Dave Karofsky sat by himself in the abandoned choir room. It was the end of the day and everyone had left for the night.

He had joined Glee Club shortly after being outed by Azimio, his best friend. It hurt at first but then he had realised, after he'd gained respect amongst his fellow 'Gleeks', that what Azimio and he had had was not friendship, and that what he had with the Glee Club was.

Kurt had given him a chance as his boyfriend not long after he'd joined the club. It was the happiest time in his life. But then Kurt's 'friend' from Dalton transferred and suddenly, it was like Dave and Kurt were only acquaintances, they spoke occasionally, there'd be a quick kiss on the cheek and that was that, he'd go back to hanging out with 'Blaine'.

At first, he'd convinced himself that Kurt was only happy that his friend was at the same school as him, he could get that. But after nearly a month of the nigh-on silent treatment, he'd had enough of it. He called his boyfriend out on it. He remembered it vividly...

'Look Kurt, I like you, a lot, but it's like you don't even want to be with me anymore, it's like I'm just an acquaintance and Blaine's your real boyfriend'

Dave remembered choking on his words and how he spat Blaine out rather than speak it. He remembered his words hurting him more than he could imagine Kurt could. But Kurt was always full of surprises, he realised.

'What? Dave, you're my boyfriend, we go on dates, we hold hands we make-out, all the boyfriend-y things!'

That's the moment, Dave had realised, that Kurt knew what he had meant. Kurt knew that they didn't do any of those things and the first two, you could say, he did with Blaine.

'Bye Kurt, see you at Glee rehearsal'

So now, he was sat in the choir room not 3 hours since losing his boyfriend to his boyfriend's best friend. He wasn't planning to, but he started to play along to the radio, his thick fingers dancing along the piano keys.

And when the singer came in, so did Dave. Dave wondered why, whenever you're feeling down, a song always comes on to express your emotions. And, boy, did this one express his emotions...

Pick you up
later on
what to do?
it doesn't matter 'cause you get
what you want
through and through and if you shatter everything
that we've got
will you call me on occasion
if you like it or not, oh no

Dave thought to himself, at least they were still friends.

So turn it up, take me down
from the wall, it doesn't matter
'cause you get what you want after all
and now you've shattered everything that we had
and you call me on occasion just to see how I am
I'm hanging in

But now time teaches me to pretend it doesn't matter
'cause you get what you want in the end
and now you've shattered everything
he looks a bit like me

He chuckled a bit at the last line; he looked nothing like that pretty boy.

Replaceable
it's cynical
call me useless; just you wait
put me down and call it fate
broken bridges, wasted hate
so just stand beside your man
the boy ain't wrong
act like I never turned you on
all I do is cry

And as he sung the chorus, he did begin to cry. As manly as he was, he loved Kurt.

And soon you'll find you're all alone
you call me on the telephone
who'd have thought that you'd regret
all those evil things you said
now as friends, we say goodbye
I think there's something in my eye

Replaceable
it's cynical
call me useless; just you wait
put me down and call it fate
broken bridges, wasted hate
so just stand beside your man
the boy ain't wrong
act like i never turned you on
all I do is cry

And you watched me die
at least a thousand times
but it's great to hear you're doing fine
tonight, too late to fight
but you've got inside this naive head of mine
now time goes by
you knew you would
you knew you would
I need to understand

And as he sat there, tears in his eyes, he realised he really was,
