If the lies don't touch you, the truth will
And if I can't love you, then who will?
When your friends are jumping ship
When your crown begins to slip

And loyalty's not a virtue
Who are you gonna turn to?
When you seem to have lost your grip
And the road begins to rip

I held your hand
Is this the thanks I get?
I took you in
Is this the thanks I get?

Half a chance
The thanks I get
A twist of plans
Is this the thanks I get?

If the lies don't touch you, the truth will
If I can't love you, then who will?
When you're coming off your chip
When your ego takes a dip

I held your hand
Is this the thanks I get?
I took you in
Is this the thanks I get?

Half a chance
The thanks I get
A twist of plans
Is this the thanks I get?

The days hurt
The night hurts
The light hurts
My eyes hurt
The dark hurts
My heart hurts
It all hurts

I loved you
I loved you
I made you
I hate you
I hate you
I miss you
I miss you

The thanks I get
Is this the thanks I get?

    Its about a love lost.. Later one of parties feels that their love was taken for granted they are left feeling hurt without any appreciation and the respect their relationship deserved.
