"'I'm sorry'

She mouths,

Because everyone knows I'm just

Her

Dirty little secret,

The one she can't cover up

Like that bruise he gave her before the prom.

And I'm really getting

Sick

Of trying to save her

Every time that he does wrong

Middle of an October night and

She falls

At the bottom of my staircase

Tear-streaked face propped up against the front door

Swearing

That it's me that she wants.

And I'm really getting

Sick

Of trying to save her

Every time that he does wrong

It never fails

(She's such a catalyst for pain)

And it kills me to know she's

Touching him

After making love to me,

Because I'll take her back.

'I'll always take her back.'

And I'm really getting

Sick

Of trying to save her

Every time that I do wrong "
