I thought that he was all I needed.
I thought I found the perfect connection.
It was so hot I didn’t feel the bleeding
after the fight for his affection.

Now I’m tired the side effects
the open ended sores and the slamming of the doors.
I remember every word he said
I can’t forget his side effects.

I wanna make you my daily routine.
I wanna think it’s not all in my head.
As I lie here I wanna believe
that this is more than it seems.

‘Cause I’m tired of the side effects
the headaches and the fainting and the endless nights of waiting.
I remember every word he said
I try to forget the side effects. [try to forget]

I just wanted to be held. Look what you started.

Moving on now.

You are exactly what I needed,
always looking for the brightest star.
It’s funny that that’s how you see me,
maybe we’re meant to be, just the way we are…

without any side effects
only love and respect, you’re better than the rest.
The only thing I get from you
has a positive effect…. on me…
No side effects.
We’ll have the most amazing
