You Just Lost

You've got eyes
that could drive a girl wild,
and a way too good
to be true perfect smile.
So maybe I fell for
what I thought I saw,
but you're done
breaking hearts,
'Cause I'ma tell the world
how you really are.

Every sweet little thing
that you said, that you did.
Every song that we sang,
every time that we kissed,
Well Baby,
it's all going up in flames.

'Cause you're just a liar
with really good looks,
and the charm of an ogre
from fairy tale books.
And I'd say your name,
but it's sound like I'm cursin'
'Cause I've never met
a less decent person.

You're stubborn, self-righteous,
and you think you're so cool.
I thought you were flawless,
but you're just a tool.

And now that I'm gone,
I hope that you see,
You won't find a girl
as good as me.

'Cause you're just a liar
with really good looks,
and the charm of an ogre
from fairy tale books.
And I'd say your name,
but it's sound like I'm cursin'
'Cause I've never met
a less decent person.

You're stubborn, self-righteous,
and you think you're so cool.
I thought you were flawless,
but you're just a tool.

And now that I'm gone,
I hope you realize,
You just lost
the greatest catch
of your life.

So congrats, babe.
Nicely done.

Ugh...I know what it's like to be screwed by your best friend and have to get over it...but it's great that you're not completely out to kill the kid.
