She never said she loved you
She never said she cared
You put that in your own head
And your fool heart kept it there
Hey now, down in the mouth
Listen to the radio
It wasn't built to last
And she all but told you so
Yeah, she calls ya "handsome"
Yeah, she thinks you're cool
But there's notches on 'er bedpost
And you're just a lovesick fool

She never makes mistakes
So she never takes the blame
She might've said your name one time
But the candle didn't light the flame
Hey now, down in the mouth
Have another shot of booze
You've done your share of using
How's it feel to be used?
Everybody's dyin' out there
Everybody's scared
Life is full of beauty
And no one says it's fair

She took you to her bed
Said the words dreams are man of
But her man in San Francisco
Is the only one she loves
Hey now, down in the mouth
She put the poison in your cup
But you're better off without her
So things are lookin' up
Next time that I see her
Should I say you wished her well
Maybe just give it some time
Ya know you're bound to see her in hell
