i dont want to change, any of my ways
for a girl whos, leaving soon.

because i'm following a path that can't end with you.

shes just another girl, shes just another fuck,
no i wont ever be content nor will i find love.

once he was happy
trust he lost somebody
because she was looking for something
that should never be found.
and she found ahome six feet under ground, away from all the noise of the tortured girls and boys

and boys.....

and she was just another girl she was just another fuck i i was never content nor did i find love.... :( lol
