She Used To Be Mine Waitress Lyrics By Jessie Mueller. She is gone, but she used to be mine And it’s not what I asked for Sometimes life just slips in through a back door And carves out a person.
She Used To Be Mine Waitress Lyrics
It’s not simple to sayThat most days, I don’t recognize meThat these shoes, and this apronThat place, and its patronsHave taken more than I gave them
It’s not easy to knowI’m not anything like I used to be, although it’s trueI was never attention’s sweet centerBut I still remember that girl
She’s imperfect, but she triesShe is good, but she liesShe is hard on herselfShe is broken and won’t ask for helpShe is messy, but she’s kindShe is lonely most of the timeShe is all of this mixed up and baked in a beautiful pieShe is gone, but she used to be mine
And it’s not what I asked forSometimes life just slips in through a back doorAnd carves out a personAnd makes you believe it’s all trueAnd now I’ve got youYou’re not what I asked forIf I’m honest, I know I would give it all backFor a chance to start overAnd rewrite an ending or twoFor that girl that I knew
Who was reckless just enoughWho gets hurtBut who learns how to toughen up when she’s bruisedAnd gets used by a man who can’t loveAnd then she’ll get stuckAnd be scared of the life that’s inside herGetting stronger each day‘Til it finally reminds herTo fight just a littleTo bring back the fire in her eyesThat’s been gone, but used to be mineOh, used to be mine
She is messy, but she’s kindShe is lonely most of the timeShe is all of this mixed up and baked in a beautiful pieShe is gone, but she used to be mine
