You want to stay, I wanted you out
Get out
You're everything that I laugh about
You're your own antitheseis now
I hope that you can make yourself proud
You're not usless when you're used
When your exhausted heart and thighs are being bruised

Wipe your tears away
Tell me what would daddy say
About that slattern little alley cat he raised
Wipe those tears away (Wipe those tears away)
Tell me what would daddy say
About that slattern little alley cat he raised

You know someday, you'll figure it out
This out
You're the type I'm writing about
You want to change but it's too late now
Cause you're engaged to decisions you've made
You're not usless when you're used
When your exhausted heart and thighs are being bruised

Wipe your tears away
Tell me what would daddy say
About that slattern little alley cat he raised
Wipe those tears away (Wipe those tears away)
Tell me what would daddy say
About that slattern little alley cat he raised

Oh, now you can't quite blame yourself but you're guilty.
You're guilty.
You can't quite blame yourself but you're guilty.
You're not usless when you're used
When your exhausted heart and thighs are being bruised

Wipe the tears away (Wipe the tears away)
Tell me what would daddy say
About that slattern little alley cat he raised

    General CommentThese guys have a pretty good vocabulary when they need to use it. ("slattern" and "antithesis") That was the first time I have ever heard either of those words used in a song.

    Anyways, It's probably about an ex-girlfriend who ended up being a slut and cheated on him or something.

    General CommentMy best friend is the singer's best friend, and yeah, she said the exact same thing to me in reference to this song recently. She was pretty proud of his vocab.
