I've been biting my tongue
Been so subtly kind
I've got to think so selfishly 'cause you're the face inside of me.
I've been biding my days, you see,
Evidently it pays
I've been a friend with unbiased views,
Then secretly lust after you
So now you feel lusty, you're bored & bemused
You want to do someone else
So you should be by yourself
Instead of here with me, secretly
Trying hard to think pure
Bloody hard when I'm raw
You're talking out so sexually
'bout boys & girls & your friggin' dreams
Now you feel lusty, you're hot & confused
You want to do someone else, so you should be by yourself, instead of here with me, secretly
So now you've been busted, you're caught feeling used.
You had to do someone else, you shoulda been by yourself, (x2)
Instead of here with me

(repeat ending)
