New Rules

One, one, one… Talking in my sleep at night Making myself crazy -Out of

One, one, one…

Talking in my sleep at night
Making myself crazy
-Out of my mind, out of my mind-
Wrote it down and read it out
Hoping it would save me
-Too many times, too many times-
My love, he makes me feel like nobody else
Nobody else
But my love, he doesn’t love me
So I tell myself
I tell myself

One, don’t pick up the phone
You know he’s only calling
Because he’s drunk and alone
Two, don’t let him in
You’ll have to kick him out again
Three, don’t be his friend
You know you’re going to wake up
In his bed in the morning
And if you’re under him
You ain’t getting over him

I got new rules, I count them
I got new rules, I count them
I got to tell them to myself
I got new rules, I count them
I got to tell them to myself

I keep pushing forwards
But he keeps pulling me backwards
-Nowhere to turn- no way
-Nowhere to turn- no
Now I’m standing back from it
I finally see the pattern
-I never learn, I never learn-
But my love, he doesn’t love me
So I tell myself
I tell myself
I do, I do, I do

One, don’t pick up the phone
You know he’s only calling
Because he’s drunk and alone
Two, don’t let him in
You’ll have to kick him out again
Three, don’t be his friend
You know you’re going to wake up
In his bed in the morning
And if you’re under him
You ain’t getting over him

I got new rules, I count them
I got new rules, I count them
I got to tell them to myself
I got new rules, I count them
I got to tell them to myself

Practice makes perfect
I’m still trying to learn it by heart
-I got new rules, I count them-
Eat, sleep, and breathe it
Rehearse and repeat it, because I…
-I got new, I got new, I…-

One, don’t pick up the phone
You know he’s only calling
Because he’s drunk and alone
Two, don’t let him in
You’ll have to kick him out again
Three, don’t be his friend
You know you’re going to wake up
In his bed in the morning
And if you’re under him
You ain’t getting over him

I got new rules, I count them
I got new rules, I count them
I got to tell them to myself
I got new rules, I count them
-Baby, you know I count them-
I got to tell them to myself

Don’t let him in, don’t let him in
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
Don’t be his friend, don’t be his friend
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
Don’t let him in, don’t let him in
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
Don’t be his friend, don’t be his friend
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
You’re getting over him
