    I'm never gonna fall

    I Should Know Better Than Writing This.

    I should know better than loving a depressed person who can not be with me. I should know better than arguing with my parents about everything that is unimportant in this life. I should know better than always wanting the last word. I should know better than buying things I...

    ...

    I was stupid to believe I could trust you again, I was stupid to believe the words, "I'll never hurt you and throw you away again" actually were the ******* truth, and not something just to be said. I should have known better to let you back in, and start to trust you again...
