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.


Was I what you wanted and more?
Or was this a fling to get you through like before?
You made a promise, you broke it,
Told me you and I could be perfect.
The life we planned out, we were just kidding ourselves,
'Cause you left me like everyone else.
And I could hate you, but I won't do that,
Just understand I can't take you back...
Was I mistaken,
For letting your lips meet mine?
Was I mistaken,
For giving you all of my time?
Are you shaken,
From always seeing us fight?
Are you breakin',
From when we said goodbye that night?
Thought we could make it,
Baby, you were worth it,
But I can't do this another minute.
And it looks like you were only fakin',
So was I mistaken...?
Did you recite everything you needed to that day?
Or will you hold your breath and just walk away?
You had a habit of telling me lie after lie,
Don't know to believe you even when I witnessed you cry.
I gave you what you wanted, all you could need,
My heart was yours until you ripped it apart to watch it bleed.
Time will allow me to forgive but not forget,
And I probably should consider it, but you'll never be a regret...
Was I mistaken,
For letting your lips meet mine?

From always seeing us fight?

You are an angel with devil eyes,
Lured me in by desire, not much of a surprise.
Assisted you through your pain,
Said you were glad you learned my name.
Something just didn't feel right, it was all too easy,
My breathing returned to normal after you messaged me.
Conversation was short, just like this love,
I never broke a promise, but here I am giving up...
(Were you mistaken,
For letting me go?
Were you mistaken,
For not coming to my show?)
Was I mistaken,
For letting your lips meet mine?
Was I mistaken,
For giving you all of my time?
Are you shaken,
From always seeing us fight?
Are you breakin',
From when we said goodbye that night?
Thought we could make it,
Baby, you were worth it,
But I can't do this another minute.
And it looks like you were only fakin',
Guess I was mistaken...
