Every day trying to make up for the one before
Climb three flights to tremble at the sight of your already open door
The frustration I see when I tell you I like some company
breaks my heart
How can you be so impartial?

And I've made myself the fool
Who's fallen for you
So let me down softly this time and
I wont have to come back cryin'
I've just made myself look bad
You're the one who should be feelin' bad
It'd be better to forget you
But I don't really want to
It'd be better to forget you
But I don't really want to

Energy spent trying to believe you're not worth it
You don't deserve it
but I wish you did 'cause I can't rid the thought of it
And I'll remember you as the second or two
Artists I knew who decided to screw me over
'Cause it's the bolder thing to do

Chorus X2

    General CommentI hear;
    "but I wish you did 'cause I rid the thought of it"


    but I wish you did 'cause I can't live without this

    that's my two cents.

    General Commentbasically, she's the second girl in his life. she knows he is in love with another girl and is just passing his time with her until he can be with the other girl again. she can't let him go and is fighting to win him over, but no matter how much she tries he just breaks her heart more. and instead of making a big scene she'll just remember what he did to her.

    General CommentAbsolutely love it, the words hit so straight and honest, and her voice is simple but full of emotion. It's one of those 'this was written for me' kind of songs.

    General Commentshe's just asking him to stop leading her on, even though she doesn't really want to forget him. i can actually hear the pain in her voice as she sings this song. dammnnnnnn.

    General CommentIt is 'but I wish you did 'cause I rid the thought of it'.
    But I agree with skank. This song really hits home. I hate it when you're been lead on, and you realize it but he's too amazing to let go of.

    General Commenti can relate to this song in everyway. i always get the shit end of the deal.

    it's about a girl who was with this guy or at least "talking" to him and he must have screwed her over for lack of better words then he keeps leading her on and she feels so ashamed for knowing he doesn't want her like she wants him. and that she's falling for him and now she's asking him to let her down with his true feelings so she can finally move on.
