I Am a Stupid, Little Girl
I am a stupid little girl
Yes, that’s what I said.
Please don’t tell me not to hurl
This isn’t in my head.
It makes me sick beyond compare.
The things you say to me
The sweetest words, how you dare
manipulate, with flattery.
‘Oh, you’re so beautiful, words cannot describe’
‘You’re cute and smart and all I need’; a master of the bribe.
Like a fool, your sell, I buy
I long for love, another try.
You suck me in, as they all do
Comfort me, when it’s all new.
Once reassured and coast is clear
All alone, you leave me here.
Running around with everyone else
While I just sit here, by myself.
Apparently I haven’t learned
Time and again, I get burned.
Silly girl, who knows the truth
The signs are there, no better proof.
So why do I just sit here and let you break me down?
I’m tired of my failed attempts, trying not to drown.
You’re all the same; you come along and build me up so high.
Faking it must be so hard and soon the love does die.
Was it love, at any point, was it ever real?
It’s hard to tell with a broken heart that never gets to heal.
I don’t go ‘round looking, in search of something new.
You throw yourself at me and boy, do you pursue!
‘I’ll give you what you’ve never had; I’ll make your dreams come true’
All that does is make me mad, I’ve heard this from a few.
I’m gullible and give away all my heart to you.
You take it and you don’t stand by, those things you said you’d do.
‘I won’t break your heart, precious one’
‘Your heart’s as good as mine’
“Baby girl, I’ve got your back and that’s the bottom line’.
Never has that promise, yet, by you, or anyone
Come even close to being met, same damage always done.
I'm just a stupid, little girl for giving it a try.
I give my heart away again, and watch it slowly die.
