lyrics

I used to think we were close, I used to think we were tight
Just when I needed you most, you made me feel alright
You told me I was the best, you told me I made you laugh
And now I’ve got to confess, you’ve got me torn up in half
Cause when I gave you a shot, you told me you’d rather not

I don’t know what I did wrong, I thought we had something good
We both were getting along, maybe I misunderstood
Maybe you’re just being sweet, maybe you do this a lot
Talk up the people you meet, give them the best that you got
Just like it’s nothing at all, still I’m the one that you call

Why do you play with my heart? You know I’m falling apart
One minute I’m all you want, the next you’re already gone
Why do you play with my soul? You know I’m losing control
If you would just stay with me, I’d give you all that you need

You’ve had me going for months, you’ve had me all in my head
Asking what I should have done, if it was something I said
Was I too eager to love? Should I have just took it slow?
If I was patient enough, would our relationship grow?
Would I still stand half a chance, or do you have other plans?

I ought to just take a “no” and look for somebody new
I’ve got a lifetime to go, I shouldn’t cry over you
But now it’s so hard to tell if my connections are real
Have I been foolin’ myself, I haven’t known how to feel
Since I thought you were the one, oh baby what have you done?

Why do you play with my heart? You know I’m falling apart
One minute I’m all you want, the next you’re already gone
Why do you play with my soul? You know I’m losing control
If you would just stay with me, I’d give you all that you need

I thought the signals were right, now I don’t know what they mean
I’m always stuck at the light, can’t tell the red from the green
Have you been changing your mind? Has it been up in the air?
Or am I simply too blind to see you don’t even care?
I know I’m not being fair, you didn’t mean to do wrong
I should get out of your hair, I should be moving along
We ought to just let it be, so why are you calling me?

Why do you play with my heart? You know I’m falling apart
One minute I’m all you want, the next you’re already gone
Why do you play with my soul? You know I’m losing control
If you would just stay with me, I’d give you all that you need
Why do you play with my heart? You know I’m falling apart
One minute I’m all you want, the next you’re already gone
Why do you play with my soul? You know I’m losing control
If you would just stay with me, I’d give you all that you need
