. i can't believe no one's commented on it. I just recently got fucked over by a girl and a "friend" and this song is kinda how i want to feel. Just not always that easy.

    General CommentFor me, this song describes how I lost my virginity... the guy didn't care as much as I did. Even the title "Gave it away" is like giving your virginity to someone. "It's never been, it'll never be" that part kills me, it reminds me that he never wanted me and just fucked me and left me three months later.

    General Commentah, the memories. This reminds me of a very bad breakup. I'm still not over him. It's been a year. Every word in this song reminds me of him.
