The Umpteenth Time

VERSE ONE

What is past is prologue
is just ammunition

You broke your back deadlifting
All of her contrition

That's great. You made up
with just one more final warning

Near misses every hint to follow
I thought you knew this story

Around the umpteenth time
You extended the line
And you reckon that what you feared is true

CHORUS

Can you save her from herself?
You can not save her from herself
If you can't save her from herself
She'll just go look somewhere else.

VERSE TWO

Unpleasant breakup?
Like there's another option

Half a dozen miracles still
awaiting adoption

Down to the corner you go
Marching for diversion

You can't return nearly fast enough
She’s already rehearsing

Around the umpteenth time
You extended the line
and you reckon that what you feared is true

CHORUS

Can you save her from herself?
You can not save her from herself
If you can't save her from herself
She'll just go look somewhere else.
