Talk about cliche
I've got my heart on my sleeve.
Unsure what to do
Don't know where to go.
You reeled me in like a little fish
You've pulled me around like a puppet on a string
You let me go like nothing ever happened.
Well let me tell you one thing
You won't do this to me no more
I bet you'll let me just walk right out that door.
All I want is for you to say
That you want me to stay,
That things will be okay.
Show me that you still care
And stop telling me what I should wear.
