What I Come Up With When I Look At You

-

I just don't think I can matter

I'm not made up of anything worth while

God didn't create anything worthwhile about me

So this stinging pain, it cripples me

I'm off the wall with derailed emotions

I'm not the charm you wear around your neck

I'm this train wreck who never meant a thing

You couldn't tell me I was anything good

You just laugh and gossip

__when my name comes up

I am through with falling in love

Let me not know anything

__of what you are made of

Just let me forget all about you

__and finally move on

I'm not anything to you

It's written in blood

__and carved in stone

I could never make your heart explode

So it could never be mutual

The heart I gave you had a hole

And you never even gave me yours

I'll be a splattered bloody mess before you

When I find a way to kill myself

The way that I am

__I'm bound to find some one

____to help me out with my death wish

'Cause who really wants me to live?

I couldn't get a bitch

__if my life depended on it

Now let me get away from you

Since, to you, I am just no good

You'll only open up an wound in me

And I'll be cryin' over spilt milk

As if I spilt the remains

__of my last gallon on the floor

You'll leave me high and dry

Just begging for more of you

More, that you'll never give

I swear "I just wish my heart would rot"

Because this is just making the death of me a plot
