I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
My scars remind me that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

Bryan sighed as he walked through the park and sipped his vodka. His thoughts were on a certain girl. He didn't get why she was acting the way she was. 'She is supposed to be my girlfriend and yet she treats me like I'm the enemy.' Bryan thought to himself. He saw the changes in her, from the not eating to different scars appearing on her arm. She always tuned him out when he asked.

Drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
I'm pissed cause you came around
Why don't you just go home
Cause you channel all your pain
And I can't help you fix yourself
Your making me insane
All I can say is

She was really starting to piss him off. She would always say it was nothing, and it was driving him insane. 'Doesn't she realize that she can die that way?' Bryan thought to himself. It was making him insane that as much as he tried to help her, she just walked away.

I tried to help you once
A kiss will only vise
I saw you going down
But you never realized
That your drowning in the water
So I offered you my hand
Compassions in my nature
Tonight is our last dance

Tonight they were supposed to get together. She was wearing a black dress with black gloves to cover the scars on her arms. They danced to the song 'Back at one' by Brian McKnight. They both knew that it was the last song they would dance to.

I'm drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
You shouldn't ever came around
Why don't you just go home?
Cause your drowning in the water
And I tried to grab your hand
And I left my heart open

But you didn't understand
You fix yourself

Did she not get that he wanted to help her? Maybe she didn't get that someone wanted to help her. Bryan didn't understand her anymore. Hell he didn't understand her when they first started dating but now she was even more confusing then she was back then when everything seemed to be perfect. He was leaving in a week.

I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life
I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

Bryan left the following week. He went back to Russia. At least he knew that he had tried to help her, but she didn't ever accept it.

(I bet you are now wondering who the girl is, you are about to find out) Hilary had died the same week Bryan had left for Russia. She left him a note that said: Don't worry about it, because as the song goes we have to move on with our own lives. Love Hil.
