    And Thats Why They Run...

    I cant help but just claim everything to be mine. And that's why boys don't stay around long. I'm obsessive and I cant stop myself from bothering them. Until its too late and they wont talk to me at all. Don't know when Ill learn my lesson.

    I'm so stupid. I really don't mean to get attached. I try and tell myself not to. I try and refuse it. But I get attached too fast once I decide that I like you. And I hate it.
