The love I gave you, was too perfect for you. And you know I tried to make your dreams come true. And you knew this you still went and threw this, threw this away (away). It’s okay.

Thunder fire you. For all the lies you told me. Thunder fire you. For when you cheated on me. Thunder fire you. You never did deserve nome. E go better for you. So thunder fire you.
