Had a talk with my ex and knew for certain I was bugged
So I let the door slam feelin’ worse then I was
She said all I ever made her feel was hurt and disgust
Which in turn hurt cause that was my version of love
Joe’s making reference to his former relationship with Tahiry. Where he lost out on love because he didn’t read between the lines of things she was really trying to say to him, and also doesnt feel he treated her like she mattered. (there have been reports of abuse). maybe he was too protective, He’s saying he didnt know any better.
She probably felt pain at the thoughts he declared. She’d seen a door slam from dream to nightmare. She said what he felt in pain and lost trust, the thought in turn hurts cause that was his version of love.
Still in love perhaps?
Joe and Tahiry have a little discussion about their relationship in the video below:
