i only wanna say things that are pure: now i won't be talking anymore.
i only wanna do things that are true. every time i move i'm hurting you.

i wanna know what is it that you do
to keep from hurting anyone but you?

cause i still say your name when i don't feel right, just like i used to
and if most people fade to gray and black, you'll fade to light blue.

i think too much and then start talking mean.
where did i get all these selfish genes?
best friends, i'm a bad best friend.

i'll meet you today when no-one is watching.
we'll throw our money away, i'll meet you today.

    General CommentListen to "Selfish Jean" by Travis. I always think of it as a response to this song.

    General CommentIt sucks when you lose a friend and you realize that you are the one that fucked up. And you cant swallow your pride and say sorry.

    General Commenti guess im the worst best friend ever, even though im not the one blame... no one is, actually... but the point is, im the one who causes pain... fuck, i never wanted things to turn out this way. saying that you`re sorry, doesnt always help...even though it has nothing to do pride.

    General Commenti think he has finally realized the asshole he has been "im a bad best friend".. and whatever hes saying and doing that is constantly hurting someone that is supposed to be his best friend he wont do anymore "i only wanna say things that are pure, i only want to do things that are true" because he has truely realized how special this person is.."cause i still say your name when i don't feel right, just like i used to" (he still needs this person to help him through hard times) "where most people fade gray and black you'll fade to light blue" (this person is unique and should be appreciated.)
