"The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for."-Bob Marley

I stumble past your figure
recalling history
you weren't the best of all
but good enough for me
I didn't want to hurt you
or inflict a sort of pain
but I didn't do much good
pushing you into the rain
and it was there that you found
MY friends
your own new release
it was there that you found her
and brought me to my knees
i didn't miss you
i still don't
but now that i know your plans
I'm praying to God you won't

because (Chorus)
Every time I see you
I give the same reply
but looking in your eyes
makes me wanna cry
i can't look at you
not the same
without taking on
her only name
you've lost your old young purity
you cant be seen the same by me
you're dirty, gross, and vile
I only wish that I could smile
but knowing you have sold yourself
you deserve spit upon your wealth
lying, cheating
why no truth?
if both were smart
they'd get the boot
true love doesn't lay in sex
true love isn't from a bed
it's in your heart
not in your head
(end of chorus)

I can't help but think
maybe if i had stayed
you wouldn't have turned out this way
I'd do so many things to save your virginity
just about anything you'd ask of me
but I'm procrastinating
pleading you not to go
because what I'm trying to tell you
I'm not supposed to know
I'm not supposed to know a lot of things
but then again
that's why my necks held by a chain
because of lies and truths and life
taken in vain

but all i can think about is that (chorus)

now there's a clacking
when i walk down the hall
I'm passing you and her
trying to forget it all
as i know too much
i know more than i should
if it hadn't been for you
i wouldn't know more than i would
but i do
and i can't forget
i'm begging you
don't make this new regret
I'm telling you
it'll be over before you know
you're too precious to let yourself
be bought and sold

don't let yourself go
like a slave
this isn't your time
you've got years to wait
i know that you don't love her
and she doesn't love you
so why break yourself
when you know it's not the truth?
why break yourself
in the middle of your youth?
I'm crying this hard!
because there's nothing i can do
to save you
save you
save you
