LYRICS

I wish I could believe him
Ooh, yeah

I wish I could believe you, then I’d be alright
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

I may never understand why
I’m doing the best that I can
But I, just can’t seem to get over
The way you hurt me
Don’t know why you gave another
Who didn’t mean a thing, no
The very thing you gave to me

I thought I could forgive you
I know you’ve changed
As much as I wanna trust you
Oh it ain’t the same, no
As before this woman came

I loved you more than ever
More than my own life
The best part of me I gave you
It was sacrifice (yeah)
When you broke your word that night

I only gave you a hard time
Cause I can’t go on and pretend… like
I don’t remember feeling like I was no good
Like I couldn’t do it for you
Like your mistress could, no

I know she was attractive
But I was here first
Been riding with you for five years
Why did I deserve to be treated this way by you
I know you’re probably thinkin what’s up with me?
This sounds like a 50’s record
That’s alright with me, (ohh, yeah), yeah
Oooh, woo, no, no
