You’re so vain
It makes me go insane
According to you,
I’m always to blame

I don’t know what I do
To start so many fights with you
You and I will always lose

I’m upset with you
You hate me
I guess that’s just the way it’s gotta be

I’m extremely mad
It’s better than being sad

Wasting every day
Wishing everything would be ok
And all our problems would just go away

Broken hearted
Now we’re back to where we started

Every time you don’t look my way
I fight the urge to yell at you and say
“How can you act like everything’s ok?”

Days go by
And no more do I want to cry
I see you now and all I think is “why?”

Why couldn’t I see?
That we could never be

With all the arguments and all the lies
Coming from both sides
You still don’t see the hurt portrayed in my eyes

In a way
I know it will all turn out ok
I just have to make it through each day
With no foul play

As much as I would love too
I refuse to hit you

Everything now seems so unreal
Always trying to hide the way I feel
And not make it into a big deal

Right now I wish you would go hide
I don’t even care to say goodbye

As hard as I try
It seems I was always the bad guy

So congrats
You win
Stop fighting the urge to grin

I can take the hit
I just have to grit my teeth and smile through it

I didn’t want to cause you pain
But you’re so vain
You won’t even let me explain

Don’t complain to me
You’re the one who took things to that degree
I’m so glad I’m finally free

Free from you
And everything you ever put me through
It’s time for an adieu

I won’t miss any of those days
Though their memories stay
Even through all the craze
And the growing haze

I may not like you now
But that doesn’t mean we can’t be friends somehow

Maybe there will be a way

But for now
Why don’t you just take a bow?
You’re ruining my life somehow

I don’t want to see your face again
It would make me inane
And I would hope you got caught in a downpour of acid rain

I hate that you’ve made me like this
Thinking thoughts like “I hope you fall into an abyss”
I miss the bliss
But I don’t need to reminisce

As dawn breaks
I no longer feel the aches
That you left for me behind you in your wake
No more shakes
I no longer believe it was a mistake

You’ve made me stronger and more true
This time to me and not to you

Now that I’m stronger
I won’t be hurting any longer

And for that
I thank you
