Lyrics

VERSE 1
Your come-on lines don't disguise the warpath
You're out to make her pay for playing you for a fool
But I don't want to be the one you run to
'cause rebounds never work out as a rule
When the healing comes I'm the one
With the bitter, breaks away
But I care too much about your trust
To want you this way
'cause you've got

CHORUS
Anger in your eyes, vengeance on your mind
You're not over her at all
You're nowhere near ready to fall
You just feel so bad you feel you have no choice
I'd love to but that's venom in your voice

VERSE 2
Put down that drink in your hand now
I can see you're way past your fill
And I refuse to watch you fuel your anger
When you've got a lot of life left to rebuild
There's nothing here in that beer
That's gonna help you mend
There's nothing I can do to reach you
'til you're ready again
'cause you've got

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Call a cab, you go home
Spend some time sitting all alone
You have my number, I hope you call
But tonight you don't need me at all

REPEAT CHORUS
