Lucinda Williams – Buttercup lyrics
You talk about the junk you do like you talk about climbing trees
You live the life of a little kid with bruises on your knees
You will never cop to the damage that's been done
But you will never stop 'cause it's too much fun
Now you want somebody to be your buttercup
Good luck finding your buttercup

You already sucked me dry, can't do it anymore honey
You roughed me up and made me cry, now you wanna borrow money
You say you feel like a failure and you wish you could take it all back
But honey I gotta tell ya, it's a little too late for that
And now you want somebody to be your buttercup
Good luck finding your buttercup

One reason after the other you're always feeling sad
Maybe you couldn't talk to your mother or stand up to your dad
You want my forgiveness and that I will give to you
But you got yourself into this mess and there's nothing I can do
And now you want somebody to be your buttercup
Good luck finding your buttercup

The first time I saw you, you made me melt
The last time I saw you, you hit below the belt
You might have a beautiful mouth, you might have beautiful eyes
But sooner or later it all goes south when you tell too many lies
And now you want somebody to be your buttercup
Good luck finding your buttercup
Good luck finding your buttercup
Good luck finding your buttercup
