Playgirl

Woke up this morning to the smell of the rain
Tears running down your window pane
Little pictures on your telephone
To remind you that you're not alone
Through the curtains see the breaking sun
Let you know you're not the only one
With your eyes closed
You can count the fingers on one hand
You've been sleeping with the wrong man
Couldn't see through the tick fog
And now you are falling off a log
Looking at your diamond all but a fake
Your heart was sleeping now it's wide awake
And all your boyfriends in the living room
sit and tell you it was never you
Trailing scoobydoos and pokemon
Taxi is here, now so come on, come on
lets get out there
No looking back it's just history
You've been barking up with the wrong tree
Now just follow your own hose
You can do it with your eyes closed
Count the fingers on one hand
You've been sleeping with the wrong man
teaching tricks to an old dog
You can do it with your eyes closed
Now you are falling off a log
