God played a joke on my vanity;
He granted me a seat at this predictable game.
It goes: You talk me into your fantasy,
Then candidly evict me just as quick as I came.

So is it me?
Is it the human condition?
These boys, they’ve been pushing my limits,
And I agree
That I'm a special edition,
But they’re underprepared & overcommitted when…

They say
My very presence is a new fascination to them—
But give it one day,
And any second they will lose fascination again.
The story of my life is to play this part;
It wouldn’t hurt me if they only fell half as hard.
Be that as it may,
I learn my lessons, & you won’t see me hanging my head
For what I haven’t found yet.

I mean, showtime will bring out the best of me;
Impressions leave you reeling at the sound of my name.
But like, you never wanted the rest of me;
Your bended knee turned into a cold shoulder in days.

I'm novelty—
There must be something intrinsic
That gets them high in less than a minute,
And I'm a queen,
Yeah, I'm a special edition,
So I don’t know why they get suddenly distant, but…


So is it me?
Is it the human condition?
These boys wanna make me their missus,
But that’s a dream.
Yeah, that’s a beautiful fiction, 'cause
They build me up & tear me down when they’re finished & then..


These boys, they’ve been pushing my limits.
They’re so underprepared & overcommitted as they say…
Oh, tell me what you have to say.
What could you possibly say?
