Stop ****in' around with my emotions
I like you better when you're numb
I'm sick and tired of false devotion
Devote yourself to movin' on
Or suck it up and let it go

But you're always out to get me

You're the snake hidden in my daffodils when I'm picking flowers
That's just my luck these days
Why can't you just be happy for me?
You're the break lines failing as my car swerves off the freeway
It kind of feels like sabotage
Why can't you just be happy for
Why can't you just be happy for me?

You think your opinions make you savvy
Your running mouth falls on deaf ears
You say you're winning 'cause your laughin'
Well I'm cryin' crocodile tears
Just suck it up and let it go

But you're always out to get me

You're the snake hidden in my daffodils when I'm picking flowers
That's just my luck these days
Why can't you just be happy for me?
You're the break lines failing as my car swerves off the freeway
It kind of feels like sabotage
Why can't you just be happy for,
Why can't you just be happy for me?

(Why can't you just be happy for)

Why can't you just be happy for me?
(I'll never be good enough no, I'll never be good enough)
Why can't you just be happy for me?
(I'll never be good enough no, I'll never be good enough)

But you're always out to get me

You're the snake hidden in my daffodils when I'm picking flowers
That's just my luck these days
Why can't you just be happy for me?
You're the break lines failing as my car swerves off the freeway
It kind of feels like sabotage
Why can't you just be happy for,
Why can't you just be happy for me?

(Stop ****in' around with my emotions
Why can't you just be happy for
Stop ****in' around with my emotions
Why can't you just be happy for me?)
