Oh these little rejections how they add up quickly One small sideways look and I feel so ungood Somewhere along the way I think I gave you the power to make Me feel the way I thought only my father could
Oh these little rejections how they seem so real to me One forgotten birthday I'm all but cooked How these little abandonment's seem to sting so easily I'm 13 again am I 13 for good?
I can feel so unsexy for someone so beautiful So unloved for someone so fine I can feel so boring for someone so interesting So ignorant for someone of sound mind
Oh these little protections how they fail to serve me One forgotten phone call and I'm deflated Oh these little defenses how they fail to comfort me Your hand pulling away and I'm devastated
When will you stop leaving baby? When will I stop deserting baby? When will I start staying with myself?
Oh these little projections how they keep springing from me I jump my ship as I take it personally Oh these little rejections how they disappear quickly The moment I decide not to abandon me
