Masquerade At My Expense
Author: Stacey


How sweet you were
when you'd call
How sweet you were
I fell for it all

You always seemed
to be short some cash
I went to work
I busted my ass

When you were sick
I babied you
Stupid me
I had no clue

Deceptive words
escape your lips
So many lies
I HATE this shit

------- Author's Notes -------

unfortunately... i found out my brother has a cocaine addiction
