Different Person

I know what your friends say,
When I'm not around.
You never back me up,
Just let me fall to the ground.
That's not how it's supposed to work,
I'm your boyfriend.
But if that's how it's gonna be,
Maybe we should just end?
You're a whole different person,
When I'm absent at the time.
You talk behind my back,
It's feeling like a crime.
I defend you when people mouth off,
Yet you can't provide the same for me?
I can't stick around if this how you're gonna act,
Until you change your ways, a couple we can't be.
You don't like the way I dress,
Well, I don't like your makeup.
It might be rude for me to say,
But what you're doing, I've had enough.
You used to be my everything,
It's fading away fast.
No point in trying to fix it,
I see it now, this won't last.
You're a whole different person,
When I'm absent at the time.
You talk behind my back,
It's feeling like a crime.
I defend you when people mouth off,
Yet you can't provide the same for me?
I can't stick around if this how you're gonna act,
Until you change your ways, a couple we can't be.
