Title: Best Of You
I’ve got another confession to make
I’m your fool
Everyone’s got their chains to break
Holdin’ you
Were you born to resist or be abused?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Are you gone and onto someone new?
I needed somewhere to hang my head
Without your noose
You gave me something that I didn’t have
But had no use
I was too weak to give in
Too strong to lose
My heart is under arrest again
But I break loose
My head is giving me life or death
But I can’t choose
I swear I’ll never give in
I refuse
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
You trust, you must
Confess
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Oh…
Oh…Oh…Oh…Oh…
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
The life, the love
You die to heal
The hope that starts
The broken hearts
You trust, you must
Confess
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
I’ve got another confession my friend
I’m no fool
I’m getting tired of starting again
Somewhere new
Were you born to resist or be abused?
I swear I’ll never give in
I refuse
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
You trust, you must
Confess
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Oh…

I am dedicating this song to my friend, Ms. I aka Ballz.
Dear Ms. I,
Losing him is not the end of the world. You are still loved by a lot of people. Hurting yourself with a blade does not change a thing although you said that it made you feel better.
Stand up to him, Stand up for yourself…

  1. i heard this from a fren’s mum telling him this morning – the most important thing, other human beings are not the sole aim of your life

  2. foo fighters. hmm. i never knew you were a fan of them. thought you bsb punya fan. LOL.
    hun, i love him. more than you can ever imagine. never felt the way i feel for him in my past relationships. i know that a lot of people still care about me, but my heart’s only with him, and nothing else matters. even the pain is bearable, just for those moments of tenderness he gives me.
    and btw, it’s been scientifically proven that cutting releases endorphines and gives a temporary high. explains why i feel like i’m on a K high every time i do so LOL.
    something i should learn from buddhist teachings: form no attachment to anyone/anything in life, if you truly want to attain true happiness. or something like that lah. it’s true, if you do not get attached to something, there won’t be any pain from losing it.
    but i’m not a monk. heh heh.

  3. fuck lah. i typed such a long comment but it just disappeared when i tried to post it. nevermind. i’ll retype it to the best of my memory.
    anyway, thank you hun. that’s a such a sweet gesture. but i never knew you were a fan of foo fighters. LOL. the last time i saw you, you were singing along to a way outdated song by bsb. heh heh.
    but i really love him beyond comprehension. i know it’s irrational, and i do not understand why of all the men i’ve dated, he’s the only one i’ve felt such an intense emotion for. anything is worth it, just for a few moments of tenderness he can afford me.
    he got the best of me, but to this day, i feel that it is worth it. he’s not all bad, i still remember how much in love we were. and i guess instead of aching at how things have turned out, i’d rather cherish the happy memories we share together.
    btw, it’s been scientifically proven that cutting caused the body to release endorphines, which in turn causes a temporary ‘high’. that probably explains why i feel like i’m on a K high everytime i cut.
    nah… don’t worry. that’s the last time i’ll do that kinda shit. gotta stop and start finding alternative ways of dealing with heartbreak. yoga for example. heh. and maybe attend a few services at the nearest church. i used to love going for friday mass for the hymns. that was an eternity ago though.
    buddhist teachings tell us not to form attachments so as to achieve true happiness. i agree. by getting too attached to someone/something, you suffer pain from losing it, or if not, uncertainty whether you can keep it.
    but i’m no monk. so i guess, i’ll love as intensely as ever. for anyone who has not loved before, has not lived before.

  4. p.s. i shall henceforth be referred to Irene and not ballz, ballballz, ihafbigbigballz etc. anyone who has the temerity to address me by the aforementioned monikers shall suffer a fate worse than death. and i mean it. grr.

  5. in that case, i shall refer you to a related post by kennysia at: http://www.kennysia.com/archives/2005/02/cutting_away_de.php
    altho’ one might says cutting relieves you from stress, i think dats self-deluding, it does only the opposite. when you saw the scars, it again re-iterates the unhappy occurences.. and the paradox is that at the very same time you’re hurting yourself, you’re actually hurting peeps who care 4 you; when in fact you’re cutting yourself for peeps who don’t necessarily care. if you get what i mean.. anyway, for you i pray that the pain would ease soon.. šŸ™‚

  6. skategal: heh. kenny wrote that post for me actually. =) it’s self deluding, true, but for the brief moments it hurts, it actually distracts from the emotional pain. sigh.

  7. Aiya… nevermind le Irene… Frank actually enjoy ur little “souvenir” alot… I told him that u actually left it as a thank you for his great extend of friendship to u… But he seems afraid to accept my explanation (although I can tell he very much would like to think so!) =P
    KAKAKAKAKAKKA!

  8. wene : HAHAHAHAHAHHA! I do find it hilarious… even after hearing about it from Frank and then you… ROFLMAO!!!
    Can u juz imagine Frank’s face when he sees that little black souvenir u left him??? *PRICELESS wei* Kakakakaka!
