[Intro]
(I asked you a question)
I feel a rise burning in the back of my head
If she could kill me with a look, I'd already be dead
Excited at the thought of possibly two in my bed
I said some shit that I instantly regretted I said
I hid my deception with absolute discretion
Wanted to turn around and give up an accidental confession
I turned to look at her and she's just standin' there
Facial expression says it all, war has been declared

[Verse]
She said, is there anything you wanna tell me?
I'm standin' there with my head down and I'm thinkin'
Oh no, here we go
What the hell was I thinkin'? Man I wish I was drinkin'
So I could blame it on the liquor, why did I paint the picture?
Why did I think it was something that she wouldn't even consider?
Now I'm avoidin' eye contact as if I owe her money
Tryna laugh it off, clearly she don't think it's funny

[Chorus]
And then she stepped to me, comin' so steady
Looked at me like she knew already
I betrayed her trust, it weighs heavy
On my head, and then she said
Why can't I be loved?
Why can't I feel love?
Why am I not worthy of
Oh why can't I feel love?

[Outro]
All she wanted was somethin' real, somethin' true
With tears in her eyes she said, "I believed in you"
I said, "Please don't leave, please don't go away"
She said, "You broke my heart. How could I stay?"
It'd be a year before I'd see integrity again
(Over there, they said he's over there
I see him, there he is
Ne-Yo! Is this dude... what are you doing?
Bruh don't you know you got a show in... 10 minutes from now?
You drinking before... what is you doing?)
Relax, I'm not drunk. Guess who I ran into today
