Boys Like Girls – The Only Way I Know How To Feel lyrics

[Verse 1]
Before you let me fall,
Kill me so I don't feel it at all,
And push my body up against the wall,
And pick your poison,
'Cause everything feels wrong,
And I don't know where I belong.

[Chorus]
Take me for granted,
Make me feel used,
Leave me in pieces.
Misery is company,
'Cause I know that it's real.
I've learned to love the pain,
'Cause that's the only way that I know how to feel.

[Verse 2]
Maybe it's a phase.
Maybe I'll break out of it someday.
Maybe this is just my twisted fate.
I always feel like everything is wrong,
And I don't know where I belong.

[Chorus]
Take me for granted,
Make me feel used,
Leave me in pieces.
Misery is company,
'Cause I know that it's real.
I've learned to love the pain,
'Cause that's the only way that I know how

[Bridge]
To feel your arms around my neck.
I'm suffocating with regret from all the wasted hours spent,
Believing I was never meant.
To touch the face of something real,
These so-called 'scars' will never heal,
And I put down a deal,
'Cause that's the only way that I know how to feel.

[Hook]
Take me for granted,
Make me feel used,
Leave me in pieces,
Broken and bruised.

[Chorus]
Take me for granted,
Make me a promise that you'll never keep.
I'm fallin' to pieces,
Misery is company,
'Cause I know that it's real.
I've learned to love the pain,
'Cause that's the only way that I know how to feel.

[Outro]
I know how to feel.
You're the only way that I know how to feel.

    It is-through my eyes- about only ever really feeling pain. The beggining sounds like he was being dumped, like he was saying "kill me before you say it so it won't hurt me" ya know? And how he doesn't care if he hurts, cause he's never really felt much else and how everything is wrong. He wants to be at least woven into someone's life somehow, so he wants to be used or taken for granted. About how his scars won't heel but he may grow out of them, and they're all from one person in particular, and he wants said person to never leave him or hurt him again, but it's already happened so much that it doesn't really hurt because he's used to the pain, but he want her so bad and it actually does hurt no matter what he hates to admit it and that reminds me of myself and my exboyfriend really bad and well, yeah.
    But that's just me.

    I guess the meaning of this song is the reality of the feeling of giving up on how you feel about someone. To give up on someone who you love/like deeply hurts and denying it will only make you hurt and grasps how love can hurt. And just wanting that feeling to have that someone return your love would be too much to handle because at the same time your hurting.
