Buttercup

  • You talk about the junk you did,
    Like you talk about climbing trees
    You look like a little kid,
    With bruises on your knees

    You will never cop,
    To the damage that's been done
    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 suck me dry,
    Can't do it any more honey
    You rough me up and make me cry,
    And you wanna borrow money

    You say you feel like a failure,
    And wish you cold take it all back
    Well honey I gotta tell you,
    It's a little too late for that

    Now you want somebody to be your buttercup,
    Good luck finding your buttercup

    Glory is an act of the other
    You're always feeling bad
    Maybe you couldn't talk to your mother,
    Or stand up to your dad

    You want my forgiveness,
    That I'll give to you
    But you got yourself into this mess,
    There's nothing I can do

    Now you want somebody to be your buttercup,
    Good luck finding your buttercup

    First time I saw you,
    You would make 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 soon or later, it all goes south,
    You tell too many lies

    Now you want somebody to be your buttercup,
    Good luck finding your buttercup
    Good luck finding your buttercup
    Good luck finding your buttercup Writer/s: LUCINDA WILLIAMS
