All I Want From You, You Won't Give

-

I hate your distance

__that you keep from me

Why we can't be anything

__over a stupid technicality

All I was askin' for was friendship

__with benefits

But it's too late

You moved on

So fuck you!

And stay gone!

I'll always remember

__the mistake I made with you

And it will eat me up

__if I let it

So I must choose to let you go

And maybe our past won't haunt me

One of these days you'll be replaced again

If I could ever find it in me

__to love again

God knows how long it will be

Before I can find anybody for me

Before I can find a relationship

__I can believe in

And maybe there'll never be a next

Maybe there's no hope

But a bitch like you

__just has to go
