Shirt Off My Back

So this is what we’ve come to these are the moments that we’ve got?
You provoke me with your words and your “I don’t care" talk
But I’ve seen your soul, remember I’ve walked this block
And your pettiness ain’t worth a second of my thoughts

You know I loved you, I know you did in kind
But now you act like you’re ready to leave it all behind
You walk with your chin up, his jewelry on you shines
But your mask of confidence is just a mask, and it’s old and it’s tired

Give yourself to a man who gives nothing back
But the money in his pockets and his verbal attacks
And you’ll receive what you believe you deserve when in fact
When you want only that you don’t deserve the shirt off my back

I’ll spare you the details of my life
You don’t need the ammunition you are doing just fine
When you come callin’ with your violin crying
My door will be barred shut, my life will be mine

You’ll paint my photo’s red but you’ll remember my face
You had jacks up your sleeves but you called it an ace
And no I ain’t leavin’ town cuz doll this ain’t no chase
You were the girl of my dreams, now you’re just a girl and I’m onto other things

Give yourself to a man who gives nothing back
But the money in his pockets and his verbal attacks
And you’ll receive what you believe you deserve when in fact
When you want only that you don’t deserve the shirt off my back

We talked for hours, did we communicate?
Was this just an inevitable twist in our fate?
Believe me when I say I hope you’re doing great
But if your tongue is forked I’ll be the first to call you a snake

Give yourself to a man who gives nothing back
But the money in his pockets and his verbal attacks
And you’ll receive what you believe you deserve when in fact
When you want only that you don’t deserve the shirt off my back
