Favorite Quote:
"It's a paper town, look at all those culs-de-sac, those streets that turn in on themselves, all the houses that were built to fall apart. All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm. All the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store. Everyone demented with the mania of owning things. All the things paper-thin and paper-frail. And all the people, too. I've lived here for eighteen years and I have never once in my life come across anyone who cares about anything that matters.” -John Green

Stop clutching at your heart boy
I can't help but smile and say
Don't you get love is meant to destroy
Pain is a price we all have to pay

I find it cute that you are so naive
To believe every loving word she had to say
It was second nature for her to deceive
Oh, how much your heart must weigh

You both made plans
To be with each other 'till the end
That was until she took off and ran
The apologies she spewed were all pretend

Do you still see her every time you close your eyes
Can you taster her lips from your first kiss
Do you feel the bile in your throat start to rise
When you remember the feeling of bliss

Do you hate heartbreak
Do you hate her lies
Do you hate the way she made you shake
When she bid you her final good-bye

You looked at me and said
Love was not supposed to be this hard
I replied, darling don't you see
Love was always meant to play this card
