I said I’d never let you down
And always take your side.
However, that was when I thought
I’d be your future bride.
I said I’d never lie to you
About the things that mattered.
However, that was before you broke my heart
And my five year plan was shattered.
I never wanted to hurt you, babe
Or damage your self-esteem.
However, our love was a fantasy
So I deleted your fantasy football team.
I never could fathom cheating on you
Never, not in a million years.
However, you cheated on me first
And I’m taking your brother out for beers.
