Unfortunately, this is a true story.


I was 23 and
You were 17
I met you at a party
But it wasn't my scene
I tried to get to know you,
But you were really mean
In the middle of a sentence
You stood up and tried to leave.

A couple nights later,
I got another chance.
I went to pick you up
In a friend of mine's van.
I didn't say a word
Til it started getting late,
Then I asked if I could kiss you
And you punched me in the face.

I asked you if you wanna date me,
Cause I don't want to be just friends.
You said "I'd really love to Baby,
We'll be together until the end"

We moved away and then
You start getting strange.
You were always really angry
And you always called me names.
You started getting violent
And you cheated on me,
That's when I decided
It was time for you to leave.

I asked "Do you still wanna date me?
Cause I wanna be just friends"
You said "I really love you, Baby,
We'll be together until the end."
But I just wasn't gonna have it,
This isn't what I thought Love was.
I thought that I was really happy,
But I guess I was just drunk.

So go on and tell your lies,
And pretend to black your eyes
While I write another song
About all that you've done wrong.
There's a million other guys
Who will listen to your cries,
But one day you'll see
They could never be as good as me.

You threw my guitar out the window,
And watched it crash into pieces.
Right now I wish you were a dude, bro,
Cause you'd be right there behind it!

I thought that I was really happy,
But I guess I was just drunk.
