I open my eyes
I try to see but I'm blinded by the white light.
I can't remember how,
I can't remember why,
I'm lying here tonight,
And I can't stand the pain,
And I can't make it go away,
No I can't stand the pain.

*CHORUS*
How could this happen to me?
I've made my mistakes,
Got nowhere to run,
The night goes on, as I'm fading away.
I'm sick of this life.
I just want to scream,
"How could this happen to me?"

Everybody's screaming,
I try to make a sound but no one hears me.
I'm slipping off the edge.
I'm hanging by a thread.
I want to start this over again.
So I try to hold,
On to a time when,
Nothing mattered.
And I can't explain,
What happened and I can't erase the things that I've done.
No I can't.

*CHORUS*
How could this happen to me?
I've made my mistakes,
Got nowhere to run,
The night goes on.As I'm fading away,
I'm sick of this life.
I just want to scream,
"How could this happen to me?"

    i love this song, it reassures me that eveything will be get better in time. That all those teen boys who have ignored me for no reason will one day see their mistakes and it will be too late. Its sad though, that good people like me have to suffer because we are not bad girls.
