Only For Tonight

the marks on his chest and the bite on his neck,
tell you he wasn't with his buddies last night.
while you were gone, he called her up.
and just like before, they ended up in bed.
putting their hands where they didn't belong,
and showing each other what they'd been missing.

-

a few drinks later,
and the boy she used to know was coming out.
he held her so tightly,
as if he was scared to let go.
he whispered "I love you" in her ear,
and for a second she almost believed him.
than she remembered;
its only for tonight.
his girlfriend will be calling in the morning,
and he'll pretend she wasn't there.
the rumors will fly.
"I saw his car at her place."
"I saw them driving around town."
"I think he invited her to that party tonight."
but just like he always does,
he'll convince her that nothings going on,
and she's positive he wouldn't hurt her.

-

she's not sure why she stays around.
she could get any boy she wanted,
yet she still comes back to him.
I guess she's really not over him.
secretly she's dying inside.
she spends more time getting ready if she knows he'll be there.
she'll watch him stare from across the room,
and act like she doesn't care.
she'll dance a little sluttier.
she'll talk a little louder,
about how "great" she's doing.
and the fact she's moving on and doing so well without him,
she knows its driving him insane.

-

and just like she figured,
he'll text her before the nights over,
with a winky face to strike up conversation.

-

and the story starts back at the beginning...

-

the scratches on his back and the condoms in his car,
tell you he wasn't with his buddies last night.
while you were gone, he called her up.
