As you poured out the drinks for me
I felt your hooks sink right into me
And I knew you were my destiny
And I thought you'd get the best of me

On the way down to Mexico
As I danced in your rodeo
You say poverty is picturesque
As you dragged your nails across my chest

You're so cold, you're so cruel
I'm your man, not your fool

Are you already over (sick of) (tired of) me?
What a fool I've been

In the first flash of ecstasy
As you lay naked next to me
While our love put the dawn to flight
I just ignored all those warning lights

Cause when you laugh, I just cry
And when you left, I just died

Hard to hold on to a love divine, ah yeah
I'm kneeling in a corner, praying to your shrine, ah yeah

I'm so hurt, so confused
And I've been burned and I've been bruised
