I Got It

By: Laura Alford

I got it
That message
You never sent
Yeah, I get it
Adios,
Goodbye, you split.

I saw it
The trophies
Up on your shelf.
I see it
The lies you tell yourself
The lies you tell yourself

I knew better, and I did it anyway
I knew better, and I did it anyway
I knew better, and I did it anyway
Did it anyway

I knew it
A cat can’t change his spots
I know it
But I had to take one more shot

I took it
Your apology was bait
I take it
And never, ever make you wait.
No, I never ever make you wait.

You knew better, but you did it anyway
You knew better, but you did it anyway
You knew better, but you did it anyway
Did it anyway

I felt it
When you almost let me in
I feel it
When you slam that door again.
Slam that door again.

I heard it
When you don’t call my name
I hear it
And have only myself to blame
Only myself to blame

I know better, but I do it anyway
You know better, but you do it anyway
We know better, but we do it anyway
Do it anyway
