So what makes him so different than the rest?
Your love won't last
When you want something that you can't have

You wake up for work and he rolls over
Falls back asleep until he's sober
You're always a maker
He's always a taker
Mid-afternoon, your lunch break's over
Back to the grind, but he's on the sofa
At home watching cable
Getting high with the neighbors
When in the world will you open your eyes up
And see it's already over?
When in the world can you open your mind
And believe he's fucking you over?

So what makes him so different than the rest?
Your love won't last
When you want something that you can't have?

You're always alone
The fire's grown colder
You deal with his shit and it's getting older
You think that he's faithful
But he's getting playful
You think you're in love
You say it's right
But you cry to yourself while it all comes undone
There's no solid ground when you're swimming in doubts
You ought to know better by now
When in the world will you open your eyes up
And see it's already over?
When in the world can you open your mind
And believe he's fucking you over?

So what makes him so different than the rest?
Your love won't last
When you want something that you can't have?

When in the world will you open your eyes up
And see it's already over?
When in the world will you open your mind
And believe he's fucking around?

So what makes him so different than the rest?
Your love won't last
When you want something that you can't have?
