"The Irony"

--Chorus:
If you can do it
I can do it, too
I know my problems
Don’t even matter to you
You can’t stand
That you’re the one to blame
Well get over it, ‘cuz
Two can play your game.

--
Was it really just a short month ago
I stared at your wrists, my heart filled with woe?
Looking at you I started to cry
Your excuses only served to horrify
But now I know why
I understand why.

--Chorus:
If you can do it
I can do it, too
I know my problems
Don’t even matter to you
You can’t stand
That you’re the one to blame
Well get over it, ‘cuz
Two can play your game.

--
My back’s to the wall as you’re screaming in my face
And you’re gripping the skin I tried so hard to deface
The irony is almost too much to stand
Of all people, I thought that you would understand
Let go of my hand
Why can’t you understand?

--Chorus:
If you can do it
I can do it, too
I know my problems
Don’t even matter to you
You can’t stand
That you’re the one to blame
Well get over it, ‘cuz
Two can play your game.


The author's comments:
This happened a long time ago. It is inspired by when I found out my boyfriend (my ex) was cutting, and I didn't understand why he would do that to himself. The irony is, a short time later I began doing the same thing. And he didn't understand.

i guess it could be, but in modern culture vanity is usually associated with one's looks

Oh. I thought vanity was also like egotitical or overly proud of one's own stuff...

I wasn't sure if you would like this one cuz of what I wrote it about. But yeah, it's one of my favourites too (That's not vain is it? I can have my own favourites, right?)

Yeah, you named this one!! :)
