You thought you could use me and go away
You never gave me a clue
I wanted to lose you and throw away
The things you say but don't do

You lied to me about the way you feel and
I know what I saw and I know what's real
It's sad you're hurting yourself with me but
You don't even know who you are

You can run
But you can't hide
You were not a nice guy
With words like sugar you're not so sweet

Don't bother me
Just say you're sorry
Stop calling me
Don't cyber me
Just say you're sorry
Stop blaming me
Quit calling me
Just say you're sorry

I don't need your charity
Just save yourself

Can't change history and everything you
[something]
Why should I be really lying when
You can't even say what you think?

Afraid of girls and afraid of girls' chests
Everything you said had to be a [something]
Trapped by a girl who can travel the world
But she can't [something] these men

You can run
But you can't hide
You were not a nice guy
With words like sugar you're not so sweet

Don't bother me
Just say you're sorry
Stop calling me
Don't cyber me
Just say you're sorry
Stop blaming me
Quit calling me
Just say you're sorry

I don't need your charity
Just save yourself

You laugh at me when I cried to you and
You couldn't spare me a cent
Deserving of your agony when
I couldn't even pay the rent

I wasn't all up and participating
Taking it over now it's too late
Tell me you still want to be friends
But I don't even know who you are

You can run
But you can't hide
You were not a nice guy
With words like sugar you're not so sweet

Don't bother me
Just say you're sorry
Stop calling me
Don't cyber me
Just say you're sorry
Stop blaming me
Quit calling me
Just say you're sorry

I don't need your charity
Just save yourself

    General CommentYah, so I'm an idiot (how ironic with the song title!) and i jsut figured out it's saying 'I don't want your charity', not my little [something].

    General CommentOh yes, the meaning and such.

    To me, a guy used her and made her fell like shit, and then desperately wants her to still be his.

    [I can really relate. I hate you, Jon...]

    Anywho, I'm confused by the words "Afraid of girls and afraid of girls' chests". I mean, perhaps I misheard, but I'm fairly sure that's right. I find it to be humorous, actually.
