lyrics

i was living a lie
all i wanted was to wither and die
i didn't deny
that i was meant to shiver and sigh
a sliver of pride
believing in a love that would try
to better my mind
deliver what i never could find
and then you moved me
oh
like a hollywood movie
i knew we were meant to be together
and truly
in love like a real romeo and a juliet
like we were newlywed
oh what we knew we had

step one
tell him you're just friend
tell him that his heart is something to be entrusted
step two
give him a kiss
let him know that you are longing to be pressed to his lips
step three
tell him you love him
tell him that you know that all along it was just him
step four
cut his name in your flesh
tell him that you never knew the touch of someone to be better than this

a couple slits
beautiful cuts
into your wrist
it wasn't much
i was convinced
that you never would leave me
would never deceive me
my name was in your skin
you would always believe in me
but you were teetering
and slipping away
and i was patient and pathetic throughout every day
i would've gave everything to have faith in you
if i hadn't loved you so much i'd've never have hated you

step five
give him all that you are
make him feel like it's a miracle when you're in his arms
step six
love him larger than life
reach into his heart and give him all the will to survive
step seven
let it wither and wilt
tearing everything apart you know the two of you built
step eight
tell him that it was not true
and walk away from everything although he belongs to you

i drew my ring around your finger in pen
it seems so infinite
just like there wasn't an ending
i drew a picture of you to make you grin
to see you smile again
and watch your spirit ascending
i walked into a river colder than sin
to feel the touch of your skin
to feel your presence within me
now i am writing down my trying lament
realizing it was pretend
denying all the love and time we had spent

step one
tell him you're just friend
tell him that his heart is something to be entrusted
step two
give him a kiss
let him know that you are longing to be pressed to his lips
step three
tell him you love him
tell him that you know that all along it was just him
step four
cut his name in your flesh
tell him that you never knew the touch of someone to be better than this
step five
give him all that you are
make him feel like it's a miracle when you're in his arms
step six
love him larger than life
reach into his heart and give him all the will to survive
step seven
let it wither and wilt
tearing everything apart you know the two of you built
step eight
tell him that it was not true
and walk away from everything although he belongs to you
