Favorite Quote:
I'd rather be shivering with pneumonia than sitting on the dock and wondering if the water's warm.


Oh, my love:
What did I do
To ever deserve
Someone like you?

So full of love
Singing like a bird
You are so amazing
Well—you were

Oh, how much do I love you?
Let me count the ways!
And how much have I cried?
Let me count the days.

You had my heart
I’m love struck and blind
I can’t believe I ever thought
You were mine

You know, I could tell
Everytime you lied;
I wanted to fix it
Honestly, I tried

But I guess you preferred
To watch me fall
Well, congratulations
Winner gets all.

Oh my love
What did I do
To ever deserve
Someone like you?

A spiteful ode to the broken hearts that never get fixed.
