"Whipping Boy" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
Now it's simple to me
Sometimes you have to let go
When there's next to nothing
She says yes everytime he says no

There's more pain then love
It comes o shove almost
Everytime you speak
Somehow you fight

Somehow you're crazy
Somehow it's taking all the life left in... You
You're losing ground
Carrying that torch

You ain't asking for much
Still somehow
As she has... Had time to heal
And she doesn't need you any longer

And you... Had time to drink
And you call her to tell her
You've gotten much stronger
At three in the morning

She says "Stop calling cause...
Everyone's asleep
Some of us work
You're driving me crazy

I've learned to get on with my life"
Now every night's Friday night
Picking fights with your friends
Somehow trying to make amends

So you search for comfort in a friend
It ain't the same she won't understand
You both learned to think alike
So what was so wrong

Where's she tonight
Out there drinking
While you're left in thinking
It's taking all the life left in... You

You're losing ground
Carrying that torch
You ain't asking for much
Still somehow

You'll wait for her
You say she'll return
But you still carry that torch
That girl...

Whipping Boy

    General CommentThis is such a great song... Its a Lagwagon cover but I think Armchair Martian did it even better... This song is just amazing

    Its about a guy who cant forget his ex-girlfriend. Its destroying him, but he still hopes she will return.
