I fell for you, heart and soul,

gave you my innermost thoughts

and trusted you to take care of me,

just for a litle while.


I didn't want a future with you,

just something that could help

me through the pain, maybe take

the edge off a little.


Now I can't stop hurting cos you

never told me how you felt, you just

sat there and let me play into your hands

like the fool that I am.


My mother once told me I'd end up hurt,

and I never believed her. Maybe I should

have listened a little more when I was young,

then maybe I wouldn't be in this position.


So I guess this is goodbye, and thank you.

It was good while it lasted, but now I'm alone

with my heart and my music, and I know that

for now at least, I can't stop hurting.
