  You build up her ego, and Love her all night.
She repays you with hurt and starts a fight.
Plays games with your head; steals pride like a thief,
She abuses your trust and laughs at your grief.

She's not looking for love, for money or friends.
She just wants to see how far your love bends.
She’ll break your heart with a loving embrace,
Laugh at your tears, and spit in your face.

“Unconditional” love is a two way street.
That’s a condition of love she’s unwilling to meet.
The beat of your heart is stronger than most.
But you'll find in your heart that HER love’s a ghost.

Be true to yourself ‘cause that’s all that matters.
When push comes to shove, she’ll see who shatters.
This friendship of yours is killing your soul.
To see you happy is my personal goal.

You hold the light, the strength and the love.
It flows from your soul like rains from above.
Go forth with your trust - be true to yourself.
Be the Scorpio you are. Get your pride off the shelf.

When you let her go, we’ll help you stand.
True friends will be there to hold your hand.
Tammy, oh Tammy, your friends are right here.
We’ll love you and help you, and hold you near.
-Ty Duncan
