before and after

since she left her home, she's felt alone
always talking on the telephone
to her mama, give me some space
she says that's not the case

we just started, but now we're through
she says that's not true, i love you
now I know I was a sub for her father
she says that's not true, i love you
but it's so close, why bother

I thought she liked me for me
not for what I could do for her
So when she saw "me", I saw "we"
but some spaced helped a lover uncover
truth in uncertainty

we just started, but now we're through
she says that's not true, i love you
now I know I was a sub for her father
she says that's not true, i love you
but it's so close, why bother

she called it self defense
but it seemed like recompense
In an effort to protect herself, she stabbed me
and I was blinded-sided by her generosity
didn't see it coming,
didn't know she had it in her
I thought she was so loving,
Et Brute' you're her bother

we just started, but now we're through
she says that is true, i don't love you
you don't love me like my father
I say that is true, but I loved you,
why'd I bother
