she tells them she's not looking to get involved
that they should just keep it moving
they insist they aren't either
...they just want to be friends
& isn't it just conceit on her part...to presume  
but she's so often been driven down this well-traveled road
...knows where it probably leads
...& how it will likely end
her constant response to this accusation
to a sense of over-inflated ego
...is always the same
it might be...I am too full of myself...
...if it hadn't so frequently proven to be true
you'll say what you have to...
...trying to change my point of view
wear me down...in the hopes...
...I'll eventually see reason
...& finally want you
you think you're clever
playing a fresh game
trust me...you're no better than the others
....motives the same
looking at boundaries as a challenge
no will always be...no

same song...different verse
& they never learn
as one by one they rise & fall
she's not conceited...
...she's just trying to meet herself...
...& heal from the damage
...done by them all
