Save Yourself, She Said

My favorite boy has got a crush
He loves a girl who drinks too much
And I'm the one who thinks too much, mm hmm
I see the things he doesn't see
The way her eyes are dark and mean
And he can't get away fast enough for me


Cause you could hold her down
And you could call for help
But if I were you, if I were you
If I were you I'd save myself


She holds her head and starts to scream
Says she had this fucked-up dream,
To me she's just a drama queen, mm hmm
And I'm the ordinary one
Who'll be there when her show is done
But I can't say what might become of her


Cause you could hold her down
And you could call for help
But if I were you, if I were you
If I were you I'd save myself


Pages and pages of stories in your notebook
You could save her and change her from sick to sorry -
here's a mirror...


You like the intrigue and the rush
You love the girl who drinks too much
And I'm the one who wants too much,
I know I should let it go


Cause I could hold you down
And I could call for help
But I am me, and you are you
And I can only save myself
