(song) One by One

by Devon E Mattys

It's all happening again
The same thing that happened with you--
It's happening again
With somebody new

It's happening again
But I've known my past
And though it's happening again,
I've admitted my feelings at last

One by one
the girls go down
One by one
nights on the town
One by one
my friends take leave
One by one
come to cry on my sleeve
One by one
I see them burned
One by one
I await my turn
One by one
tossed aside
One by one
This time I did not hide

But it's going on again
Everyone but me
It's going on again
Idle hands on my knee

Do touches mean nothing?
I'd think that glances meant something
Or smiles and grins
Brushing thighs and shins
Or phone calls late at night...
My feelings safely out of sight

And then we find out too, too late
Both of us were willing, eager to date
And nothing was done
No telephones rung
No love ballads sung
Nothing was begun

One by one
the girls go down
One by one
nights on the town
One by one
the glances shared
One by one
I thought they cared
One by one
I see girls burned
One by one
I await my turn
One by one
tossed aside
One by one
Nothing left to hide

But it's happening again
I've been true and still he doesn't want me
It's happening again
I've made myself a fool for him to see

and

One by one
they turn me down
One by one
nights out of town
One by one
relationships begun
One by one
one... by... one

Author's Note: these are lyrics, which always sound better with the melodies, but you can take them as poetry if you like
