oh the word is out
they're washing their hands of you
i know you destroy everything you do
so it's really no surprise

you can see the esteem dwindling in their eyes
you reap what you sow
oh baby i should know:
i'm gonna use this to get in with you

'cause you're a
counterfeit lover, digging in the dirt
for the reality behind which lover shot the other first
oh no, oh no

come to me my darling
neither one of us has an invite to the party
we may have once
but since then, our ambitions have become a thorny pride
neither one of us dishonest enough to hide
what we could claim with a teary eye
as our natural birthright

'cause you're my counterfeit lover
tell me dear where it hurts
do you think think that i don't know that someone else had loved you first?
i don't care, i don't care!
oh the word is out!
they're washing their hands of you!
i know you destroy!
i know you destroy!
i know you destroy!
i don't care
i know you destroy!
i know you destroy!
i know you destroy!
