I Wonder Why

Rain rain go away
Because of you the pain will stay
From start to finish I'll wonder why
These scars look good in this messed up lie
I slit my throat, you put a band-aid on my heart
You put my life together, I tear it apart
You hate me for cutting and so do I
You say you love me if it's true I shouldn't want to die
Honestly, I'm everything but shy about what I do
But don't worry I won't tell anyone it's because of you
I'll always love you
That part you know is true
But as I cut deeper and deeper into my skin
The same thought will run through my mind again and again
So from start to finish I'll wonder why
These scars look good in this messed up lie.
