I must admit I was crazy
Must have been love drunk
Intoxicated, with your love
But now I look around
Things just ain't the same to me
And I see it now
That you were not for me

I didn't have to do it
But I put all my heart in it
You said you loved me
When you didn't
And you did it a-again
Did it a-again
I didn't have to do it
But I put all my heart in it
You said you loved me
When you didn't
And you did it a-again
Did it a-again

After all that we been through
You still wanna let me down
I keep givin' it to you
You'd think I'd know by now
You would think I'd know better
Just by the way that you get down
You threw my heart like whatever
You would think I'd know by now
See the lies
See the tears that fall from my eyes
Wouldn't you think, wouldn't you think...

First time around
I end up doing
You would tell a lie
And I could not see through it
But I look around
And you just ain't the same to me
And I see now that you're not the one for me

I didn't have to do it
But I put all my heart in it
You said you loved me
When you didn't
And you did it a-again
Did it a-again
I didn't have to do it
But I put all my heart in it
You said you loved me
When you didn't
And you did it a-again
Did it a-again

After all that we been through
You still wanna let me down
I keep givin' it to you
You'd think I'd know by now
You would think I'd know better
Just by the way that you get down
You threw my heart like whatever
You would think I'd know by now

You would think that I would get it
You would think I'd understand
But you must be confused
Why don't you get another hint
But don't worry I'm not stayin'
This is your game, and I'm not playin'
Cause I know you don't really care for me

See the lies
See the tears that fall from my eyes
Wouldn't you think, wouldn't you think...

You'd think I'd know by now
After all that we been through
You still wanna let me down
I keep givin' it to you
You'd think I'd know by now
You would think I'd know better
Just by the way that you get down
You threw my heart like whatever
You would think I'd know by now
