Originally written 2000-11-10.


Well ain’t you always egging me on?
How you come around lately a lot,
With your fake plastic smile
And penchant for denial
After being gone away for so long

And don’t you always look like the innocent one?
The innocent one
Did you paint on that demeanor With your blush and eyeliner?
It shows
Oh trust me, it shows
In how easily it comes and goes for you

When the telephone sat quiet
Far too long
How I stared at the buttons
And thought maybe I was the one
Who did something wrong?

And finally saying goodbye
Finding this emotional high
Was as hard as it was easy
To separate the truth from all of your lies

Oh how you lied – lied so well
And I couldn’t guess any better than you could tell
The truth if you tried

If you tried hard enough, you still couldn’t turn back time
I’m not interested in knowing what could have been
If you’d have only changed your mind
