Without hope, drowning in misery,
I couldn't help but notice you and take some sympathy
So I tried to give you a helping hand,
but somehow you wound up taking more than I had ever planned
and now it seems

For all the messes that I've made,
I was never afraid of sharing
But you took all that you could take
I guess I made the mistake of caring

I know that I shouldn't be so surprised,
I should have seen the malice in those puppy dog eyes
Maybe I just chose to ignore my fears,
but somehow I fell victim to your crocodile tears
and now i know

Why your weakness seems so odd,
'cause it's just a facade you're wearing
Of all the rules that I could break,
my biggest mistake was caring for you

And I know you too well my friend,
to let you knock me off my horse again
Perhaps you don't know what you've done,
still you know a sucker when you see one
And I must be sucker number one

For all the messes that I've made,
I was never afraid of sharing
But you took all that you could take
I guess I made the mistake of caring for you

For you, oh, I've been a bigger fool than I believed
Am i wearing a target on my back,
or a sign that says easily deceived?
I'm learning how to recognize the truth,
I'm finding I'm better off without you
