lyrics

VERSE
How can you ask me for anything
When I already gave you it all
You’re so good at buttering me up
And being gone when I fall
Do you get some kinda satisfaction
From seeing me low
Knowing that you’re the one I can’t have
But the one I need the most

PRE CHORUS
Why do you think
That I lie awake
And dream of you
Did ya think maybe it’s ‘cause
You gave me a reason to

CHORUS
Oh you’re pulling me left
You’re pulling me right
You’re calling me to come over tonight
Then you say it’s getting late
You probably shouldn’t stay
And I leave with my tail tucked between my legs
I don’t know how I got myself here
Baby you’re a puppeteer
Oh baby you’re a puppeteer

VERSE
How can you look deep into my eyes
And have me charmed like a snake
I’m making love to disaster
And kissing my biggest mistake
But even though, all this I know
I can’t seem to let you go
So I stick around like gum on your shoe
Hoping that you might love me too

PRE CHORUS
Oh but why do ya think
That I lie awake
And dream of you
Did ya think maybe it’s ‘cause
You gave me a reason to

CHORUS
Oh you’re pulling me left
You’re pulling me right
You’re calling me to come over tonight
Then you say it’s getting late
You probably shouldn’t stay
And I leave with my tail tucked between my legs
I don’t know how I got myself here
Baby you’re a puppeteer
BRIDGE
Ah well honey it’s been fun
We had our run
But it’s time to say goodbye
Now I’m done

LAST CHORUS
No more pulling me left
Or pulling me right
I’m ignoring those calls
And staying home tonight
Call whoever's on deck
That’ll put up with your mess
‘Cause this girl is so over it
The curtain is closing my dear
Oh cut my strings, Mr. Puppeteer
Yeah Yeah
My show will go on, Mr. Puppeteer
