1. Boys Like Him

Mama said there'd be boys like him,
Wearing my heart so thin.
Doing what he does… best.
Taking me for a ride,
Telling me pretty little lies.
But with him, I couldn't resist.

Before I met him, I always felt good enough.
Before I let him in, I didn't want to give up.
Left on read, no reply.
Left me just wondering why.
Made me sceptical of love.

When he held my hand,
He didn't want to hold my heart.
When he said he wanted me,
It was only one part.

So when he held my hand,
He didn't want to hold my heart.
When he said he wanted me,
It was only one part.

Mama said there'd be boys like him,
Wearing my heart so thin.
Doing what he does… best.
Taking me for a ride,
Telling me pretty little lies.
But with him, I couldn't resist.

I was terrified,
Because he used to hurt me so.
Social suicide, if I ever let it show.
Everything felt so right,
Until it happened, on that night,
And he hit me, for the first time.

When he held my hand,
He didn't want to hold my heart.
When he said he wanted me,
It was only one part.

So when he held my hand,
He didn't want to hold my heart.
When he said he wanted me,
It was only one part.

Mama said there'd be boys like him,
Wearing my heart so thin.
Doing what he does… best.
Taking me for a ride,
Telling me pretty little lies.
But with him, I couldn't resist.
Maybe Mama always knew best.
