Another day, another dime
Another dollar store crime.
It's a shame, it's a lie, but it's the only thing keeping us alive.
But they wouldn't take me back and neither should you.

She hates me face
Hates my guys
It's been the law since I first pulled up.
She wanted more than life affords
Or another trip down to the store.

Couldn't be good enough and that's the truth.
Said that I'm the worst thing that's ever happened to you.

But would you need me by your side
if I can't even learn to cry?
Who'll be there to hold you tight when the bottom falls out.
Would you need me by your side
or are you just gonna run and hide?
Who'll be there to hold you tight when the bottom falls out?

Broken hearts by the floor,
Broken face crumpled by the door.
I'd shed a tear for you,
Lord knows it'd be the decent thing to do.

Life was never this hard, so why am I?
Can't even stand to look me in the eye.
