I thought we could be friends

But I was foolish

You betrayed me and shed no tears

You betrayed me

And shed no tears


Talk behind my back

Please make my day

I know your game

Watch me join in

Even though you never hear me


Who am I, to you?

Clearly not a sister

Never reduce me to acquaintance

You didn’t care to hear me—

Still, I did it all for you, my friend


I thought it would burn out

Once you got yours

You were satisfied and left

You were satisfied

And left


Spin your gossip wheel

Please make my day

I refuse to dance

But you ask me to leap in

Even though you don’t know me


Who am I, to you?

Clearly not a stranger

Never reduce me to liar

You didn’t care to know me—

So, who’s the real loser, my friend?
