*March 1999, another one from the archive. Just have two verses and no chorus or bridge. I actually developed accompaniment on the guitar four years ago but I don't remember it now.

Girl you really hit me hard
I was just another playing card in your bed
Girl you learned to use my love
but the thought was way above my head
I was the only stable one
to subsequently con (oh yeah).

Girl you really hit me hard
but you only caught a small shard.
Girl you tried to cling to me
and pull my heart strings free to thee.
I was the only stable one
but you never won (over me).
