lyrics

I’ve seen you watching her every time she crosses the floor,
So won’t you just go and talk to the one you really adore.
I’m getting pretty used to being the one that you always ignore When somebody wants you—I’ve seen it before.

You’re every kind of caller—there ain’t nothing that you won’t claim— You’re ambition and promise, you’re addiction to fame.
And everyone has a dollar sign after their name—
And when somebody wants you, you treat ‘em just the same.
So go on and pick up—
You don’t care what poison you choose
And what person you lose—it should have been me, yeah— Shouldn’t it be?

Crushing quiet blows in through your window
To someone who wants you that you’ll never know.
But I’ll pick up around you and clear everything out, Leave you where I found you—I figured you out.
Leave you where I found you—I figured you out.
