Namecalling

She’s a slut?
But, not when she’s sleeping with you
She’s cheap?
Not when you want to show her off
She’s easy?
Don’t forget you looked at her first
She’s a whore?
She didn’t make you pay for it

She pays for it
Every time you label her
She pays for it
Every time she gets something for free
She pays for it
Every time you run out of money

Does she deserve it?
Yes or no, there’s no maybe
Do you deserve it?
You’re thinking, yeah probably
Did she go looking for it?
Nobody knows, honestly
Did you go looking for?
Like you didn’t need it desperately

If you think you know how it feels,
To pick up yourself after falling
If you think you know how it feels,
To pretend like nobody is watching
If you think you know how it feels,
To not look back when you’re walking

Then you’re gravely mistaken, I fear

Before you call her names again, look in the mirror
