Choices

        choices... cruel and tender
        always... return to sender

      you try to free yourself from love
      the pain you get won't go away
      you hang your heart on some new hope
      and deal with their shit every day

          you think you're making choices
          but it all turns out the same...
          why not do it differently
          and prove you're not insane?

      so then you quit your dead end job
      you say it's time to get your share
      you buy some books and study hard
      and make your boss a millionaire

        choices... cruel and tender
        always... return to sender

      thumb your nose at the trendy crowd
      no one tells you what to do
      but you get tired of being alone
      and tap your toes to top ten tunes

          you think you're making choices
          but it all turns out the same...
          why not do it differently
          and prove you're not insane?

      you wrote a song about your girl
      it always used to make her smile
      but now that she has gone away
      shouldn't you let it rest a while?

        make a choice!
