Lyrics
You always were my only tragedy
You were my muse, my everything
I never was too good at make believing,
never one to accept to defeat and
what you want is what you got
and what I need is what you're not
all alone, I sang my songs
you messed with my heart all along

You were meant for bigger things
You built relationships on foundations of dreams
and I don't know if it's possible to live with the consequence;
How can you live like this?

How am I supposed to feel this hollow?
I'm just an addict of your love
I tried, I tried, I tried
I'll never get it back to where we used to be tomorrow
The truth is so hard to swallow
I tried, I tried, I tried, I'll never get it right
I tried, I tried, I'll never get it write

A song where love is honest,
sing it loud so she hears the promise
the confidence that walls
my heart is paper thin
Couldn't find the strength enough to keep you in
Because with you I never had the best luck,
Tried so hard but you don't really care a fudge,
It's time to face the music,
because the music's all I have

How am I supposed to feel this hollow?
I'm just an addict of your love
I tried, I tried, I tried
I'll never get it back to where we used to be tomorrow
The truth is so hard to swallow
I tried, I tried, I tried, I'll never get it right
I tried, I tried, I'll never get it write

Say your love was only for your gain
and now you do it all over again
Insanity makes my heart beat for only you alone

How am I supposed to feel this hollow?
I'm just an addict of your love
I tried, I tried, I tried
I'll never get it back to where we used to be tomorrow
The truth is so hard to swallow
I tried, I tried, I tried, I'll never get it right
I tried, I tried, I'll never get it write

I tried, I tried, I'll never get it right
