Roommate

 

I said I’m signing a contract 
A business agreement 
I said I love you as a human 
But don’t get it twisted, I’m not your friend 

And I thought if I signed the dotted line 
I could help you keep your mind intact 

I don’t know what I’m doing here 
I told you I’d go 
And not come back, and not come back 

Oh roommate 

Don’t need a key but I hold one 
You left the door standing open 
Don’t need heat 
The fire’s still burning 
I’ve got the candles 
you keep forgetting 

And I thought if I signed the dotted line 
I could help you keep your mind intact 

I don’t know what I’m doing here 
I told you I’d go 
And not come back, and not come back 

You insisted I stay 
It’s a safe place next to your heart 
I pretended to cave 
This is the last I’ll pay for what I don’t want 

A roommate
