So Easy To Hurt Me

How do you find it so easy to hurt me...
When I do everything that you ever ask...
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you...
Not even the most impossible task...

Is it because you take me for granted...
Have I allowed you to play me the fool...
Is it because you truly disrespect me...
Is that why you treat me so cruel...

How do you find it so easy to hurt me...
When I come at your beck and call...
I’m always there to catch you...
As you’re about to stumble and fall...

Is it because you have no self respect...
As you fall face down on the floor...
Is it because you have low self esteem...
As the others throw you out their back door...

I’ve shown you nothing but respect...
I’ve tried to be there as a good friend...
I’ve always treated you like a lady...
And I’ll continue as we reach the end...

You’ve broken my heart for the last time...
You’re on your own to battle yourself...
As this unfortunate friendship...
Is being put away on the very top shelf...

Good luck with your inner demons...
Let’s hope the men start treating you better...
So this is the last you’ll hear from me...
I’m no longer interested in being your abettor...
