I would be lying to you if I said that during this time of my life I didn't fight back. I was constantly fighting back with all of the mistakes he had made and how they way things were now was all his fault. I tried hard to make sure that he felt guilty about what he had done and how it made me feel and I blamed him for our break up.

The first time I heard the song I got all sad and teary because I know what it’s like to have someone close to you hooked on drugs and it is hard to get out.
