She said it's over
Packed up her bags left the keys on the sofa
Said that she's done she don't need any closure
Got in her car showing no composure
Always looked back couldn't leave any slower
See her words didn't match up
I could see that she wanted just to back up
Yeah she knew that her feelings gonna catch up
What can I say is it something we can patch up
Baby tell me is it
tell me is it really what you want
If you really want me back better put me in the front
I ain't gonna hit you up if you really want me gone
But I know
I'll go down in history
Imma make you miss me
Whatever town or city
You won't find another one like me to put it simply
Imma make you miss me
Always been a mystery
Imma be the one you always see when you're not here
Yeah
See I ain't gonna front
You can hide behind your ego but we both know what you want
Yeah I know I'm kinda toxic, last night I lost it
Put down the boxes, we gotta stop this, yeah
Cus when we're good we're incredible
Last night was rough but that shit's forgettable
I said some things that I find regrettable
You might have options we ain't comparable
Baby tell me is it
tell me is it really what you want
If you really want me back better put me in the front
I ain't gonna hit you up if you really want me gone
But I know that
I'll go down in history
Imma make you miss me
Whatever town or city
You won't find another one like me to put it simply
Imma make you miss me
Always been a mystery
Imma be the one you always see
See I might be, the one that has hurt you most
But I'll still be, the one that still holds you close
And I know sometimes it feels like I feel nothing at all
But I know I will be the one you call
Cus I'll go down in history
Imma make you miss me
Whatever town or city
You won't find another one like me to put it simply
Imma make you miss me
Always been a mystery
Imma be the one you always see when you're not here

    Dude this song just fuckin rocks. It used to be the one i skipped on razorblade but know i love it. Is it really about abortion? The message i always thought of was that he wanted to get out be on his own, and just live his own life, ignoring history. I dont know why i think that?...it just rocks

    truely one of, if not the, best songs on razorblade suitcase. I'm only hesitant because Cold Contagious was on the same album...

    its more about an unwanted pregnancy than abortion..

    explaining how she has sex and doesnt even think anything of the concequences.. and she's late on her period but thinks everything will be ok.

    'All of a sudden you come my way'

    and she wont get rid of it with the morning after pill

    it goes on from there with morning sickness and how she was a daughter being told what to do but now she's going to be a mother with control- 'slave turned to master'

    its one of my favs

    about unwanted pregnancy:

    "Gave my love to two thousand yesterdays" he got all caught up in the love thing and it felt like he's loved this girl for 'two thousand yestersdays'

    "Nothing is wrong, I am always a little late" missed period. sign of pregnancy. trying to avoid the truth by telling heerself shes always a little late.

    "Probably will probably won't, get this disease cut out my throat" the nervousness sets in, thinking, it probaly will just pass over, then what if it doesn't.. just make it go away..

    "All of a sudden you come my way, baby believer" she turns out pregnant, and shes a 'baby believer' or a non-abortion believer.

    "I won't be saved by morning after Struggling my name, slave turned to master" he wont be saved by the morning after pill, he's going to be a father..was a 'slave' as a kid, but now that he's going to have a kid hes 'master'

    "History moans, mouth of our father" the same thing happened to his father, and his father preached and preached to be smart and not let this happen to him. but it did.. HISTORY repeats itself.. he keeps remembering the his fatheers words: "mouth of my father"

    "Edge of my bed, benzedrine telephone Struggling to speak, I'm sicker than sickest dog Falling faster than liar's grin, we need to be saved from the shit we're in I believe in you I have found, the perfect way to bring me down"

    he's really nervouse.. benzedrine is a name brand anti-depressant/a.d.d. med.. helps him stay calm. he wants out any way possible. he doesn't want this.

    SORRY ABOUT THE GRAMMAR, ETC.. ITS 1AM AND I CANT THINK STRAIGHT.. BUT THATS MY 2 CENTS
