We all make mistakes
and I know this because
I once starved my body
thinking that was the only
way I could become beautiful.

We all make mistakes
and I know this because
I once cut my skin thinking
it was the only way
I could let out my pain.

We all make mistakes
and I know this because
I once made my Mother cry
when she saw the bones
sticking out of my own body.

We all make mistakes
and I know this because
I hated my school pictures
so much that I threw them
away in the trash and had to
fish them out because my parents
were so angry at what I had done.

We all make mistakes
and I know this because
it is what composes the strings
that let us play the music
of being human.

And I know you keep
saying that if you could
reverse everything you
would but that is honestly
not even an apology because
if you reversed everything you
probably just would reverse the
fact that I found out.

And I know you keep
saying that if you could
reverse everything you
would not have fallen for
that other girl but that
is not true because
you fucking did and you
were even asking how you
could make her like you back.

And the truth is
we cannot reverse anything
and I have wanted for so long
to go back in time and reverse
things that I fucked up
and if I could I would
but we cannot and that
is the final damn music note.

—  We cannot reverse things.

How could it be
that tendons bound to bones within my feet
were bound to believe
that they should move themselves to up and leave?

My bones are wrong sometimes
Sometimes my bones are wrong
Oh, I know I believe it,
And so do my bones.

Hellogoodbye - Betrayed By Bones

Oh, how could it be
That tendons bound to bones within my feet
Were bound to believe
That they should move themselves to up and leave
I should say that I’m sorry on their behalf 
I should say something funny 
But you will not laugh 

Oh, I didn’t see the steps I took 
Had taken you from me 
Where would we be 
If I let myself be swept away to sea
I would cry out to tell you
But you’d not be there 
I would cry out to tell you 
But you wouldn’t care
