I do carry the baggage better than you.
But does it make it any lesser?
Does it make my life any easier?
I cry less often than you do.
But I consider it a handicap,
Not one of my strengths.
I don't lie or commit treachery, baby.
Unlike you, I don't know how to use
People for my own amuse.
I was a fool for you.
Doesn't ease the pain.
But sure, a new notch in the belt for you.
And if I were you, I'd let me be. I'd be kinder.
At least I'd have stayed away and retained my pure form.
But now that you've made me into a tangled mess,
I barely recognize me.
