I heard the word goin' 'round town
They say that you're makin' a fool out of me
Baby it took me some time to come around
To realise you were not what you seemed
Each day's passin', the clock's been my friend
Help me get back on my feet again
Like the button off-a my shirt, just an every day distraction
You'd be over reactin' if you think that I still hurt
Your just a button off-a my shirt and someday I will replace you
I don't care what I have lost, you got what you deserve
I was down, down, down, I was down
I'm not the first and I won't be the last
To make the mistake of believin' in you
I don't intend to live in the past
Just like they say, some you win, some you lose
You never loved me and you made it plain
Now it's my turn and I'm playin' your game
Like the button off-a my shirt, just an every day distraction
You'd be over reactin' if you think that I still hurt
You're just a button off-a my shirt and someday I will replace you
I don't care what I have lost, you got what you deserve
Love and affection - you started
Changing direction - you threw it away-ay (down, down, down)
Girl you threw it away (down, down, down)
You never loved me and you made it plain
Now it's my turn to make you understand
Like the button off-a my shirt, just an every day distraction
You'd be over reactin' if you think that I still hurt
You're just a button off-a my shirt and someday I will replace you
I don't care what I have lost, you got what you deserve
Like the button off-a my shirt, just an every day distraction
You'd be over reactin' if you think that I still hurt
You're just a button off-a m
