Lyrics

I've been had
Had by my famous friend who always laughs
She says that she feels so trapped
When I'm around her

Lay in her bed
Listen to the stereo and feel so sad
Think of all the reasons that this has to end,
Why things never last

I've been sad
I've been had

She says I'm too sweet
This is the reason she can't be with me
Made myself too available, it seems
Maybe I should be more bad

I've been sad
I've been had

At the most
It's been five days, on-and-off, for us
I guess I just should have known
It'd be just like the past

I've been sad
I've been had
