She’s heard the words so many times before
They’ve lost all meaning at this point
And more than anything they just piss her off.
She’d prefer we just keep our mouth shut.
Even when we mean ’em, keep ’em to ourselves.
This is her life and she’s gonna live it
The very best way that she can find.
She doesn’t need our encouragement
And she sure as hell doesn’t need our permission.
She could give a damn if we’re dissappointed,
Cares even less whether we approve.
Remember we wanted in her life,
She never even asked for our company.
Each excuse, so very pathetic, she knows it by heart,
Because we are not the first, nor the last,
To lie to her, assume she can’t see through
Our schemes to the heart of our deceit.
