It seems you wanna give me,
Oh a life time of security
Down on your dying knees
I watch you babe I watch you please

But your words come much too late,
My love for you has turned to hate

Cuz you've taken too much time,
To show me that your mine,

When I drop you boy
You'll need another toy
One that wont stand up for herself
When I knock you down
You'll need another town
Where somebodys gonna talk to you,
You just let me wait now its too late
For your delayed delayed devotion

You try to convince me
Oh about the possabilities
But I know that all your poetry
Just comes from insecurity

Cuz your actions speak nothing no more
When Its what Ive been waiting for

Cuz you've taken too much time,
To show me that your mine,

When I drop you boy
You'll need another toy
One that wont stand up for herself
When I knock you down
You'll need another town
Where somebodys gonna talk to you,
You just let me wait now its too late
For your delayed delayed devotion

You played me for a fool, for too long
Blinded by your lies I never saw your all
Im no longer under your spell
Here it in a song You can go to hell

When I drop you boy
You'll need another toy
One that wont stand up for herself
When I knock you down
You'll need another town
Where somebodys gonna talk to you,
You just let me wait now its too late
For your delayed delayed emotion
