  • I'm never waking up again so I'll never have to find out what you did
    Each day it's harder to pretend
    That your eyes aren't lying as much as your mouth did
    I'd grab your head by your hair and I'd hack it off
    And put it on display at the front of the yard
    On a stick that's decorated with a little pink bow and a sign that says
    "Her friends and family should have taught her more about love."

    Dear Tragedy, I never had anybody
    But being alone wasn't half as bad as being obsessed
    With a breath taker,
    A smile faker
    But these years alone have eaten me alive

    Recounting pages in a book
    That I'd torn out ashamed that one day you'd look
    Afraid that once you did you'd really know how it felt
    To be a sucker on a string that you dragged around wherever you'd go
    I'm running around, around and it hurts
    Tempted to tape up the pages I'd ripped
    And although I recognize that we're attached at the lips,
    You're the one in charge and that the captain's gotta sink with the ship

    I never had anybody
    But being alone wasn't half as bad as being obsessed
    With a breath taker,
    A smile faker
    But these years alone have eaten me alive

    Breath taker,
    Smile faker,
    How could I have let you in my life?
    You're a breath taker,
    Smile faker
    These years alone have eaten me alive Writer/s: Anthony S Raneri, Jack A O'Shea, John Holohan, Nick Ghanbarian
