You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should've behaved better. -Anne Lamott, from Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life.


She always gets what she wants
But not what she needs
You keep supplying your love
But it won’t set you free

She says she don’t matter
But she knows that’s a lie
She’s just fishing for compliments
You know, she doesn’t have to try

Can’t you see, babe
This is all just a game for her
Hold her hand while she slowly slips away
You hold on, though she pleads to let go
This is just how she wants it
You’re just playing the role

She says she loves you one day
But then she changes her mind
She’s got you hooked on her kiss
She’s got you paying the fine

She tells you this is life
But baby this is death
She’s got you wrapped up so tight
You can’t take your last breath

Can’t you see, babe
This is all just a game for her
Hold her hand while she slowly slips away
You hold on, though she pleads to let go
This is just how she wants it
You’re just playing the role

We all see that you’re use to
All the suffering, she’s put you through
You won’t listen to the words that we say
You’re falling harder for her, with each passing day

But don’t you see babe
This is all just a game to her
You hold her tighter than you ever have before
She wants out now, but she’s buried too deep
This is not what she wanted
This is just what she needs
