Back of the line
You never come first
You’re second choice
The one who gets hurt.

The brunt of his jokes
The one standing by
The one who’s deceived
With bullshit and lies.

You need to be strong 
Be sure of yourself
He’ll leave you behind
He’s out for himself.

Why sit by the phone
Hoping he’ll text?
When all that he does
Is use you for sex.

Show him the door 
Tell him to leave
You’re not what he wants
He’s not what you need.
