Don’t come back for seconds
Shields up …. On red alert
Tired of wasting my time
So tired of getting hurt.

Just a stop along the way
You’re not that into me
Just a respite …. a quick fix
So please just let me be.

I’m still broken-hearted
You left me …. high and dry
It’s more than decades later ….
And … I’m still … still asking why.

Feeling so confused and hurt
Would have done most anything
Tried so hard to pretend
But we can’t start again.

You told me that …. it’s over
That you had changed your mind
So don’t come back…. back over
Not for seconds …. not this time.
