Girl, you know what you’ve got
And what you’ve got is what I want,
But what I want is what you won’t give away,
And though we both know that you
Will never give me some of yours,
I will give you all of mine anyway.
The only thing in life
I ever wanted from you
Was to show a little love now and then,
But you were always there
Just to take what you wanted
Then you turned around and ran away again.
Perhaps someday I will learn
To run away from your lies,
And then I’ll leave you standing out in the cold,
But until that day arrives
I know I’ll fall for all your lies
‘Cause I’m still longing for somebody to hold.
