Hello darling number three
It's nice to see that you are completely enamored with me
But I have to ask you now to leave
Because you are the "other woman" to another jealous woman, you see
It might be best
to just forget I exist
I've met a lot of pretty women
and you're not the prettiest by far.

Hello mister, I confess
You had my heart when you first told me that you were a mess
I told you that I didn't care
Said, "I'd love to have you love me and I don't mind if I have to share."
But now I see
I misjudged my ability
to separate emotions from
the basest of all human motions

Goodbye darling, now you've learned
That love can hurt you, even fireproof girls someday get burned
And I really wish you wouldn't cry
It will make me feel I'm guilty and I know that my eyes will remain dry.
This is the end--
but it doesn't mean we can't be friends!
The sex was good, I guess, but you are
just an empty vessel, it seems.

Goodbye mister, see you've won!
You've got new lovers but the damage to my heart has been done
And I'll tell you everything's alright
but I'm shaking underneath my skin and breaking open every night.
You'll soon forget,
another woman in your bed
But I am ever tainted,
ever frayed--

For girls who think they are fireproof: you are not.
