I wrote this song to hurt you. Leave me out of your little plans.
You can hold your breath 'til you turn blue. Stick your head in the sand.
I've tried and tried to tell you. Sulked for days and days.
Goodbye kisses are all in the past; let's trade slaps in the face.

Look at you sitting in the corner. A victim without a crime.
And it's somebody else's fault that you've used up your last lifeline.
This is my strategic exit. Gonna hit the ground and roll.
Never said it when you meant it. Could have saved your soul.

I wanna know, I wanna know what you're feeling.
I wanna know if it could slow down your breathing.

But there was never anything up my sleeve;
only so many ways to leave.

I wrote this song to hurt you. Hope it breaks your heart.
What the hell was your problem that night at the bar?

Your heart is leather and your blood runs cold. You're not fooling anyone.
Your heart is leather and your blood runs cold,
cold on my hands.
