Lyric Poison Ivy


Poison Ivy
Better condition than I d be
Hook me to an IV
While I whisper, “Why me?”

In the freezer
Your words give me seizures
And if we take a breather
We ll break up and be hurt

I won t let you buy cigarettes
But I ll let you by with regrets
One thing I ll find a sure bet
A caged bird will fly is she s left
And I ll try not to cry
Your fingers dry my eyes
A memory I ll never forget

I ve been wronged
With little defense
And I ll sing a song
Of inconsequence
And my days
With you a number
And I ll be amazed
If we see another

I won t let you buy cigarettes
But I ll let you by with regrets
One thing I ll find a sure bet
A caged bird will fly if she s left
And I ll try not to cry
Your fingers dry my eyes
A memory I ll never forget

So now you ve gone way away
Say that would be the best thing
Now I fear I m wrong or at least that s what my heart is confessing
Cause I miss you
And I wish you
Were someone that I could forget
Cause I miss you
And I wish you
Were not number one on my list, my list of regrets
Now, I m broken up
Because we ve broken up
It s all a big what if
But if I d spoken up
For what I wanted

Poison Ivy
Better condition than I d be
Hook me to an IV
While I whisper, “Why me?”
