Monopoly Lyrics

there's something i have to say
i don't quite know why or how
something about the way you treated me
when you went out tonight

it's like you can't stand unless you can stand next to me
like, like you can throw your love's lasso
around all of my complexities
and hold my attention like a lease (?leash?) on my time
til not even i can occupy my mind

now you may be thinking i'm just here to blame you
shame you for playing Monopoly
but wait there's more, that's just half the story
we're still ignoring me
cuz my heart will surely break for the border
rather than become a prisoner

baby, are you listening?
baby are you listening to me now?
saying it's not just your imagination
saying we're gonna need some divine inspiration at this point

yes, cuz you keep saying that you love me
but it's like you just love the way i make you feel
yes and it ain't gonna be pretty when i factor myself back into the deal

and it's endless, endless, endless, endless, endless the people to attend to
and if anyone, anyone, anyone, anyone, anyone should understand
i think it would be you

but this rundown remnant of my boldness
is not up to code
and it's not up to me but that pushover
has been carrying the mother lode

and i've been crying mercy
and i've been getting' none
and you're starting to feel like everyone, everyone, everyone, everyone

you keep saying that you love me
but it's like you just love the way i make you feel
yes and it ain't gonna be pretty when i factor myself back into the deal

so maybe like a lake with no reflection
of the trees or the sky
it was i that failed you with no opposite reality
anyway you figured it all out
so i only am left wondering why
why you wanna get off on a technicality
cuz you always put yourself above me

baby you were so in love with the way i made you feel
yes, yes, yes, yes and i told you that it won't be pretty when i factor
myself back into the deal

there's something i have to say
i don't quite know why or how
something about the way you treated me
