I'll wait up for you
We're just a pair of fools
And when you return
You're gonna tear me down
And I'm gonna stay out for long hours

And you're not concerned for free
And buying compassion was never cheap
No, it was so close
We're now the shards of a broken shell
And only you choose how it goes
And I'm gonna tell it like it is

You treat me like a ragdoll
I know you like to go it alone
Sometimes it's better off waitin'
Sometimes you're better off waitin'
'Til I stop feelin', and you start cheatin' me

I may be resigned to you
As long as you know that's true
We just have to take turns
'Cause I like to tear you down
And we're gonna stay out for long hours
And I'm gonna spell it out for you

You treat me like a ragdoll
I know you like to go it alone
Sometimes it's better off waitin'
You treat me like a ragdoll
I know you like to go it alone
Sometimes it's better off waitin'
Sometimes it's better off waitin'
'Til I stop feelin', and you start cheatin' me

You treat me like a ragdoll
I know you like to go it alone
Sometimes it's better off waitin'
Sometimes you're better off waitin'
You treat me like a ragdoll
I know you like to go it alone
Sometimes it's better off waitin'
Sometimes you're better off waitin'
'Til I stop feelin', and you start cheatin' me
I stop feelin', and you start cheatin' me
I stop feelin', and you start cheatin' me
