I'm Not Going

If I went to the party
You would be there
Thinking I came just to see you
And you would flirt with every man but me
I would only miss you
It would hurt
That will make you proud
Next day you'll smile at me
Be so nice
Even tell me you love me
Giving a reason
I'll understand
The games will start over
Making me suicidal
You once told me you were a witch
And I think I agree
Please don't misunderstand
I don't think you're bad
And I like you too
I just can't take the pain that comes from you
Things you have inside
Needing to work out
Them things are working me over
It's just me
I'm just a softy
You need to find someone else
Someone stronger than me
