Does it make you happy to ignore me on streets? 

I guess by now you think I’m weak 

I wish you could have said something before now 

I wouldn’t share a bag of chips with you 

In my opinion you don’t have a clue 

I’m being cruel I’m being cruel  

 

I don’t want to be part of your scene 

I’ll stick with him and keep my nose clean 

You’re the one pretending to be licking stamps 

All alone in a room following lines on maps 

It’s clear you don’t want me here 

How about I send you a book on nutrition 

You can stop spoon-feeding me non-fiction 

Just for a while, I will fake a smile 

Why did you say she was a friend of mine? 

I thought it was me you couldn’t stand 

I’m confused 

I will win you will lose 

You’ve taken to phoning my house when you’re drunk 

Confessing all your love 

I wish you could have said so before now 

 

I don’t want to be part of your scene 

I’ll stick with him and keep my nose clean
