I get that feeling. The one that stings and brings the pain of remembering
I gave up trying. I lost the battle, safe to say I fought for nothing.
I never thought I'd say this honestly but I regret it.
It hurts to realize that you're the one that I've been missing.

I can't move on even though you're reckless and careless, destroyed by ambition.
Just clear the tracks and follow the right path so I can see you back.

I saw you walk away without a look in my direction 'cause there was no way.
You saw the lack of my ambition and passion in this pointless competition.

I knew you well back then.
Yeah, things were easier and better in 2010 but now I figured you out.
This is a scene, a social scheme, there's just no in between.
You say 'screw this', we'll say goodbye to all the things I hope you'll miss.

I say 'fuck this, go on and live', I'll be the one you'll miss.
'cause I'm still waiting, I've been dwelling on how things should have been.
I hate you. Oh girl I just wanna break you.
I know though I told you that I'm never second in your attention.

I'm never second in your attention.
I hate you I know.

Can't you see that we were lost and blinded by the cost.
The price to pay was too heavy, it crushed the hopes of a you and me.

I'm optimistic in a world that contradicts.
I'm realistic and artistic in this love/hate business.
I think it's safe to say I'm a mess dressed in stress.

You say no, just let go.
I think it's safe to say I'm a mess dressed in stress.
You say no, just let go.
Oh girl I just wanna break you.

So just let go.
