Bad Girlfriend

She makes me wanna scream
Holler and curse
I’m just a footnote in her life
But, I wanna be the book, chapter and verse
I want a staring role
I want a pivotal scene
I’ve got more to offer than an extra Yeah, I wanna be her silver screen

But, she’s got limitations
Piled on to her reservations
She’s been known to break, but she refuses to bend
She just don’t want this man

She makes me wanna run
Right into her arms
Lose myself in her bad condition
And keep me safe from harm
She keeps herself at bay
Walks on the other side of the street
Feels like she’s a thousand miles away
When she’s just up the road a piece

I’m having trouble with her translation
I can’t make out her revelations
And I’m all out of flowers to send
And she just don’t want me, man

My history it just repeats
It follows me up and down these streets
It’s an all too familiar crime scene
The graffiti reads like poetry
It’s all knowing, self-predicting, straight to the point
But, the truth is missing

She’s moving away from me
Slipping her hand from my hand
Baby, my palms are all dry
And I know who I am
I’m a romantic junkie
A relationship flunky
In love, I’ve been a millionaire
But with Monopoly money

I know I’ve got high expectations
So cancel the band, the hall, take down the decorations
I learned another lesson, so it was time well spent
One day, maybe, I can see my way through to being her friend
