In a perfect world things would have been different;
I wish it could have gone the way I planned,
I put my heart into your hands,
'Cause I thought I could trust you.

I thought I heard you say you'd never leave.
I always stood by your side,
I thought you'd do the same for me (you'd do the same for me).

All the times I said I loved you,
Couldn't you hear my sincerity?
I always listened, you were always first to speak,
I guess I should have listened when this is how they said it would be!

[Chorus]
When did all my friends become my enemies?
All this time I just wanted to believe,
That I found someone who cared enough to see the best in me.
But now I’m back to square one, scared to trust in anything.

I never thought I was above you,
I’m sorry if I made you feel that way.
I'm sorry if I made you thinking what we had was just a game (just a game).

I always tried to do the right thing (right thing).
I always gave more than I would take,
And now I’m staring in the mirror wondering if I’m the one to blame.
And this is how they said it would be!

[Chorus:]
When did all my friends become my enemies?
All this time I just wanted to believe,
That I found someone who cared enough to see the best in me.
But now I’m back to square one and this is how they said it would be!
(I thought I knew you all along)
When did all my friends become my enemies?
Somewhere deep down I still want to believe
(Somebody tell me where I went wrong)
That I found someone who cared enough to see the best in me,
But now I’m back to square one, scared to trust in anything.

I wish you the best my friend,
I pray success doesn't get the best of you in the end
(Best of you in the end).
I hope you know I’ll always be here,
I’d love you even if you chose to turn your back on me again.
No, I guess I should have listened when this is how they said it would be!

[Chorus:]
When did all my friends become my enemies?
And all this time I just wanted to believe,
That I found someone who cared enough to see the best in me.
But now I’m back to square one and this is how they said it would be.

We're so busy taking sides,
We forget to see the souls behind each others eyes.
If love is patient, love is kind,
Then how did we run out of time?

I thought I found someone,
Someone who cared enough
To see the best in me.
But now I’m back to square one, scared to trust in anything.
