Why Do You Build Me Up

“You have everything right?”, Buttercup said as I left.  I couldn’t take it anymore and I had to split, ending this toxic relationship.  I was still in love with her, but she never reciprocated her feelings.  Every time I felt like I was getting somewhere with her in this relationship, she would let me down again and again.  No matter how hard I tried, Buttercup just didn’t seem to be interested in me.  She constantly gave me mixed signals which at times encouraged me, but she also led me on and teased me, so I was never able to determine whether or not she ever actually liked me.  She built up my confidence just by seeing her around me, but then she confessed that she didn’t have any feelings towards me and she just liked messing me around.  She says she’ll call me but she doesn’t.  She said that she would come over at ten, but she was always late and she didn’t care if she left me hanging.

I loved her so much and I didn’t care how badly she treated me, as I just wanted to continue to love her.  I told her that I could easily be the one that makes her happy if she would just give me a chance.  I was desperately in love with Buttercup, but she always played around with my heart and she treated me like I was nothing more than an accessory to be on her arm, or a toy that she could play with in a sick love game.  She was a two timing whore and yet I was still attracted to her, maybe even more because of this.  Her infidelity made me feel like I needed her, so I guess that makes me twisted and it kept me going back to her for more punishment.

Why do you build me up Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down and mess me around
And then worst of all you never call, baby
When you say you will but I love you still
I need you more than anyone, darlin’
You know that I have from the start
So build me up Buttercup, don’t break my heart

“I’ll be over at ten”, you told me time and again
But you’re late, I wait around and then
I went to the door, I can’t take any more
It’s not you, you let me down again

Baby, baby, try to find
A little time and I’ll make you happy
I’ll be home
I’ll be beside the phone waiting for you

Why do you build me up Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down and mess me around
And then worst of all you never call, baby
When you say you will but I love you still
I need you more than anyone, darlin’
You know that I have from the start
So build me up Buttercup, don’t break my heart

To you I’m a toy but I could be the boy you adore
If you’d just let me know
Although you’re untrue, I’m attracted to you all the more
Why do I need you so

Baby, baby, try to find
A little time and I’ll make you happy
I’ll be home
I’ll be beside the phone waiting for you

Why do you build me up Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down and mess me around
And then worst of all you never call, baby
When you say you will but I love you still
I need you more than anyone, darlin’
You know that I have from the start
So build me up Buttercup, don’t break my heart

I-I-I need you-oo-oo more than anyone, baby
You know that I have from the start
So build me up Buttercup, don’t break my heart
