Build Me Up Buttercup

Lyrics

Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
full lyrics
Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still

My go to happy song, ironically
My job is to build you up, its not a job really..more like a hobby that I love. ;)
My biggest regrets are not being there for you when you most need me and letting you down. Most especially when you just need to hear a voice or read a text message of comfort.
Hey! Hey ! Hey!
Good song
