Favorite Quote:
Scenery is nothing more than poetry.
Love is nothing more than chemicals.
'Cause fairy tales are just scribbled pages filled with happy endings and little white lies.
One person can make a difference, but a crowd can make a change.


How could you use me like this?
Lured me in and I fell for your charm.
Oh, my cute blond, you had me with your eyes,
I couldn't shift my direction, I didn't want too.
Eventually, I broke away,
Lying for you became the new truth.
And I couldn't take all the secrets you kept,
I can be trusted, you know that.
All you had to tell me was you just weren't feeling a connection,
I would've been fine with just being friends, but no.
You had to lie, and sneak around,
Behind my back, it hurts, girl, it hurts.
I loved you,
You used me.
What do you have to say now?
I gave to you,
You stole from me.
What's your alibi this time?
'Cause it hurts, girl, it hurts,
To know our love was just a game to you.
Why did you play me like you did?
Why was it so hard to explain the truth?
That you were seeing another guy behind my back,
You don't understand what this has done to me.
But you can go, be happy and live your life,
No need to dig up the past.
I'll be okay, I'll get over you, eventually,
I can breathe without you here.
Although, girl, one thing remains unclear;
Why did you ever pretend to love me?
How could you play me like a violin and expect me to be okay?
I couldn't escape the gravity, every kiss you laid on me held me down.
Oh, my adorable sweetheart, you exposed me to your voice,
Sounding like an angel, I couldn't block it out, I didn't intend too.
But I found a way to dispose of your voice, it lost its tune,
Sorry, I just couldn't hear it anymore.
Did he know you were with me while you saw him?
It'd be a shame for him to find out the truth.
I won't do that though, girl, 'cause I'd be no better than you,
I don't take people's hearts and use them for personal gain.
To be honest, I really thought we could last, you know?
Be what no other couple could be.
But no, love is just a game to you,
And it hurts, girl, it hurts.
I loved you,
You used me.
What do you have to say now?
I gave to you,
You stole from me.
What's your alibi this time?
'Cause it hurts, girl, it hurts,
To know our love was just a game to you.

Although, girl, one thing remains unclear;
Why did you ever pretend to love me?
Why, I wanna know why,
Did you do all this to me?
I didn't deserve the torture and pain you put me through,
If I had a chance to change it, I'd leave everything the same.
Because I enjoyed the lying love you showed to me,
And call me crazy but, I'd take you back in a heartbeat.
It's called love,
An emotion you don't understand...
I loved you,
You used me.
What do you have to say now?
I gave to you,
You stole from me.

'Cause it hurts, girl, it hurts,

Why did you play me like you did? (Tell me why?)
Why was it so hard to explain the truth? (Tell me why?)
That you were seeing another guy behind my back,
You don't understand what this has done to me. (You don't understand)
But you can go, be happy and live your life,
No need to dig up the past.
I'll be okay, I'll get over you, eventually,

Although, girl, one thing remains unclear;
Why did you ever pretend to love me?
Why, oh, why,
Tell me why.
Why, oh, why,
Tell me why.
Why did you ever pretend to love me?
I deserve to know, girl,
Just tell me why...
