when you were mine lyrics – ani difranco

when you were mine, i gave you all of my money
time after time, you done me wrong
just like a dream
you let all my friends come over and you,
you were so strange
didn’t have the decency to change the sheets

when you were mine, i used to let you wear all of my
clothes
you were so fine
maybe that’s the reason why it hurts me so

i know that girl is taking up your time
but i don’t care ’cause i love you baby, that’s no lie.
i love you more than i did when you were mine.

when you were mine, you were sorta my best friend
so i was blind, i let you fool around, yeah
i never cared, i was never the kind to make a fuss when
she was there.
sleeping in between the two of us

and i know that girl is taking up your time
but i don’t care ’cause i love you baby, that’s no lie
i love you more than i did when you were mine.

when you were mine, yeah
you were all i ever wanted to do
i spent my time following her whenever she was with you

and i know that girl is taking up your time
but i don’t care, ’cause i love you baby, that’s no lie
i love you more than i did when you were mine.
and i know that girl is taking up your time but i don’t
care
’cause i love you baby, that’s no lie
i love you more than i did when you were mine.
yeah, yeah, yeah
when you were mine
