And It’s Such A Drag

Who loves you
More than me
And who gave you 
All that he had
All that he had

And who can make you laugh
And smile like that
And who could break your heart
At the drop of a hat

Who paid the rent before you were famous
Who warned you that it steals
Now you talk about the past like it was just some waiting room
And you talk about me like I was just another one of your deals

And who wanted you 
Before all this
And who held the girl
When no one gave a shit

Who can tell the truth now darlin'
And who can tell a lie
Who helped you to see that it was always worth the living
Even when all you wanted to do was just lay down and die

Who loved you 
More than me
And who couldn't care less
Now I see
Now that I see

Who can tell the truth now darlin'
And who can tell a lie
Who said they could never understand how people became monsters
And if that ever happened to you you'd rather lay down and die

Ah my valentine
You're poisoned now
Seems the heart I knew
Is gone, a plow
And you can walk away
Like it's such a drag
That I'd have something to say
After all that we knew and had
Don't it even make you sad
