STOP MESSIN’ ME AROUND

You don’t miss what you don’t need
If you don’t need then what am I doing here
Time after time I find I’m waiting on a phone call
Absence can make the heart grow fonder
But the heart grows colder every day
If you don’t believe you need to try to give me something more

You keep on telling me your mine
Well I have heard it all before
Don’t you think it’s kind of time
To just stop messin’ me around

You think I’m just some low fruit hanging
On your every little word that would taste so good
But you can’t touch no more now that I’m out of reach
They say you make your bed now you lie in it
Well honey it just don’t work that way
It isn’t enough to think all you need to change are the sheets

You keep on telling me you’ll change
But I have heard it all before
I’m tired of playing this charade
So just stop messin’ me around

I finally see you’re like a Cool Hand Luke with your way of talking
You better believe the way you’re headed you’ll be a dead man walking out of here

You keep on saying it’s not a game
Well I have heard it all before
Don’t you think it’s kind of lame
You can’t help messin’ me around
