I could have treated you better
But you couldn't have treated me worse
But it's he who laughs last
Is he who cries first

Sometimes I feel I know strangers
Better than I know my friends
Why must a beginning
Be the means to an end

The stones from my enemies
These wounds will mend
But I cannot survive
The roses from my friends
