Life must be empty when living a lie
With something to hide and nothing to show
You have learned nothing but how to destroy
Things that friends love you couldn't leave alone

Someday it's gonna hit you between the eyes
that we're not sixteen years old anymore
One day those people that used to welcome you with open arms
Will see you coming and hide then lock the door

People that listened to you were afraid
Even friends that knew you as a kid
Now you are sorry but you'll never change
change the things that you already did

Someday it's gonna hit you between the eyes
that the seeds have already been sown
Find your own garden because you still need space to grow
Until that time you will remain alone

Don't try to come around with your pathetic lies cause I
can see it in your
Eyes that you will always be the same and you will never
Have to say
Goodbye it's time for truth and not for lies...That you have
always told
Your trust was bought and sold you're all alone

    General CommentBasically, he's just telling of a girl that used to be loved by everyone and now, becoz of her lies and prolly sum other thing she'd done...they just totally turned their backs on her. And he's saying that, the second she realizes her wrongs and actually starts to change, only then will she not be alone.
