"No boy is worth crying over, and the one who is won't make you cry."

Screw you for everything
You were full of all lies
You said you wouldn't hurt me
And I believed it the whole time.

I should've known better,
It was too good to be true.
I guess in the end
All I wanted was you.

You said we'd still talk
Because you said that you cared
But that's not what caring is -
You weren't even there.

I was so hurt by your choice
You know what I did
And honestly if I could,
I'd do it all again.

It's like every time I'm happy
Or even close to it at least,
Someone takes it away -
Disturbing my peace.

The second I feel
Like everything is perfect
It's gone in thin air
And nothing is worth it.

What's the point in trying
To be happy at all?
I don't see a reason
Since I'm just gonna fall.

I just want
A reason to smile
But not for a little bit -
One for a while.

I want a reason
To get up in the morning
I'm sick of being sad
Like I'm constantly mourning.

You were that reason
And you took that away -
You were my reason for smiling
Every single day.

Now when I see your name
I don't know how to feel,
Because I know for a fact
What I felt for you was real.

It wasn't love
But it could've been
And we'll never know now -
It was brought to an end.

I'm not sure what you want
Or why you're talking to her,
But you've tried that before
And all you got was hurt.

I'd like to say I'll be here
Whenever you need me next,
But I don't know if I can do that
Since you left me like the rest.

I'd like to say I'll care
When she leaves for him again,
But I don't know if I can do that
Since we're not even just friends.

Just friends wouldn't have been so bad
If you would've talked to me.
But seeing as I don't exist,
Just friends isn't what I need.

So again, screw you
For hurting me so bad
And taking away
What happiness I had

I take some blame for the hurt I had felt
Every word you said, I believed.
I should've known better - you were too good to be true.
You're a boy you lie -
Silly me.
