It always ends the same. I gave you all my heart just to watch it get thrown away, thrown away. It takes a toll on my soul because I’m starting to believe that love’s just a game we play. Is it all just a game?
One day I’ll heal but I’ll be covered in scars, and I’ll never forget watching it all fall apart when you finally came clean about the lies and the games that you played from the start. It’s like every second we spent together is always on repeat in the back of my mind. What was I thinking when I gave you my life? You knew it would end. You knew this would die.
You’ll never find another one like me. I think I’d give you another chance if you deserved one. I think I’d have room in my heart but I simply reserved none. I’d let you beg on your knees for forgiveness at last but you’re just a mistake. Please give me my life back.
You made me so insecure and unsure of everything I thought was real. I just wish I could rewind and go back to a time when I knew what it was like to feel. I hope someday someone ruins you the way you ruined me. I just want you to know how it feels.
I want you to see it’s like my heart was made to be broken. Why can’t I let go? Now that it’s over I just need you to know. I think I’d give you another chance if you deserved one. I think I’d have room in my heart but I simply reserved none. I’d let you beg on your knees for forgiveness at last but you’re just a mistake. Please give me my life, give me my life back.
They say it’s better to have loved than never at all, but I can’t seem to find any good in being thrown at the wall. I’m not sure if I can stand up from this fall. I lay tossing and turning and trying to forget. I thought I’d be over you by now. With all you put me through, I’m full of regret.
I wish I could just forget somehow. You’ll never find another one like me. I think I’d give you another chance if you deserved one. I think I’d have room in my heart but I simply reserved none. I’d let you beg on your knees for forgiveness at last but you’re just a mistake. Please give me my life back. Please give me my life back, give me my life back. Give me my life
Anti-vegans: Bunny-hugging vegans are always romanticizing nature and think that everything is just like Bambi where the animals skip and play all day long and humans are the big bad guys. You vegans are completely unrealistic and brainwashed and have no idea how red in tooth and claw nature is. Nature is cruel, heartless and without morality or mercy. Deal with it, you Bambi-loving bleeding hearts.
Also anti-vegans: Animal agriculture is just wonderful. I’ve seen cows in the meadow having so much fun skipping around eating grass it’s truly what farming is all about. How anyone could think that the animals have it bad is beyond me. Farmers love their animals and treat them just like pets, or members of their own family. Cows love being milked, get to be with their calves all the time and chickens happily give their eggs to the farmer every morning because everyone on the farm is friends. ‘Happy meat’ is a thing because I believe that the pigs are perfectly comfortable being slaughtered after the farmer treated them so well. They owe us. Farms are animal heaven, I read a kiddies book about it once.
One of the most beautiful, regal, dignified, and awe-inspiring creatures on earth, the Bearded Vulture hails from one of most maligned and shamed castes of avians that exists, Scavengers. This one happens to be my #1 favorite bird and has a 9-foot wingspan sooo….
QUESTION: Can we hope to preserve, in the midst of modern America, any such remnant of our continent’s primordial landscape, any such sample of true wildness—a gloriously inhospitable place, full of predators and prey, in which nature is still allowed to be red in tooth and claw?Can that sort of place be reconciled with human demands and human convenience? Time alone, and our choices, will tell. But if the answer is yes, the answer is Yellowstone.
