Once I was complete
And safe within your heart
Me with a preference
For making things worse

So now I am a was
Now I am a was
I started at the top
And I worked my way down

Once I was so smugly
Foremost in your thoughts
Me with a talent
For making you cry

So now I am a was
Now I am a was
I started at the top
And I worked my way down
So now I am a was

So, now I am a was
I am a was
So, now I am a was
I am a, I am a, I am a, I am a
I am a, I am a, I am a, I am a

    My Opinion

    I really think that it's about the smiths and how he was always in johnny's mind but he ruined it all. but again, i'm a fan blinded by her love of the smiths.
