Open Wounds Lyrics

In the dark with the music on
Wishing I was somewhere else
Taking all your anger out on me
Somebody help

I would rather rot alone
Then spend a minute with you
I'm gone, I'm gone

And you can't stop me from falling apart
'Cause my self-destruction is all your fault

How could you, how could you, how could you hate me?
When all I ever wanted to be was you?
How could you, how could you, how could you love me?
When all you ever gave me were open wounds?
Open wounds

Downstairs the enemy sleeps
Leaving the TV on
Watching all the dreams
We had turn into static

Doesn't matter what I do
Nothings gonna change
I'm never good enough

And you can't stop me from falling apart
'Cause my self-destruction is all your fault

How could you, how could you, how could you hate me?
When all I ever wanted to be was you?
How could you, how could you, how could you love me?
When all you ever gave me were open wounds?

Tell me why you broke me down
And betrayed my trust in you
I'm not giving up, giving in
When will this war end?
When will it end

You can't stop me from falling apart
You can't stop me from falling apart
You can't stop me from falling apart
'Cause my self-destruction is all your fault

How could you, how could you, how could you hate me?
When all I ever wanted to be was you?
How could you, how could you, how could you love me?
When all you ever gave me were open wounds?

How could you, how could you
How could you, how could you
All I ever wanted to be was you
All you ever gave me were open wounds

My parents emotionally abuse me and my dad has hit me before. He only hits me sometimes. This song reminds me of my parents and I wonder why they say they love me and then treat me like they hate me.

I love this song. I'm going to see their concert at the end of this month. I hope that they sing this. It's great.
