how could I ever want this?

You call me obnoxious?

God you're so pretentious

Too hard to even reminisce

How could I ever want this?

Ripping trees out at their roots

Choking on unripened fruit

Saying things before they're true

Time can't even mend these wounds

I tried to stay, called me a quitter

Oh, but hey, you're never bitter

Liked you better during sex

But even then you weren't the best

Sure, I quit the relationship

But you never let me finish

Must be nice not to give a shit

I need another hit, I fucking quit

I sure do love all these maybes

What else is wrong with me baby?

Oh now you tell me that I'm vain?

Oh my love, you're such a pain

Split those hairs and keep on crying

God I'm glad that we quit trying
