The worst things come without waring

But only people can lie

The butterfly effected my life

But it's too cold for butterflies to fly

I guess she's been this way since eighteen

But I have only seen it lately

Can't clean up this mess she's making

Memories stained with blood

And I can only hope you can forget

The ones with guns trying to get their fill

'Cause even though I try real hard

I know I never will

The words I wish I said I wish had made you better

I tried not to let you down

They can only best you only if let them

And catch you if they can

The butterfly's still effective

That's when you started to lie

While my savior's still defective

It's not too cruel for butterflies to die

I guess she's been this way since eighteen

But I have only seen it lately

Can't clean up this mess she's making

Memories stained with lust

And I can only hope you can forget

The ones with guns trying to get their fill

'Cause even though I try real hard

I know I never will

The words I wish I said I wish had made you better

I tried not to let you down

They can only best you only if let them

And catch you if they can

You can go and you can stay

And we can can all pretend nothing has changed

Say what you want and go where you wish

I just thought you were stronger than this

I guess she's been this way since eighteen

But I have only seen it lately

Can't clean up this mess she's making

Memories stained with love

And I can only hope you can forget

The ones with guns trying to get their fill

'Cause even though I try real hard

I know I never will

The words I wish I said I wish had made you better

I tried not to let you down

They can only best you only if let them

And catch you if they can

A/N- one small decision in a cross road to move on, or to dwell on the past, can change everything forever. The past is the past and it doesn't have to last.
