Just Another Number

Add another one to your list
One more you lost
Making the list longer
Add another number
Another girl
Worth nothing
You made us feel worthless
With your little checkmarks and circles
How many times you were together?
Mark that down
Checkmark for a kiss
Circle for more
We were a fun little game to you
Believing every little lie
And one by one
Slowly
You made us fall in love with you
Or who you made us think you were
Then you disappeared
Breaking hearts
Is you're game
Sex is the prize
Treat us like sh*t
I built up a wall just for you
Slowly hiding myself
So I wouldn't get hurt again

But now someone else is climbing this wall
Choosing to care
For me
Not for my body
I'm a person to him
Each day I love him
More and more

So erase me off your little list
I quit this game a long time ago
I'm not a prize to be won
Not a toy in a machine
To be thrown away the next day
I'm not a number
Or a checkmark or circle
To these broken girls
You will always be that kid
Who played this game
You thought you won
But the truth is, you've already lost
