I came by to get my things
Thank you for gettin the door
But i don't feel right walkin in no more
You think it's cold
I did my cryin at home
But i'm numb now
I'm numb now
Before...


I'm on my way
I've one more thing to ask
Was it worth the price you paid
For my never comin back

Why did you mess with Forever?
Ooohh...Such a long time to be unkind
Why did you mess with Forever oooh yea


Don't you call me cruel
Cruel's what you're makin me do
Stick to my rules
I'm at odds with me now
So stay don't go ahead and stay
Before

I'm on my way
I've one more thing to ask
Was it worth the price you paid
For my never comin back


Why did you mess with Forever?
Oooohhh Such a long time to be unkind
Why did you mess with Forever?


You asked to kiss me once goodbye
But you already did
On somebody else's lips
Oooaahhh


Tell the tiny chemicals
The ones you hold responsible
They lost me,
You lost me,


Now everything inside me tells me i should run to you and throw my arms around you
Hold your steamin cryin cheek against my own
And tell you nothing's wrong
But wrong is what you were when you forgot
That we were goin' on
We were goin' on
We were goin' on,


Tell me Why did you Why did you Mess With
Forever hoo,
What a long time to be unkind,
Why did you mess with Forever...?

    I'm only assuming he's writing this from a girl's perspective... so here's my outlook:

    The girl came in to get her stuff because she's leaving. The guy got drunk (the chemicals in your body) and cheated on her. She knows he knows what he did was wrong and he's begging for forgiveness. But she's got to maintain her dignity and stick to "her rules" and not come back to him. She wants to stay with him, but knows she can't. He broke his "forever" promise.
