I don't trust you
And why should I
You done some pretty cold things
By and by
If I believe in you
I'm gonna get hurt
If I buy into your thing
Well I'm gonna lose my shirt

I need protection
Right from the start
Gotta harden my heart

You get a look
When you're about to pounce
You suck me dry
Every single ounce
I try to lick my wounds
You pour in the salt
Shoulda known better
It's all my damn fault

You gotta pattern
It's not so hard to spot
You don't do it once or twice
You repeat it a lot

I try to love you
I guess I'm some sort of fool
You take me in
And treat me like a tool
Don't wanna be your lackey
Gotta be tough
Gotta hold up my hand
And say, "Enough, enough!"
