Affection



She calls for my affection
And it comes my attention
That she doesn't even mention
What went wrong.
She never says she's sorry
Which always makes me worry
And I can't get through this flurry
Of the things I've never said.

She's my weakness
And she knows this.
She takes advantage
Almost every single time.
She comes, she goes
I let her walk back and forth
Without asking her to stop
And just think twice.
Maybe I should take control of my life.
But I never listen to my own advice.

She's the blade stuck in my side,
But she's the apple of my eye.
If I were any other guy,
I'd be just fine with how things are.
But I can't be who she thinks I am
Over and over again.
I'm the best she'll ever have,
But she wouldn't know.

Sometimes I think I'm losing my mind.
When she shows up in the middle of the night.
I want to close the door and say goodbye.
But I can't take the tears that pour from her eyes.

There are so many fish in the sea.
That's what my friends keep telling me.
But they don't seem to understand
We're history.

(shut the door when you go
Before the sun has even rose.
I know that you're looking
For something more.
I'll always wish you the best,
Even if you don't deserve it.
That's just the way I am,
If only you cared to understand.)
