lyrics for forest

Long were the nights when my days once revolved around you
Counting my footsteps, praying the floor wont fall through...
And my mother accused me of losing my mind
But I swore I was fine

You paint me a blue sky
And go back and turn it to rain
And I lived in your chess game but you changed the rules everyday
Wonderin' which version of you I might get on the phone
Well I stopped picking up and this song is to let you know why

Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress cried the whole way home
I should have known

Well maybe it's me and my blind optimism to blame
Maybe it's you and you're sick need to give love and take it away
And you'll add my name to your long list of traitors who don't understand
And I'll look back and regret how I ignored when they said run as fast as you can

Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress cried the whole way home

Dear John, I see it all now, it was wrong
Don't you think 19's too young to be played by your dark twisted games
When I loved you so
I should have known

You are an expert at "sorry"
And keeping lines blurry
Never impressed by me acing your tests
All the girls that you've run dry have tired, lifeless eyes
Cause you burned them out
But I took your matches before fire could catch me
So don't look now
I'm shining like fireworks over your sad empty town...

Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress cried the whole way home
I see it all now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress wrote you a song
You should have known
You should have known

Don't you think I was too young?
You should have known...

i shouldve known

I never thought it would be this way
you're actually gone.
when i look at the way things turned out, i couldnt have ever seen it this way.
you are supposed to be mine.
did i waste that? I threw it all away for another who couldnt compare.
i had to let go..
atleast for the moment so i could find another source of happiness.
its not the same.
you left me to figure out the world on my own
and i reached the point of satisfactory, but why do i feel this way?
why must you even still cross my mind?
i thought i was threw with you..
you were old news
nasty boy i hate
the one who made me cry every fucking night
i tried.
it all comes back to you.
i was convinced it was over, i didnt need you anymore.
i found a new love..
but hes no you.
not the boy i spent every day with
the one who made me laugh as much as he made me cry
the one who hurt me to the point to where ui didnt know if i could be okay.
that  was you.
 so why do i dwell on our past?
i know it was bad.
i know you are bad.
do i love you still?
i swore i didnt and never would again.
now im lost in the flood of tears just from your voice
why though?
i cant stop crying, but i dont want you.
maybe i never should have left.
now there is nothing
you cant even stand to look in my direction
i make you sick.
why does it have to be like this?>
i thought we were supposed to be together forever, and its really over now.
theres nothing i can do, i dont even want you
unless... i dont think i do.
i just miss you, forest.
it kills me to see you gone/
as if we never met,
wenever loved
do i have to erase you?
i keep running and it just pulls me back to this everytime,
but ive pushed you too far away.
i hate this.
its not supposed to be this way.
i ruined everything.

My advice to this premature world.
Sit there and think about all the fucked up people you've met in your life. How many times you've had your hopes up so high, just for them to be smashed to the ground, and you're left with what? If I could tell the world one thing, deep down and meaningful.. Dont ever settle for less. Set your goals high and reach them. Dont ever let someone else bring you down. Dont stay with someone who doesnt treat you right. EVeryone wants to be happy, so be it. You cant hide behind someone who is holding you back from your dreams. You'll never go anywhere with that. Fear nothing, and trust no one. Its you against the world. Dont fall for the bullshit people feed you about friendship and love. Niether one is important, or nearly exists. Love is just a thought. You'll always be turned down by "love" and nothing really lasts forever. Maybe im just a negative person, but people have led me to think this way. Im happy with my life and I dont need anyone else for that. I can get things done for me by myself. Its all about you. Dotn worry about others, they dont really give a shit.


When im lost in my dark and dirordered mind
i think about all the shit you do to me
my way of being has been completely turned around
everyone just walks all over me
i dont speak for myself
i dont speak my mind
i hide behind this silhouette carrying my soul around earth
this fucked up place has my thoughts all twisted and jumbled.
who am i really?
would it matter to anyone if i just packed up and started somwhere new?
who are you, really?
do you think the world stops to listen to your problems?
i do
and i shouldnt
who do you think you are, really?
im nobodys bitch and i wont stand here for long
its time i do something about you
the issue is YOU
you're the biggest problem that i deal with
and i want change
a life without you.
all you do is bring me down
and toss me around with hateful comments and lies.
im not your doll.
you cant treat me like shit and expect me to stick around,
but i always do.
somehow i always find myself back to where i started.
running in circles.
whats so special about you?
you love me, supposably.
you care for me, supposably.
and you want whats best for me?
i see nothing there
just a scared child who doesnt want to be alone.
no one wants to be alone, but i'd rather be alone than be tortured by your so-called "love"
its got me in so deep that i dont the way out.
ive tried over and over to escape this trance youve got me in
this trap
im searching for the way out
on my own.
i just want to be free.

oh and your sweet and pretty face
Once again you've got me stuck in a rut
I cant decide what to do from here.
Give you back my heart, my soul, my everything,
or conquer my biggest fear.
There is a big chance you could do the same that you've always done
and prove to me that you're just not the one.
My heart desires attention, I crave love
Almost to the point where its sufficating me.
I ponder through my thoughts and weigh out my options
do you really mean what you say?
Or is this just some trickster game you've got me in
Im you're fool now.
My mind is in a trance
Love is the hypnotist
All my emotions just dance
they cant handle staying put.
Riding in this disaster pit where I dont know where I belong
You sing to me my favorite song
Over and over I cry out for you
But someone else has taken over.
I want to make you mine forever
and never let you go
"Why does it always feels like Im caught in an undertow?"
Just stop the games and let me win
You're heart is mine
I wont stop til you give in.

my lost love
Drifting away from something so beautiful
how do you end in disaster each time?
over and over we fight for what we believe in
but we dont know whats right.
we strive for perfect balance in one another
we're each falling off the line
inch by inch we kill eachother
tear apart our hearts in time
who are we fooling?

Have you ever felt like this is it, you've reached the bottom.
nothing matters anymore, no one really cares.
people dont change, they just want you to think they can.
whats the point in believing when you have no hope?
nothing to look forward to, and nothing to have faith in.
when everything is taken away, what do you have left.
is there really nothing?
