I wish I could believe you; then I'll be all right But now everything you told me really don't apply To the way I feel inside Loving you was easy once upon a time But now my suspicions of you have multiplied And it's all because you lied
[Chorus] I only give you a hard time 'Cause I can't go on and pretend like I haven't tried to forget this But I'm much too full of resentment
Just can't seem to get over the way you hurt me Don't know how you gave another who didn't mean a thing The very thing you gave to me I thought I could forgive you, and I know you've changed As much as I wanna trust you, I know it ain't the same And it's all because you lied
I may never understand why I'm doing the best that I can, and I I tried and I tried to forget this But I'm much too full of resentment
I'll always remember feeling like I was no good Like I couldn't do it for you like your mistress could And it's all because you lied
Loved you more than ever More than my own life The best part of me I gave you It was sacrifice And it's all because you lied
I only give you a hard time 'Cause I can't go on and pretend like I tried and I tried to forget this But I'm too damn full of resentment
I know she was attractive, but I was here first Been ridin' with you for six years Why did I deserve to be treated this way by you, you? I know you're probably thinking "what's up with B?" I been crying for too long; what did you do to me? I used to be so strong, but now you took my soul I'm crying--can't stop crying, can't stop crying You could have told me that you wasn't happy I know you didn't wanna hurt me But look what you done to me now I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she's had half of me How could you lie?
