You had the nerve to say
I should be thankful you waited until Christmas Day
Saved you all those prying questions from your family
Should they find out by February
They’ll assume you cheated on me
Maybe things got crazy at some New Years party

You said you thought about Christmas Eve
Because then you wouldn’t have to get me anything
But all the cabs would be so busy
One bad snowfall you’d be stuck with me

I drank March away
Well, I guess no more than when you were still with me
I couldn’t even wreck myself adequately
Your beauty seemed frivolous to me
That’s what I told all the friends I knew you’d see
Now they wonder why you took so long to leave

Let’s pretend I deserve better
Let’s pretend the blame doesn’t fall on me
These scars of youth can be crippling

Let’s pretend you can’t do better
Let’s pretend you still stop and think of me
These scars of youth can be crippling
