Kick in the Teeth – Written February 1996 (Aged 20)

Kick in the Teeth

i would like you to get out of my life
just get out, i do not need you
i did give you a little respect
and i got in return was a kick in the teeth
and a slap in the face
i would like you to get out of my life
you take up too much space
you leave me alone,
i clearly gave you too much
and yet, you are surprised that i am upset
you treat me like something stuck on your shoe
so devoid of respect,
what could i do
could you just stay away from me
i would not go near you if you were on the floor
and you started to bleed
i do not care anymore
you burst the bubble and now i do not believe
could get out of my life
the last favour i ask is that you leave
we had too many fights
and you are a twisted sister
who hurts people when she speaks
another insecure rich child
who gives me another kick in the teeth
could you get out of my life
you do not feel right
it does not seem to pay to show any respect
i might as well used you
for all the care you show
could you get out of my life
just go, and do not ever phone
