Even Failures Need Love

April 14, 2008

You look at me
with such disgust
Honestly, I'd spill my heart for you
But now I wonder, do you feel the same way too

So scream at me, punch me, smack me, kick me
anything as long as you're thinkign of me
It's killing me to know you're never there for me
You say I'm a failure, but the thing you can't understand is that failures need love too.

Sweet Lullabies and praise
Two things I have never known
When I entre the house, I'm all alone
It's kind of funny how she simply sneezes and you come rushing home

So scream at me, punch me, smack me, kick me
anything as long as you're thinkign of me
It's killing me to know you're never there for me
You say I'm a failure, but the thing you can't understand is that failures need love too.

I'm done crawling on my hands and knees
For the table scraps of your love
My wings are broken no more
I'll fly away, even without you're love

So try to scream at me, punch me, smack me, kick me
In the end, none of that will even faze me
Yo say I'm a failure, bu the thing you can't understand is that failures need love too
And guess what?
This failure is done with you
