Don't cry to me.
If you loved me,
You would be here with me.
You want me,
Come find me.
Make up your mind.

Should I let you fall?
Lose it all?
So maybe you can remember yourself.
Can't keep believing,
We're only deceiving ourselves.
And I'm sick of the lie,
And you're too late.

Don't cry to me.
If you loved me,
You would be here with me.
You want me,
Come find me.
Make up your mind.

Couldn't take the blame.
Sick with shame.
Must be exhausting to lose your own game.
Selfishly hated,
No wonder you're jaded.
You can't play the victim this time,
And you're too late.

So Don't cry to me.
If you loved me,
You would be here with me.
You want me,
Come find me.
Make up your mind.

You never call me when you're sober.
You only want it cause it's over,
It's over.

How could I have burned paradise?
How could I - you were never mine.

So don't cry to me.
If you loved me,
You would be here with me.
Don't lie to me,
Just get your things.
I've made up your mind.

    I love this song. I play this song all the time because I can relate to it. I play this because of my dad. I finally got sick of the stuff that he did. So I play this to remind me that it isn't my fault but his for pushing me away like he has.

    I love this song. It is the perfect hate song. I think this song means that her man cheated on her and he wouldn't tell her. So, he takes drugs to drown out the pain. She finds out and tells him "It's either me, or her. Make up your mind."

    I know many people feel insulted about this song but it seems it's been bottled up in her for so long. And besides, after the song was released, Shaun went into rehab.

    She loves him. He can't make up his mind. "You never call me when your sober". It could be literal as in he only wants to see her when he is drunk or it could just mean that she isn't a regular part of his life. He doesn't have time for her or doesn't make time for her. She keeps telling herself that he loves her, but she is starting to realize that he does not love her. If he loved her, he would be with her. She has been making excuses for him because she really loves him. But the reality is that he is using her. It's almost like he wants to see her when he has nothing better to do. He expects her to just be okay with this. But she's not. She is thinking about leaving him, so that he will see how much she means to him. But, then she realizes that it doesn't matter because it's already too late. She knows that even if she left and he came after her wanting her back it would be for the wrong reasons. She believes that he would only wants her because it's over and not because he loves her and misses her. She is angry too because he blames her and fails to see that he is the one who pushed her away. He is the one who couldn't make up his mind. He is the one that destroyed paradise. They could have been really great together, but he never could make up his mind. It makes me think that they were close but not in a relationship. Maybe she was having affair with a married man. Hence the "You were never mine". In the end, she makes up his mind for him and leaves. She got tired of waiting and finally realized that if he wanted her, he would be there with her or he would come after her.

    How can one survive on hatred? An infant will die if it is not touched or loved. I'm surprised that people hate at all!
