Lyrics

I'm hurtin for someone else
To feel this pain
Are you hurtin too?
I'm desperate
So desperate

But i won't get my hopes up
I’ll just get all my ropes taught
After all
I’m only here to disappoint

I am truly only here to disappoint
Like all good dreams and you wind up dead
All those promises I never kept
I laugh and you will cry again
And again and again and again

These simple things I just can’t say
Remove the you from you and me
I stand to bring you to your knees
Again and again and again

I’m crying for someone
To show me
Real tears
I've tasted them I've wasted them
So many empty years...

Now i'm dying
Just to give you
A body I can give to
Something I can be a part of forever

I am truly only here to disappoint
Like all good dreams and you wind up dead
All those promises I never kept
I laugh and you will cry again
And again and again and again.

These simple things I just can’t say
Remove the you from you and me
I stand to bring you to your knees
Again and again and again

Distorted is my silhouette
Tainted starved and desperate
There’s no easy fix for this
That I cannot control
I’m breaking apart at the soul

Like all good dreams and you wind up dead
All those promises I never kept
I laugh and you will cry again
And again and again and again.

These simple things I just can’t say
Remove the you from you and me
I stand to bring you to your knees
Again and again and again
