thinking what should i do now i don't have you
facing my demotion, i'm just a fish in your ocean
has been, that's what i am with my backstage wristband
i'm freaking, seconds of you, that's not what i'm used to

feed, feed them all to me
i'm careful with my stuff
what's your policy?
first one's free

i save 'em up, i put 'em in my pocket
i save 'em up, i put 'em in a jar
i save 'em up, i'm going to need 'em for later
i save 'em up, and then they'll go real far

hand me downs, i'll take downs
i'll take the leftovers
cold ones and the old ones, better than no ones

feed, feed them all to me
i'm careful with my stuff
what's your policy?
first one's free

i save 'em up, i put 'em in my pocket
i save 'em up, i put 'em in a jar
i save 'em up, i need 'em for later
i save 'em up, and then they'll go real far

I time it out, i gotta be real careful
I time it out, i get 'em right on time
I time it out, get 'em when I need him
time is up, what's left is over
it's over

i can never have enough
i can never have enough
i sure am greedy, hand 'em over to me

i save 'em up, i put 'em in my pocket
i save 'em up, i put 'em in a jar
i save 'em up, gonna need 'em for later
i save 'em up, then they'll go real far

i time it out, i'll be real careful
i time it out, i get 'em right on time
i time it out, i get 'em when i need him
time is up, what's left is over

    General Commentthe end up of a break-up or fling...now she's just any other girl to the guy. She's not used to being treated this way by him. All the moments they shared good or not, she keeps at heart. Whatever attention she can get she'll take no matter what & its not "free", b/c it costs her feelings.

    lol, i think? thats my interpretation...
