Born To Lose

Kicked from the bed to the couch to the floor
You’d think I could show myself the door
I ain’t looking to score no more
Just don’t know what for
Hanging by the minutes in this sentence chore
You always seem to need me when the black night comes
And you’re kind enough to feed me as the boob box hums
And if you’re thinking of breaking my heart in your arms tonight
Baby I was born to lose. It’d be alright
You fawn and then you yawn yeah and then just feign affection
Don’t you want the one you invited in?
Our hearts are legendary 
Still the ills upend
Coughing on the change that we can’t spend
Taking forever waiting for you to take me in forever more
Lying on pins and needles like love’s last lonely whore
And if you’re thinking of breaking my heart in your arms tonight
Baby I was born to lose. It’d be alright
I can see tomorrow and that’s more than I could see today
So if you’re wishing to spare me sorrow
Just wish that wish away
And if you’re thinking of breaking my heart in your arms tonight
Baby I was born to lose. It’d be alright
