You can go kill yourself, don't matter to me
since i've finally put you out of my misery
I don't love you either, it only hurts when I breathe
I always knew you'd leave me, let you string me a long
I pretended to believe you so that I could write this song
I'll get along, you'll see it only hurts when I breathe

And if i ever said forever, I stand corrected
disappointment is the price I paid for hope.
love's a bloody wreck, just like I expected.
I won't hold my breath waiting for you to come home


I'm happy alone, I like these four walls
I'll sit by the phone, making sure that you don't call.
I don't care at all, you'll see it only hurts when i breathe.

...

And if I ever said forever, I stand corrected and alone
love's a bloody wreck, just like I expected
I won't hold my breath waiting for you to come home

I'm doing OK, got no complaints,
I know you're no angel, god knows that I ain't no saint
I'm feeling no pain, not me. it only hurts when I breathe.
believe what you want to believe
I'm finally, actually, totally agony free, except.

    General Commenti love these lyrics. Keeping up an act while you're hurting inside... Keeping your image alive, pretending to be the tough guy, but on the inside...

    General Commentthis song describes how I feel right now..even though the break-up was "mutual"..I really wanted to just hold on..I kinda just agreed on it. Even though it was for the best I guess...
