lyrics

Bitter and Twisted

Bitter and twisted,
Battered and bruised,
Rockin’ and a-reelin’
From being used;
Oh, lovin’ and a-leavin’,
Such a well-worn phrase,
Never thought I’d end up
Being dumped that way.

You told me that you loved me
From the bottom of your heart,
Though another girl was in your life,
I knew right from the start;
She’d been a friend for years, you said,
You knew her in high school,
Told me not to worry—
I was such a naïve fool!

And now I’m bitter and twisted,
Battered and bruised,
Rockin’ and a-reelin’
From being used;
Oh, lovin’ and a-leavin’,
Such a well-worn phrase,
Never thought I’d end up
Being dumped that way.

Shoulda seen it coming,
Shoulda known your type,
Shoulda felt the fire behind the smoke,
Shoulda seen right through your lies.

Inst. break

I’ve heard it on the grapevine,
You two look set for life,
She’s all you ever wanted,
The apple of your eye;
I try to say I’m glad for you,
But it comes out sounding wrong;
Why’d you have to mess with me
When you loved her all along?

And now I’m bitter and twisted,
Battered and bruised,
Rockin’ and a-reelin’
From being used;
Oh, lovin’ and a-leavin’,
Such a well-worn phrase,
Never thought I’d end up
Being dumped that way.

No, never thought I’d end up like this,
Being dumped that way.
