Codependency (Song)

You and I are just the same,
our love/hate relationship is all to blame.
I love to hate you, it's just me,
all a part of our… codependency.

You left me for that other one,
thought you would have both me and your fun.
That fell through and you came crawling back,
I took you back in 'cuz of what I lack.

Oh… I thought your love was real,
but, I'm just stuck under your heel.

You know I hate you when you drink,
come home drunk and raise a stink.
Don't know what I'll do when you're gone,
without you I can't carry on.

Stole my keys and took my car,
'Times I don't know who you are.
Wrecked it before you got home,
'Specked I'd still take you for my own.

Oh… I thought your love was real,
but, I'm just stuck under your heel.

You went out with your friends,
landed in jail; it never ends.
'Specked me to bail you out,
so I did, you worthless lout.

You called from the hospital the other day,
said you were near death; I should pray.
I prayed for your death, so I'd be free.
Paid your bill; praising your honesty.

Oh… I thought your love was real,
but, I'm just stuck under your heel.

On your stupid, stiletto heel...
your heel, dammit…
your god damned heel!



Under the heel

Thought I'd write a little country song.
Since most of those mournful country
songs come from codependent relationships,
I thought I'd get right to the point. Remember,
I just write 'em; don't participate in 'em.
