"All Hail The Heartbreaker"

Logan sat on his couch, staring at the glass of whiskey in his hand. Why was he here? There was a party only a few dorms over and yet here he was, King of Parties, and he was sitting alone in a darkened room staring at a glass.

I had the notion that you'd make me change my ways
My bad habits would be gone in a matter of days
I had the feeling that you'd open up my eyes
To a whole new world that had since been in disguise

Was the time really that short? Had he only known Rory that small amount of time? It seems like it's been forever... How did she manage to do so much damage in such a short period. He should be out there, partying, having fun! Before he was stuck as an echo of how he used to be and a shadow of how his father is.

But that day will most likely never come for me
And it's just my luck to end up getting stuck
To everything you are

Logan wished he could be that guy for her. He wasn't stupid, he could see that this casualness between them was eating her up inside. He wished he could be a boyfriend; someone to be counted on and depended on when she needed him. But he couldn't drag her into that world with him and it was just so ironic that he was so, totally, completely into her and he had to let her go. He wished he could let her go anyway...

So tonight I'll sit and pick apart your pictures
And overanalyze your words
But the truth is that I've never fallen so hard
It's taking everything in me
Just to forget your sweater so far

Logan was not stupid. He knew it would be best to break things off with Rory completely. But he was selfish and he wanted to have her brightness, even just for a little while. He knew he was getting too close and that some day soon, he would end up paying for it with both their hearts.

And so he'd sit. And watch his scotch. And think about her and what she was doing and what she said and who she was with. Because at least right now she was his. Even if he couldn't be hers.

I had the notion that you'd make me forget the world
But your indecisive mind shows me that
You are "just another girl"
I had the feeling that those looks you gave me were real
What if I ripped your heart apart at the seams
Maybe then you'd know how I feel

Logan wondered what brought Rory to him to begin with. What made her want to be "one of the many" to quote her. Rory was special and deserved to be with someone that would show that to her. He longed to be that someone, but could he do it? Was he strong enough to not let society dictate his life? Rory had shown him this whole world that wasn't filled with obligations and a future already planned out. But could he take that leap for her? Could he leave his safety net of meaninglessness and try the world of risk where he might get hurt?

But that day will most likely never come for me
And it's just my luck to end up getting stuck
To everything you are

So tonight I'll sit and pick apart your pictures
And overanalyze your words
But the truth is that I've never fallen so hard
It's taking everything in me
Just to forget your sweater so far

No, Logan decided, he was not that strong. Maybe, one day soon he would be. But right now? Now, he's better off sitting alone in the dark just thinking about her.

I can honestly say
That I never, ever, ever felt this way
Your lips, your eyelashes, your skin
These are the parts of your body
That cause my comatose to begin

I can honestly say
That I never, ever, ever felt this way
Your lips, your eyelashes, your skin
These are the parts of your body
That cause my comatose to begin

But could Logan really say no? Could he really walk away? Rory was his now, but tomorrow? Or the next day? What happens when she gets fed up? What happens when she wants a decision? Could he really say goodbye forever...?

I will sleep another day
I don't really need to anyway
What's the point when my dreams are infected
With words you used to say
I will breathe in a moment
As long as I keep my distance
I wouldn't want to go messing anything up

Logan spent day and night thinking about her now, how much worse will it be when he won't be able to see her or talk to her except for the occasional awkwardness of ex-lovers? Would he end up spending the rest of his life thinking 'what if?'

So don't go worrying about me
It's not like I think about you constantly
So maybe I do, but that shouldn't affect
Your life anymore
I knew it the moment you walked into the door

So don't go worrying about me
It's not like I think about this constantly
So maybe I do, but that shouldn't affect
Your life anymore
I knew it the moment you walked into the door

Logan wearily shut his eyes and tried to stop thinking about it. It was no use speculating about it. Logan cared for Rory, which was more than he could say for every other woman he had been with. He could not drag her into society like his family was dragging him.

I'll let you get the best of me
Because there's nothing else that I do well
I'll let you get the best of me
Because there's nothing else that I do well
I'll be the giver and you'll be the taker
I guess that's how this one's gonna go

I'll be the giver and you'll be the taker


You've got me down on my knees and I proclaim…


All hail the heartbreaker
