You Didn't Stand By Me, No, Not At All.

...So tell me something I don't understand....
....You said you loved me, and that's a fact
And then you left me...said you felt trapped
Well, some things you can't explain away
But the heartache's hit me til' this day.

You didn't stand by me
Not not at all
You didn't stand by me
No way

All the times when we were close
I remember those things the most.
I seen all my dreams come tumbling down
I can't be happy without you around
So alone I keep the wolves at bay
And there's only one thing I can say.

You didn't stand by me
Not not at all
You didn't stand by me
No way

You must explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me?

You didn't stand by me.
No, not at all.....

Now I got a job, but it don't pay.
I need new clothes.
I need somewhere to stay.
But without all of these things I can do.
But without your love, I won't make it through.
But you don't understand my point of view.
I suppose there's nothing I can do...

You didn't stand by me
No not at all
You didn't stand by me
No way...

Sadly that's exactly the reaction I expected.
Nice use of a Clash song I have not listened to them in ages

It ironically came on in the restaurant when Meg and I were leaving after dinner tonight, where Guy didn't show up, and I thought it was too appropriate.

Rob, I half expected her to post Dido's "White Flag," but this is edgier not to mention ironic. It's not like he's going to pay any attention to it to begin with. Ms. BS will & her cellulite-bubbling ass cells will jump with joy.

That's the next painting I should do....an ass cut open and bubbling out with cellulite.

Typical you, Anonymous. It'd be hell of a painting, if not a little gory.

Good song choice, though not enough melancholic. But since it was on in the restaurant, the earworm stuck.

I love "White Flag," but I'm not emotionally there yet. Logical me has been there for months, but emotional/heart me totally isn't.

Same old story, same old tune. Which is why I think indifference is the way to go. Get along with people, blend into society if you choose to, be yourself, be proud of yourself, but accept the fact that at the end of the day, we're ultimately all going to be alone whether we have a roommate wife/husband/partme or not.

There's this newsstand outside Argo Tea by school, with free local papers and zines. One's called "Singles Choice." Out of all the newspapers available, that one's always empty. I should take picture of it. It's ironic. sad and true.

Oh, Guy. Why'd you blurt out full-on "I love you's" if you didn't mean them in the first place, you idiot? Girls believe that kind of bullshit.

Like leading cattle to slaughter.

You're taking it too hard. He'll be back.
