You turn me off at the push of a button,
And you pretend that I don't mean nothing.
I'm not a saint, that's easy to tell,
But guess what, honey, you ain't no angel.

You like to scream these words as a weapon,
Well go ahead, take your best shot, woman.
I wanna leave you, it's easy to see,
But guess what, honey, it's not that easy
.

We get so complicated. (Complicated! )
This finger's for our memories.

So rip my pictures from your wall.
Tear them down and burn them all.
Light the fire and walk away.
There's nothing left to say so

Take the ashes from the floor,
Bury them to just make sure
That nothing more is left of me.
Just bittersweet memories.

Memories... ahh...

I wanna run and escape from your prison,
But when I leave I feel like something is missing.
I'm not afraid, that's easy to tell.
This can't be heaven, it feels like I'm in hell.

You're like a drug that I can't stop taking.
I want more & I can't stop craving.
I still want you, it's easy to see,
But guess what, honey, you're not that good for me.

We get so complicated. (Complicated! )
This finger's for our memories.

So rip my pictures from your wall.
Tear them down and burn them all.
Light the fire and walk away.
There's nothing left to say so

Take the ashes from the floor,
Bury them to just make sure
That nothing more is left of me,
Just bittersweet memories.
Just bittersweet memories.

We get so complicated. (Complicated! )
This finger's for our memories.
We get so complicated. (complicated, complicated...)

So rip my pictures from your wall.
Tear them down and burn them all.
Light the fire and walk away.
There's nothing left to say so

Take the ashes from the floor,
Bury them to just make sure
That nothing more is left of me,
Just bittersweet memories.

Woah oh oh oh (x3)
There's nothing left to say
Woah oh oh oh (x3)
There's nothing left to say

    not wanting to sound like a pansy, this song actually moved me. I really love it when heavy bands like bullet for my valentine do really sensitive songs that are slow.

    I feel that this song is about a couple that loves eachother but theres just someting they cant get over so they deside that things are too complicated to work out even though they still love each other. They deside to go sepreate ways but theres always going to be that love they shared in their memories. Thats why its bittersweet memories.

    Being in a poisonous relationship, where there is so much love, but so much hate. And you know you should leave, that it's best for both of you, but you can't help thinking of those now bittersweet memories you shared, and all the good times. Yet you don't even know where to begin to fix the problems though, so you just leave even though you feel so empty without that person. Even though you miss them everyday, it doesn't matter, because things are too complicated, they're beyond repair. And no matter what your feelings are, even if you both secretly love each other, you bury it because there's too much pain, too many things said and done, that you can't pretend it never happened. So you throw all their stuff away, because by doing that you think maybe, just maybe, it'll make it easier to stop loving them.
