(v1)
Yeah, you know all I've ever worked for
is right here in my sight
Gonna reach my hand
Grab at all that I can
I'm not wasting any more time

(pre-chorus)
Because the only way I'll be happy
Is if I hold in my arms
What they tried to keep away from me

(Chorus)
You know, i'm the type of guy
Who falls for the same trick twice
And I'm still losing sleep
Over what you did to me
And what you'll probably do with him tonight

(v2)
I hoped that there was more to you
Than you were letting the world see
Said, "if you need someone to talk to, girl,
you've always got me."
But then you tell me I'm not good enough
Tell me I'm not as great as him
And the best part of it all
Is you don't have to say a thing

(chorus)
You know, i'm the type of guy
Who falls for the same trick twice
And I'm still losing sleep
Over what you did to me
And what you'll probably do with him tonight

(bridge)
So you whispered in my ear
Told me exactly what you wanted me to hear
I'm not sure what you've been told
It's not quite a limitless world
I gave you everything I had
Then you up & disappear

(chorus x2)
You know, i'm the type of guy
Who falls for the same trick twice
And I'm still losing sleep
Over what you did to me
And what you'll probably do with him tonight...


Yeah yeah yeah. Tell me whatcha think!

Its OK man, a standard rehash on a ubiquitous theme..
The thing is when you're writing about hurt over a girl so on and so forth, I reckon its vital that you do something different. Think of ways to say something without REALLY saying. Leave lines open to interpretation ism ism ism.

Oh, and just a warning too: Songs very rarely get critiqued on here man.
Yeah, I know. The forum title is misleading.
Its mainly broody poetry gets the most attention.
Good broody poetry mind.
But broody poetry all the same.
