We never saw from each other's sides Or eye to eye Just eye for eye, lie for lie, fight or flight So much baggage, need a luggage rack But we carry on with our public spats and our feuds Oh, back in the news Love taps when I dissed you Like it was fun Actually used to run Back to the booth Jump back in the studio Give you a tongue Lash out on you Laughed at a stomach tat with the tomb Stone it was funny back in our youth But then it wasn't after we knew That we were done and actually through (and actually through) But if there's one fraction of truth If it could be spun back I would do so many things different 'Cause it was such a dumbass excuse You hit me once And that I would use to continue the pattern of abuse Why did I punch back? Girls your dad is a scumbag I'm confused because How come you can be a low illusion How come, how come, you can be a liar and a good father? A good dad, but a bad husband Why are you a good father? A great dad, but a bad husband You wouldn't beat our love with a writer's block Just a line that's hot, that I forgot We laughed a little, cried a lot I'll never forget when you came home and you held Hailey Day before you went to jail and daily How we would wait for that mail lady Or by the phone, for mom to call And I watch you pull yourself up And we decided on giving it one more try despite it all You're my lightning rod When my sky gets dark I'm your shiny rocks In that tiny box When we tied the knot When we broke the knot Every line we crossed We were supposed to not Every time we fought Being souls they got Thrown too far Words that we said that we didn't mean The words that we meant that we didn't say The ones that we thought that should've said Letters written that we could've read Which maybe would've lead to some good instead And had this put to bed But I'd be lying still if I said I wasn't sitting here asking myself How come you can be a low illusion How come, how come, you can be a liar and a good father? A good dad, but a bad husband Why are you a good father? A great dad, but a bad husband (Dad) (you said) Forever be a hero in my eyes I reply There's always another side to a good father A great dad, but a bad husband We brought out the worst in each other Someone had to make the sparring end 'Cause I loved you but I hated that me And I don't wanna see that side again But I'm sorry Kim More than you could ever comprehend Leaving you was fucking harder than Sawing off a fucking body limb Once upon a time where all we had Maybe that's what drew us to each other It was true love shit that we never knew was possible We might have loved each other too much And maybe that's what made us do what we did to each other All the screw-ups 'Cause you always thought that you was more in love with me And I was thinking I was more in love than you was For all the times that we thought it worked 'Till we saw how wrong we were When the dust settles now And all the dirt And if I touch the rawest nerve All I want is for us to not hurt And it's been an exhaustive search to find the words But I just heard mockingbird And got the urge to jot me some verses And thoughts the purpose was not to stir up open wounds I've caused a few, and so have you Or argue who's fault it was Partly yours, partly mine But really no ones, this is so tough I'm getting choked up Oh f*ck it, we both suck We broke up, got back together We both thought we had forever Not bad people, just bad together We was so nuts, back stab each other, another blow struck But there's no ducking this blow 'Cause it's over And it's closure But, I'm not so sure how to close this I just don't know how some people could be so good at one thing And so fucked at a whole 'nother shit it's no wonder How come, how come, you can be a lord and a loser? How come, how come, you can be a liar and a good father? A good dad, but a bad husband Why are you a good father? A great dad, but a bad husband (Dad) (you said) Forever be a hero in my eyes I reply There's always another side to a good father A great dad, but a bad husband
