Damsel of Success

Ain’t No Distress Over Here

He lied to me so I went looking for the truth

But then he was a fraud so I searched for something real

Yet he abandoned me so I went looking for something to hold on to

And just about when I’d had enough – that’s when I found you.

See I was ready to call it quits, say fuck this shit and hang my heart up on the shelf

But then I decided to look once more and in the midst of looking for someone to come and save me

I ended up finding myself – a damsel of success.
