I don’t want your sympathy hugs or cries or girly eyes, I want to be heard.
I want you to listen to me, I never asked to be understood.
Give me respect and I should not shed a tear or near the thought.
Give to me your time, for happiness can not be bought.

Singled out because you found someone else, and my life was never the same.
Sitting alone in the dark at home, and I’m the one to blame.
The sad guitar and 12 long bars of blues that ring so true.
I smoked this joint because there was never a point of sacrificing anything for you.
