No one ever said that life was fair and I'm not saying that it should be
So knowing that you are what you want to be and I'm not comes as no surprise
But don't expect me to be happy for you
And don't smile at me and tell me things will work out for me too
I don't want your pity... I hate your pity

Taste your vanity and it's sweet bitterness
As you hide behind your veil of my stolen hopes and lost dreams
... You took them all...
I watched you steal my thoughts and had to see you smile

As you build your dreams on my shattered hopes
I'll look back on a day once loved and fantasize for tragedy

Swallow your pride

Beg me to make this easier and listen to my hopeless cries

Suffer alone in emptiness
I lust to see you swallowed by the mess that you left in your wake
Disgust lies deep within your empty gaze...

Beg me to make this easier and listen as my hopeless cries
Send stares into your meaningless eyes

My envy can't describe how I loathe you for having all the stars
Leaving my eyes to marvel the sky knowing it should be mine
Yet it's you I see wasting the dream that only I deserve
I'll tear off your face to see your smile.

As you build your dreams on my shattered hopes
I'll look back on a day once loved and fantasize for tragedy

Swallow your pride

Beg me to make this easier and listen as my hopeless cries
Send stares into your meaningless eyes

    This isn't a dedication.

    Dear Hannah,
    I listen to this song so many times and I want to make myself believe this is how I feel about you, but I don't. No matter what you say, or what you do to me, I don't hate you. No, in fact, I still love you. Love doesn't change to hate after being rejected once, or twice, or a million times. No matter how hard it is, and how hard is it was, and how hard its going to be, I still love you, Hannah.

    I love you,
    Bryant

    Yes they are quiet PERFECT!!
    anyway this song is about the guy just got dumped and he's telling the girl off b/c she's trying to act all "things will work out for you to".She pissed him off so he starts torturing her waiting for her to apologize and beg for him to make it easier.

    It's to someone i once called my best friend. He was there for me and me for him we were brothers. He introduced me to my girlfriend. Before he took her to our high school prom. His hope was to form a relationship with her and he tried as hard as he could to make this happen. I betrayed you kory and i tried to make it right and you called me a leech and a coward. So you hate me, congratulations you made yourself miserable and you made me the happier than i have ever known
