I got it, you need it; but you just refuse to see it.
Always talking a good game; but in the end it’s just the same.
A series of one night stands; when are you going to understand?
You’ll be back some day I’m sure; on your knees, on the floor.
It is the same with them all; I know what they want and then they call.
Time and time again; no getting what you need if you’re not my friend.
I told you once, I told you twice; treat me with respect that is the price.
I won’t stand for a hit and run; I have no problem finding other fun.
Loyalty means almost as much as respect; because I am not like any of the rest.
I’m done with putting your pleasure first; being taken for granted is the worst.
Do you even know what you let slip through your fingers; or all of the memories that still linger?
Foolish was I to try to trust; misguided by concern and blind lust.
Like a smack in the face comes the light of day; when you realize there must be a better way.
It wasn’t just because I was not having fun; there are so many other issues why we are done.
An obsessive longing ruined my brain; maybe it was for the best you didn’t feel the same.
The dangerous things I would have done; just to make sure you were the one.
I stopped in the middle of my tracks; now there is no reason to look back.
Moving forward on to the next; none of it matters when I already married the best.
I’ll never figure out what drew you to me; you don’t even like what you see.
Not your type and I will never be; I need a release that will set me free.
Once in a while I need to be first; my giving ways can be a curse.
I can’t deal with the frustration to intense; the last thing I need is never ending suspense.
Like a busy roundabout; spinning in circles with no way out.
An accident will be imminent; blinded by lust so then you squint.
In a split second time stands still; the disaster you avoided gives you a chill.
Nothing again will be the same to you; never finding out what is really true.
Wishing the pain could somehow be less; there is nothing more to address.
