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 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 cryin'
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 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 your dreams 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
