The truth about love it's great when you're in it

Rolls out of bed picks her clothes off the floor
Yesterday headache from the night before
To late for makeup she turns out the lights
And kisses herself goodbye
Here car smells of cologne
And the dreams that she sold
For a chance at a life
In the arms of a guy
Who was never gonna be there

The truth about love it's great when you're in it
She's so punk rock but her heart ain't in it
Telling her friends by the weekend
She'll be over him

It's her routine that is keeping her sane
Another lost soul with somebody to blame
She's staying busy but works been a drag
And long days seem even longer
Soon she'll have to go home
Where she feels so alone
To the bed that they shared
Where he said that he cared
And was never gonna leave her

The truth about love it's great when you're in it
She's so punk rock but her heart ain't in it
Telling her friends by the weekend
She'll be over him

She'd beg and borrow
Steal and save
Pray for the day that never came
It's all she ever wanted
When that's not what she needs
Oh, no, no

Now she's all alone
She can never go home
Yeah she'd lie and deal
Cheat and steal
For a chance at a life
In the arms of a guy

The truth about love X4

    General CommentI remember reading somewhere that is a reply to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' "You got luck" only from the girl's point of view.
