I tried to find you at the bottom of the bottle
Lying down on the bathroom floor
My loneliness was rattling the windows
You said you don't want me anymore

And you left me
Standing on the corner crying
Feeling like a fool for trying
I don't even remember why
I’m wasting all these tears on you

I wish I could erase all memory
'Cause you didn't give a damn about me
And finally I'm through
Wasting all these tears on you
These tears on you

You ain't worth another sleepless night
And I’ll do everything I got to do get you off my mind
'Cause what you wanted I couldn’t give
What you did, boy I'll never forget

And you left me
Standing on the corner crying
Feeling like a fool for trying
I don't even remember why
I'm wasting all these tears on you

I wish I could erase all memory
'Cause you didn't give a damn about me
And finally I'm through
Wasting all these tears on you,
these tears on you

And you left me
Standing on the corner crying
Feeling like a fool for trying
I don't even remember why
I'm wasting all these tears on you

I wish I could erase all memory
'Cause you didn't give a damn about me
Oh, finally I'm through
Wasting all these tears on you,
these tears on you

I tried to find you at the bottom of the bottle
Lying down on the bathroom

    It means that she is getting over a breakup from a guy that never loved her back and she is starting to feel better about it and now she doesn't remember why she ever liked him when he didn't like her back and why she was crying over him, hoping that he would see his mistakes he made and get back together, but he is never going to come back to her, but that is OK with her because she knows there are other fish in the sea and will reel in another and fall in love with him.

    I just left a 4 year relationship. There was countless nights, i have cab home alone crying after i left him. i have found hair clip on his bedside table, strands of long hair on the couch which doesn't belongs to me. Yet i keep going back because i love him. i am glad i have chose to leave him. This song is exactly how i am feeling now. Yes, i still feel the pain.

    This song brings up so many emotions about 1 man and 1 woman she believes she has found everything she's always wanted she has placed her heart and soul into something she thought wasnt possible until the day she caught a glimpse into the double sided mirror as she looked she saw her every dream unfolding in front of her...but in reality, she's been made to play the part of the fool...now she realizes her dream has been shattered, and she must make a painful decision...she decides that this isn't the end to her story, but a new day, and a new start to find something great

    I'm a 13 year old girl and I have had a boyfriend for almost a year then one day a friend that's in choir with him told me that he kissed another girl and the other girl was my best friend. So in a way I can relate to that song it hurts I know but I have a new boyfriend he treats me with respect unlike the other one we have our up's and down's but we can make it through a tough school year and for my ex-boyfriend what he did was wrong he knows it and he's trying to get back to me by dating ALL of my closest friends I just hope he finds the right one because he literally left me crying for days.
