You took my heart and turned it inside-out.
You made my world go upside-down and around.
And I cannot believe how I could not see
What this whole mess would end up to be!

It became picture-perfect memories of you
Thrown down across my floor.
It was smiles and tears and tons of heartbreak
Before I finally slammed my door.
And that year I thought would be my very best
Ended with my heart torn from my chest.

When I first saw your eyes they made me smile,
And I did not realize, no not for a while,
That you only cared about the chase.
Then it was gone without a trace.
Not a thought for the tears rollin’ down my face!


How could I, why would I,
When it wasn’t even worth the try.
Why bait me, then break me,
When I wasn’t even worth your time.

Don’t try to catch me anymore,
‘Cause I’ve already slammed my door.
Whatever you try just won’t work out.
Listen to me now….

Those picture-perfect memories of you,
Well, I don’t have them anymore.
After smiles and tears and tons of heartbreak,
I have found a different door.
And with my heart torn from my chest,
I finally realized you never…were the best.

This is a song I wrote about the guy I had my verryyy first little kiss with. At the time, he was the biggest crush I'd ever had, and it hurt so much when we just blew me off. So I wrote this.
