 Watch: New Singing Lesson Videos Can Make Anyone A Great Singer

Y'know that I want your loving
But my logic tells me that it ain't never gonna happen
And then my defense'd say I didn't want it anyway
But you know sometimes I'm a liar

Could you ever want me to love you 
Could you ever want me to care
Disregard my nervousness
Please ignore my vacant stares

'Cause just what I've been through
Is nothing like where I'm going to
Give me some sign to pursue
A promise 

And your unhappy
This is only a guess
Do you know what it's like to hate
When it's way down deep inside

Oh god I hate what's been done to my life
I could rule the pain 
I could rule the night
Or would I ruin my salvation

Ruin my mind rules your pains
Rulers of the night
Ruin your salvation
Ruin your mind
