In Your Chair


So what? you wrecked me

Let's get over it!

The time is now

To forget how I felt

When you took my heart

__and smashed it!

Like my new favorite burger

It's plain to see

__I was nothing more

____than your client

I can forget all about you

That's just what I'm gonna do

You obviously see me as a "piece of shit"

Just like everybody else

Now gimme my heart back

__and go to Hell!

Oh, wait

I never gave you my heart

Just my money

That I know I can't get back

Well, this was a laugh and a half!

Why should I love you?

I'd rather smoke crack!

But I know that I won't

I'll sit in your chair again

Many months from now

And memories of how I felt

Will hit me

__like "POW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Hopefully, by then

__I will have fallen out

'Cause this was never real

I don't know what I was thinking

You'll never complete me

I couldn't bargain for your soothing hands

Now I complain that I still have to come back
