Like a dog w/a bone
You just leave me alone
And think that I’ll be here
for you when you come home
But when you find your way back
don’t be surprised to find that
another dog has got your bone

1st Verse

You don’t want me
And you don’t want nobody else to have me
You say & do just enough to keep me around
Got my nose so wide open
I can’t see the ground

Where are you when I need love
Where are you when I need care
Apparently, everywhere else but here baby
Floating in & out my life
Whenever you feel like
And I’m positive
Something’s got to give


2nd Verse

Why trying to hold onto me
When you know somebody else would treat me better
I guess you want me here in case you change your mind
And decide you really want me
But you don’t have much time, oh no

What makes you think I’ll still be here
the next time you disappear
If that’s the case, then you’re sadly mistaken baby
As soon as someone comes along
Turn your back and I’ll be gone
Cause I’m sure, I can’t wait for you no more


What so you want w/me
You now you just can’t be
