Maybe if you repeat something over and over again, it'll come true.

lyrics

I see you’re having trouble sleeping
Keep me up or I’ll be dreaming of you
And pretty soon I’ll be worth keeping
But for now baby keep dreaming that day will come
That day will come

I see you’re having trouble breathing
Let me help you out of all that clothing
And like a snake I’ll slither on your skin
But only give enough to make you want it again
I’ll make you want me again

I’ll be your favorite girl, that way I’ll never get hurt
Keep you as far as I can, so it won’t happen again
I’ll be your favorite girl, that way I’ll never get hurt
Keep you as far as I can, so it won’t happen again

I see you’re having trouble smiling
Let me show you something you won’t soon forget
And as I’m staring at the dresser
I’m hoping there’s no evil looming overhead
Cause everything you said
Was always on a bed

I’ll be your favorite girl, that way I’ll never get hurt
Keep you as far as I can, so it won’t happen again
Baby I’ve traveled the world and taught things you’ll never learn
On weekends I’ll be your girl, Monday through Friday you’re dirt
To me
