It was so promising.
We felt it all, everything.
And, God, man,
how I loved your mouth.
Nothing in between.
All of it, every extreme.
On fire ‘til we burned out.
And you were so tempting,
Then you were so empty.
And I’m surprised how rarely you cross my mind,
and I bet you’d say the same.
Just add me to your list of names.
And I believe you would never give me what I need,
and I know you’ll never change.
That’s why I’m on your list of names.
I know I’m on your list of names.
And your so-called honesty,
It’s like you’re exempt from humanity.
And you say you know yourself:
HA! I’ve heard it all.
Caught up in your back stories
and your almost former glories.
Well, we’ve all got those so
get off the cross.
And, I don’t know why you tempted me,
or why everything went spinning.
Now I’m on your back and I know
how you like that cuz you called me baby.
You called me baby.
Now, you’re on your back.
You’re so good at that,
and you called me,
called me baby.
You slipped and called,
you slipped and called me baby.
