How Do You Like Me Now
(To the tune of "How Do You Like Me Now " by Toby Keith)

by Aimée

I was always the soul-less one,
And I killed the Anointed One,
And I was "big bad" for a really long time.

He was always the perfect one,
And the Master loved him like a son,
Til he got his soul and he fed for the last time.

I only wanted to love you like he did,
But you went for Riley somehow,
Besides you had too many problems with demons,
And I overstepped my bounds.

How do you like me now?

How do you like me now?
Now that I have my soul?
You still think I'm evil,
Stakin' me is your goal,
I can love you safely,
My soul can't leave me now,
I can be all you wanted,
How do you like me now?

When I took off to get restored,
I thought I knew what I asked for,
But those silly demons sometimes misunderstand.

Your first love was the kind that burned,
You made love and then Angel turned,
But I am the one who'll give you all that I can.

The vamp and the soldier,
Found others to hold to,
But you keep your arms at your side,
So won't you believe me,
When I say I'm sorry,
I'll try not make you cry.

How do you like me now?

How do you like me now?
Now that I have my soul?
You still think I'm evil,
Stakin' me is your goal,
I can love you safely,
My soul can't leave me now,
I can be all you wanted,
How do you like me now?
