"Got Me Wrong" as written by and Jerry Cantrell....
Yeah, it goes away
All of this and more of nothing in my life
No color clay
Individuality not safe
As of now I bet you got me wrong
So unsure you run from something strong
I can't let go

Threadbare tapestry unwinding slow
Feel a tortured brain
Show your belly like you want me to
As of now I bet you got me wrong
So unsure you run from something strong
I haven't felt like this in so long
Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love

That don't last forever
Something's gotta turn out right
You sugar taste
Sweetness doesn't often touch my face
Stay if you please
You may not be here when I leave

As of now I bet you got me wrong
So unsure we reach for something strong
I haven't felt like this in so long
Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love
Strong, I haven't felt like this in so long
Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love

That don't last forever
Something's gotta turn out right

    General CommentMan, it makes total sense to me now. No wonder I absolutely can't stop playing this song on repeat right now. I am especially drawn to the lines:

    "You, sugar taste
    Sweetness doesn't often touch my face
    Stay, if you please
    You may not be here when I leave"

    ...
    I'm leaving my first love (I'm 21). We've been together for 2 years. I'm leaving him so that I won't hurt him in the future, as I don't know what I want in life right now and I can't commit to anything. He is the only innocence and good that I know right now (and may EVER know), but we can't become further attached b/c of the potential hurt that's involved. It's SO hard to leave him, and the only way we can go about it (we agree) is to not be in each other's lives anymore. I feel like I'm mourning a dead person, it hurts SO much. I know one day we'll get over it though, and that it's probably for the best. I think this might be (if not exactly) close to what this song is about now that I think of it.
