Don't remind me why I did all the things that led to the instance at hand.
Just wait around and see, I never wanted anybody, ask around, she's nothing to me.
Cry on my shoulder and I will take your heart and place it in your little hands.
Don't frown, don't frown. All this for one man?

I would never drink from a cup like her's
If I could ever taste someone else just like her.
I would drink them down and multiply these overwhelming hearts.
If you'd only listen now, I've found another drug to get me high.

Watching the terrible, twisted ascension,
Fly like the feeblest fowl, no discretion.
Time isn't turning the ageless to reason,
Echoing night screams of love and devotion.

I don't know why I'm still alive,
I should have hit the ground alone so long ago.
I don't know how I'm still alive,
I've lost my breath so many times like this before.
Why was all this for one man?
