Her mother said, "Don't wait on callers"
She's the only one calling
You're seven penny darling!
You'll never break even
Everyday she dresses a million dollars
To sit at home and wallow in her misery now
Her timely demise a nail in your coffin
You start to see clearly
Maybe start to steer clear
She starts to sense it
No way to be direct - shit
Get ready to dance cos you gotta do it nicely

I don't know what you want from me
I don't know what you need from me!

Oh oh oh ooh I need your sympathetic lies
Oh oh oh ooh give me sympathetic

A sight for sore eyes
You loving tell her
Through grit teeth
Beauty's only skin deep
Left with a heavy heart
Any way you slice it
You're burning up inside
But you smile and say you like it

I don't know what you want from me!
I don't know what you need from me!

Oh oh oh ooh I need your sympathetic lies
Oh oh oh ooh give me sympathetic

So when you leave me
Tell me that you love me
Tell me that it ain't me
That you've got got issues
And I'll forgive you
Maybe in a year or two
Maybe when you prove to be a little more stable!

No way to play it straight
She just wont have it
She's a prima donna and a half
She's got you on a tight lip
So now you're stuck between
Your lack of understanding/ her thinking that you're fragile
Afraid of commitment

A difficult species she kicks and screams till she can't breathe
Suppresses you till you can't breathe
Then calls it even
You've swallowed your pride for long enough now
She's really trying you're patience
You're ready to get violent

Oh oh oh ooh I'm fed up of these sympathetic lies
Oh oh oh ooh I'm fed up of being sympathetic

Wake up and face it
You're a bitch and you like it
Step up and admit it
I'm sick of your bullshit
No way of playing your cards right
No way of keeping them chest tight
I wont get back in line
I've been there time after time
Oh god here's a state of embargo
You want to show me stable?
Fuck it I'll show you stable
I'm justifying the means
I'm justifying the means
I'm justifying the means
I'll show you stable

No, I can't take anymore
Gave you all that I had
All my tears all I own
No way to break
Chip or crack your heart of stone
For the last time
It's the end of us now
