Within Temptation – Destroyed lyrics


I did my best to please you
But my best was never good enough
Somehow you're only able to see
All I am not

Did you ever look behind
Aren't you afraid of the pieces you'll find
I have failed you
But you have failed me too

It's so easy to destroy
And condemn
The ones you do not understand
Do you ever wonder if it's justified

It's so easy to destroy
And condemn
The ones you do not understand
In your life why didn't you ever try

I close my eyes as I walk the thin line
Between love and hate
For the person with the same blood in his veins

You show no regrets
About all the things you did or said
I have failed you
But believe me
You failed me too

[Chorus 2x]

Please input the reason why these lyrics are bad:


  • p
    Direct, intimate, and crucifying. Its the powerful message about standards, cliques, and eliteism. A person who fails to realize that the human psyche is fragile when one is constantly subjected to judgements and verbal abuse. Especiallly, idolization from a teacher or a parent. In fact, you can expect misery, dysfunction as a long-term effect. She in the end reflects that we are all human and made from the same cloth. She finds it difficult to balance her disappointment, and hatred with her person philosphy. Even though she's the one picking up the pieces, and forever stigmatized by these psychic scars.
