Post-Romance 04:02
I guess it’s all my fault I didn’t make it clear that what I fear is Us falling apart You’re calling me out on my own bluff (it’s always why) I didn’t mean to break your heart (it’s always why) But excuse after excuse sounds kinda like a loop, what I’m trying to say…is that I’m better off this way, way Well I can’t take it, control or fake it I’ll give you my heart and you can’t break it I know what you said and what I did is what I mean And nothing you can say will change a thing, well Cuz I know you And you’re sad about it (sad about it) But I have feelings too And I’m sad about it (mad about it) It was obvious, you had no clue I was mad about it, mad at you You never knew…well I did too It must be all my fault I’ve been in this place before and I’ve had enough This time it’s not the same This time it’s getting late We’re not so different, you and I But when you put two together why even try It’s always why Am I always the only one, whoever tries Except the feeling’s not the same I’m feeling alive, misunderstood and deprived Going out every night, gunna live my new life Better off without you, now that I’ve taken a stand And no other woman will be holding this hand Cuz I know you And you’re sad about it (sad about it) But I have feelings too And I’m sad about it (mad about it) It was obvious, you had no clue I was mad about it, mad at you You never knew…well I did too Cuz I know you And you’re sad about it (sad about it) But I have feelings too And I’m sad about it (mad about it) It was obvious, you had no clue I was mad about it, mad at you You never knew…well I did too Well I did too Well I did too Well I did too

My Girl 03:59
My girl she always gets the best of me But she won’t And if she wants to, well she could take the rest of me But she don’t She had it all but she wanted more (so sad) Guess I was more than she bargained for (well too bad) Well I’m sorry I can’t sympathize And I won’t apologize What’s past is done, more ammo in my gun So don’t even try My girl she always gets the best of me But she won’t And if she wants to, well she could take the rest of me But she don’t She flaunts it Cuz she’s got it Well she don’t got me, so she don’t got it all I’m getting static and having trouble getting through So goodbye, I’m hanging up on you Cuz my minutes are almost through She said she don’t love me anymore (oh well) And she said she’s got her reasons for (well do tell) But when I look into those eyes Darling it’s no surprise That I gave in, I always let you win But no, not this time My girl she always gets the best of me But she won’t And if she wants to, well she could take the rest of me But she don’t Well she’s got it So she flaunts it When she looked at me, she said she wants it now Well I’m sorry but I’ve got better things to do Than to spend all of my time on you My girl she always got the best of me My girl she never took the rest of me My girl she always got the best of me My girl she never took the rest of me If she wants it Then she’s got it Well she don’t got me, so she don’t got it all You’re sorry, hell I’m sorry too Sorry that I ever talked to you My girl she always gets the best of me My girl she always gets the best of me If she wants it…(she’s got it) Then she’s got it…(so she flaunts it) Well she don’t got me, so she don’t got it all You’re jealous, selfish, condescending too And that’s why I’ll never be with you

All the kids are singing “Love Me Do” Or something catchy, to the same effect And I was thinking me and you Could meet up later, with all due respect To what’s-his-name And don’t tell me he’s different from the rest Cuz that’s insane…standing next to me He’ll always be, just second best So tell me what is it you’d miss Oh I know it’s not his kiss Told you darling I’ve had lots of practice Could use some more, so why don’t we try it But I know everybody’s, Got a little voice inside their head A friend who hides the truth And tells you lies you’d rather hear instead But I know you want me The way you play with your hair It only makes me aware that His love is empty Oh baby it’s barely there So why don’t you tempt me Maybe tonight Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo Maybe tonight Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo Now here we are again Sitting in my car alone, underneath the night It seems that I can’t win So we’re heading into triple overtime Now I’m on a break Only one man to beat, but he knows I like to shoot up high So I hesitate Lord knows I don’t wanna be denied So tell me what if I’m to miss Oh would you run back to him Probably should’ve done some target practice It’s too late now, might as well try it But I know everybody’s Got a little voice inside their head A friend who hides the truth And tells you things you’d rather hear instead Like I know you want me The way you play with your hair It only keeps me aware that His love is empty Oh baby it’s barely there So why don’t you tempt me I’m standing on your porch Tossing rocks at your window Begging you to come outside He’s probably home by now Either getting off or getting high I only want you to myself But you’re too weak to say goodbye Baby you know you can’t fight it Just take my hand and close your eyes So tell me what is it you’ll miss I know it’s not his kiss I told you darling I’ve had lots of practice Could use some more, so why don’t we try it And doesn't everybody Got a little voice inside their head A friend who hides the truth And tells you lies you’d rather hear instead But I know you want me The way you play with your hair It only leaves me aware that His love is empty Oh baby it’s barely there So why don’t you tempt me Maybe tonight Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo Maybe tonight Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo Maybe tonight Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo Maybe tonight Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo So meet me tonight
