Don't Try To Get To Close Tonight

I know you have been watching me nurse this whiskey for a while now,

I know you have see the stray tear slip down my cheek,

I’m sure you are thinking I’m easy pickings,

That with my broken heart in tote I’m easy pickings for the night.

That I’d fall for your pretty boy face as I listen to your sweet talking lies,

It’s only fair that I warn you,

It’s only fair that you know the truth,

I’m not the girl you want to play with,

I’m not the one you want to take home.

Don’t get to close to me tonight,

I have a heart full a pain and an ax to grind.

I might forget that you aren’t the one who hurt me,

I might just have to pay you back for his lies.

See I gave him all I had to offer,

I gave him my heart and my soul.

I was always there when he called me,

And I always cried when he had to go.

I built all my dreams of those special moments,

Each gift of the times he dared to come near.

I use to think that he would come around in time,

But the truth is he never did.

The day I finally realized the truth is the day he said the words “good bye”,

I watched as he walked out my front door,

Then I can here with tears in my eyes.

So don’t try to convince me to go home with you,

Don’t try to tell me you can make me forget for at least tonight.

It’s best that you get up from that bar stool,

Best you try to catch another lonely girl’s eye.

I have thoughts of heart break on my mind,

Of making another feel like I do.

I figure it’s only fair I warn you,

At least give you a fighting chance this time.

If you are smart you will listen,

Don’t try to get to close to me tonight.
