you said you wanted me to write you a song
well that was a while ago
well guess what your wish has finally come true
so open your eyes and see

this is for the days that you made me feel bad
this is for the times you said you were mad
this is for the cold hard heart inside
this one's for elyse
this is for the times you took my heart away
this for your love that i can not afford
this for the times that i have been ignored
this one's for elyse

and i would tell you all the things that i hate
that i hate your brown eyes and i hate you fair skin
but i could tell you a hundred times more
this one's for you. this one's from me

this is for the way you rolled your eyes at me
this is for the times you said you would be
this is for the everything you've become
this one's for elyse

this is for the day you left me standing there
this is for the way you wore your curly hair
this is for the unforgiveable sin
this one's for elyse

and i would tell you all the things that i hate
that i hate your brown eyes and i hate you fair skin
but i could tell you a hundred times more
this one's for you. this one's from me

this is for what you've done to me
this one's for you elyse, this one's for you
this one's for what you didn't see
this one's for you elyse, this one's for you
and maybe i thought that you were someone else
this one's for you elyse, this one's for you
dont lie to me elyse, don't lie to me

this one's for elyse, this one's for elyse
this one's for the time you always made me feel like i was nothing
this one's for the days you made me think that i was your something
this one's for you my friend
this one's for elyse
