Taking You Back


Once, twice, three times I took you back
Common sense, it seemed, was what I lacked
Saying your sorry, time after time
My stupidity, should be called a crime
Each Of these incidents, was my fault
Even when you, were the one getting caught
Looking back, each of your mistakes
Equaled another, individual heartbreak
Threw out your clothes and your shoes
Figured I'd paid, more than my dues
But, if happiness, can't seem to be had
How much do I need, to be constantly sad
You don't know, what it is you need
But on my sympathy, you'll no longer feed
