Understand

By Carter Tachikawa

(ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: This song is *not* about someone I know. I'm not angry with anyone. I just felt like writing an angry song like this for a change. I swear, I'll go back to happy stuff soon.)

And after all this time, I come to know the truth
There was nothing magic between me and you
I can't help it if you think loving you was a sin
And I know the things I should have known then
But still, I can't say that you weren't to blame
Thought you could diss me without speaking my name
Thought you could get away with all you said
And wish I would carry your words 'till I'm dead

Well, life doesn't work like that
And if you come crawling, I won't take you back
And if you are lonely, I'll just sit down and laugh
It's your own misfortune you're falling down...

Chorus:
I never asked you to forgive me
I doubt that you would ever believe me
I'd be honest but all you want to hear are lies
Staring blankly at me with your glazed eyes
I only wanted you to understand
But now I don't think you can
Do me a favor, get out of my dreams
Get out of them and stay away from me

What happened to all that we used to share?
Mocking me as if you don't know I am there
It's ironic that you're telling me to grow up
When you're the one whining about our *love*
I think you should step away from the line
Give it up. I don't want you back this time
You were much sweeter so long ago
Never thought you'd run and leave me alone

Well, life doesn't work like that
And if you come crawling, I won't take you back
And if you are lonely, I'll just sit down and laugh
It's your own misfortune you're falling down...

(Chorus)

Now it didn't have to end like this
All I wanted was more than a kiss
But, too bad, you reap what you sow
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Whoa whoa!

(Chorus x 2)
Only wanted you to understand
Don't think you can
Stay out of my dreams
Stay away from me


(BEFORE ANYONE REVIEWS: This is, and I repeat, not against *anyone*! I'm all right. Really, I am! I just was in the mood to write some angry music for a change. So don't flame thinking I'm being cruel. I have to experiment with a little bit of everything, don't I? So with that in mind, review and please don't flame. A flame does not help me at all. Criticize me all you want but don't flame. Later!)
