Lyrics

He said, "Baby, don't you look that way
things won't stay the way they are today."
And I'd never seen a brighter fire
I'd never seen a more perfect liar

On a poor man's bet I took his hand
on shaky knees I learned to dance
I might've been a crutch or a passing whim
but I was something that belonged to him
I was something that belonged to him

I was a screen door, torn and crooked on a hinge
He was the breeze just blowing through and gone again
My desperation hangs like flesh on razor wire
I am a broken tool at the hands of a perfect liar

Time can change it all, I've heard
can even turn a serpent to a bird
I've been thumbing for the sky or bust
but I'm still on my belly in the dust
I'm still on my belly in the dust

I was a screen door, torn and crooked on a hinge
he was the breeze just blowing through and gone again
My desperation hangs like flesh on razor wire
I am a broken tool at the hands of a perfect liar

Well, the dirty rotten truth of it
is I was just a selfish bitch
Some would say I got what I deserved
I hope someday I'll get what I deserve

I was a screen door, torn and crooked on a hinge
he was the breeze just blowing through and gone again
My desperation hangs like flesh on razor wire
I am a broken fool and a perfect liar
