#1
At first I was happy
Isn't that how it always goes?
Writing songs so sappy
Thick enough to make you wanna choke
Lately I've been thinking
I know that's a stretch for me
I'm just so damn tired
Of wearing this stuff on my sleeve

It's painted my shirt and all my things red
And I don't know how to wash this stain out

How can I live without you now?
Well I think I'll be just fine
One cliche breakup song
From getting your face the hell out of my mind
Without you days seem bright and blue
No worries seem to plague me now
A pretty little face and an empty shell
Are just two things I'll happily live without

You say there's a problem
Well I'd have to agree
Only one way to solve them
Gotta give up on the dream
I take back all the nice things
Just a lovey-dovey smokescreen
Give me some time my dear
And I may even forget your name

A hint of clarity comes calling
And the one thing that I'm afraid to ask is

How can I live without you now?
Well I think I'll be just fine
One cliche breakup song
From getting your face the hell out of my mind
Without you days seem bright and blue
No worries seem to plague me now
A pretty little face and an empty shell
Are just two things I'll happily live without

I loved this verse.
The whole song, I could really feel and relate.
it has a really well put together "I don't need you" feel, with a casual type touch, and it works really well.

Only part that I don't like too much is the use of "lovey dovey".
By all means though, its a really great piece.
