    Electra Heart is the girl you run into in the supermarket wearing a faux fur coat and sunglasses, leisurely picking through the avocado. Her cart is filled with champagne and strawberries and she doesn’t even care that you’ve been staring at her from the bakery aisle. She’s angsty, and you can tell that her phone conversation didn’t end well by the way she dramatically dropped her phone and wiped a solitary tear from her cheek. The same cheek that has a eyeliner-drawn heart on it.

    My new album Love + Fear is out April 26. Pre-order now:

    Electra Heart is out now:

    [Verse 1]
    You're never gonna love me, so what's the use?
    What's the point in playing a game you're gonna lose?
    What's the point in saying you love me like a friend?
    What's the point in saying it's never gonna end?

    You're too proud to say that you made a mistake
    You're a coward till the end
    I don't wanna admit that we're not gonna fit
    No, I'm not the type that you like
    Why don't we just pretend?

    Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh
    I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
    I just want it to be perfect
    To believe it's all been worth the fight
    Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh

    [Verse 2]
    You only ever touch me in the dark
    Only if we're drinking can you see my spark
    And only in the evening could you give yourself to me
    'Cause the night is your woman, and she'll set you free

    You're too proud to say that you made a mistake
    You're a coward till the end
    I don't wanna admit that we're not gonna fit
    No, I'm not the type that you like
    Why don't we just pretend?

    Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh
    I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
    I just want it to be perfect
    To believe it's all been worth the fight
    Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh


    Don't wanna know, don’t wanna know, oh
    I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
    I just want it to be perfect
    To believe it's all been worth the fight
    Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh

        Ich ha dich gliäbt und ich liäb dich immerno so we du mich.. Mir händs üs eifach nid gseit.. Und genau dä Moment hät er usgnutzt. I däm Moment wo sie a griffbar und betrunke gsi isch.. Hät er sie zuedröhnt und ihre gwalt a tue. Ich werd ihm da niä vergesse und niä verzeihe. Niä werd ich vergesse, we er mis Läbä und da vo minere Traumfrau zerstört hät. Ich werd niä ufgeh, bis er für sini Untat büesst.

                                            Ok, I know I'm gonna receive a fuckton of hate for this, but I can't hold it in anymore. She loved me, cared for me, was able to do anything for me. She was kind, cheerful, lovely. Such a sweet girl... Started going out with her because I was bored. Yeah I know how it sounds, but I can't change the past. She thought it was real, when I was just, idk... using, playing with her. I've cheated on her twice, abused her emotionaly, and then I just dumped ger out of nowhere. I can't forgive myself what I said to her that night. She cried, asked me why and I just said that she was dumb that she believed I could ever loved her. That she isn't good enough and all similiar stuff... It was high-school, I was popular back then and thought that I can get every girl I want and she should be happy that I even decided to be with her.
                                            If only I had thought twice, maybe I would have treated her better.
                                            We broke up after two years.
                                            I was fucking with random girls after it, had a few girlfriends but it never lasted more than for a month.
                                            And then she found a new boyfriend.
                                            Oh fuck
                                            I was angry and yeah, jealous because I realised what I lost. She was the only person that cared for me she was the one taking me home when I was so drunk that I puked everywhere, she was the one who helped me dealing with my abusive parents, she was the one who believed in me and always supported me in my plans.
                                            And I've lost her. When I saw her with this fuck on snapchat I realised it and
                                            I miss her
                                            I wish I treated her the way I should. I wish I loved her as much as I do now but fuck it's too late and here I am listening to the song drinking vodka and regretting what I did
                                            Atleast she is happy. And maybe I'm finally maturing but wtf am i supposed to do...
                                            Sorry for mistakes, I'm not native & getting drunk i guess

                                              @Xdaviex Thanks for advice, but I did as you said abt 2 weeks ago. We were at the same party and like, we had a moment alone on the balcony. Firstly I just wanted to share my feelings, apologize and wish her well, but then it went further and I started saying things like how I miss her how she deserves better than that piece of shit and similiar stuff. I was pretty drunk... She started crying and was angry, said it's too late, that I had my chance and I lost it, that she loved me like hell but it was me who destroyed it all. I was broken af so I took drugs and got high, the same night I was making out with another girl in front of THIS girl's face... And well I fucked everything up even more. Like completely. It was honestly two hours after our conversation. It's summer break soon and I guess I lost my chance completely since she avoids me all the time since the situation...

                                              Harry Potter aw i’m so sorry, but the thing is hurting girls feelings is like a knife in ur heart , she really was hurt and after a while she had to have the courage to move on and she did and yeah that sucks but if i we’re you i would say sorry and why u are , and that it’s fine to hate u but don’t try to like get very close in like a few seconds just empty ur heart to her.
