Lyrics

Verse

So you heard her say she loves me

(I thought you'd understand) that I was once her man

It's (got nothing to do with me and you)

Then you heard her say she needs me

(You have to realize) we've been through this a thousand times

My future with you's what's on my mind

We've talked about (all the things that's been said)

I thought I squashed (all the thoughts that you dread)

She broke my heart in two and I hoped that it would be mended by you

(But what I'm getting is not what I was expecting)

So why should I try, try

 

Chorus

I think that I’ll go out of my mind

To deal with this thing one more time

You (think) I'm gonna (lie), then (why should I try) and why should I try

(Think) (lie) oh-ohh (why should I try) to be good to you

(Think, lie) think I'm gonna lie (why should I try) why should I try...

 

Verse

When I tell you that I'm faithful

(Why can't you just believe), baby it's been a while

It's (so darned hard to get you to smile)

When work is busy and I'm (not home till late at night)

You think something's just not right, and this (mistrust) is blowing my mind

You check my neck (as if something's there)

When you wore my coat (said you'd found a hair)

It's not my fault that he did you wrong

And you never managed to move on

(From how he hurt you) I swore (I won't desert you)

Now why would I try, would I try, whoo

You'd (think that I'd go out of my mind)

To (deal with this thing one more time)

You (think) I'm gonna (lie), then (why should I try) should I try yeah, yeah

(Think) (lie) think I'm gonna lie (why should I try) why should I try

 

Change

So I'm gonna find somebody

Who knows how to treat someone

Who knows that we're worth much more

Than one night of having fun

From where we both are standing

Decision is right at hand

You think I'm inclined to cheat

After all I'm just a man

 

Chorus

(Why should I, should I) Wasn't I good to you?

(Why should I, should I) Remarkably faithful too

(Why should I, should I) Looking the other way

(Why should I, should I) You gon’ drive me away

(Why should I, should I) Wasn't I good to you?

(Why should I, should I) Remarkably faithful too

(Why should I, should I) Looking the other way, yeah yeah

(Why should I, should I) You gon’ drive me away
