This is the last time you say,
After the last line you break,
It's not even a holiday,
Nothing to celebrate.
You give a hundred reasons why,
And you say you're really gonna try.
If I had a nickel for everytime,
I'd own the bank (bank, bank, bank)

Thought that I was the exception,
I could rewrite your addiction,
You could've been the greatest,
But you'd rather get wasted.

You fall asleep during foreplay,
'Cause the pills you take are more your forte.
I'm not sticking around to watch you go down.
Wanna be your lover, not your fuckin' mother.
Can't be your saviour, I don't have the power.
I'm not gonna stay and watch you circle the drain,
Watch you circle the drain,
Watch you circle the drain.

You say you have to write your rhymes,
Whatever helps you sleep at night
You've become what you despise,
A stereotype
You think you're so rock and roll,
But you're really just a joke.
Had the world in the palm of your hands,
But you fuckin choked

Should've been my team mate,
Could've changed your fate,
You say that you love me,
You won't remember in the morning.

You fall asleep during foreplay,
'Cause the pills you take are more your forte.
I'm not sticking around to watch you go down.
Wanna be your lover, not your fuckin' mother.
Can't be your saviour, I don't have the power.
I'm not gonna stay and watch you circle the drain,
Watch you circle the drain,
Watch you circle the drain.

You fall asleep during foreplay,
'Cause the pills you take are more your forte.
I'm not sticking around to watch you go down.
Wanna be your lover, not your fuckin' mother.
Can't be your saviour, I don't have the power.
I'm not gonna stay and watch you circle the drain,
Watch you circle the drain,
Watch you circle the drain.

Watch you circle the drain
Watch you circle the drain

You fall asleep during foreplay,
'Cause the pills you take are more your forte.
I'm not sticking around to watch you go down.

    This song is about Travis Mccoy from Gym Class Heroes! They were together for 2 years and engaged, and he was a big addict to pharmaceuticals and opiates. I can understand why she wrote it, being so in love with someone but they're messed up and you want them to change for you. I think 'The One That Got Away' is also about him, but doesn't attack him as much as she does in this.
