I really didn't mean to hurt you
It's just we're such a mess
I've cleaned up too many child boys
In my worn out checkered past

I can't be bothered with the aftertaste
I won't go wasting all my time
I'm too busy looking out for yours
Nobody's loooking out for mine

So I'll be the one who let you down
I'll be the one who never cared
I'll be the woman from your past
In the photograph that you ripped in half

I'll be the one you could never count on
Cause a warm gun is easier sung than done

You're gonna be popular with other girls
Once you tell 'em about me
They're gonna line up at your broken door
With offerings of sympathy

And that platonic embrace you're in
They'll only wind up on the floor
Cause you're needy and dependant and demanding
It's gonna cost her so much more

Then she'll be the one who let you down
She'll be the one who never cared
She'll be the woman from your past
In the photograph that you ripped in half

She'll be the one you could never count on
Cause a warm gun is easier sung than done

Now as history repeats itself
Someone is bound to get me back
And I suppose only then will I know
What it meant to leave you like that

That is you're all upstanding now
You're stable and over me
Ain't it funny how the tables turn
But what a time to finally see

I was the one who set you free
I was the one who pushed you forward
And I'm the woman from your past
In a photograph that you've since restored

I'll be the reason you're good to someone
But thanking me is easier said than done
