You were the one
Me and you, we got something strong
But even I can tell when somethings going on
You see my best friend and you ain't being straight
You two been hanging out while I been working late
And last night when we all went out to the club
Like it wasn't enough
You and him flirting and stuff, no
That's when he took you aside
His hand all up on your thighs, baby
I see everything clearer now

When I was gonna trip the alarm
Girl, I can see through his charm
So I know when I'm out making dough
He be calling you on the low
Things you don't expect from a friend
And that's why I don't understand
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

Nigga steal the keys to my range
Credit cards in need for my name 
When it comes to you 
Girl, it ain't the same
Cause it causes too much pain
Thought he could keep it all out of site
He was like a thief in the night
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

I had enough and now ?
To get a few things off my mind
Cause I can see right through your crying, girl
You must think that I'm blind, oh
And even know I don't want to
I just can't ignore the signs
And If you knew how much it hurts me
I wouldn't try to waste my time

Girl that's when you said (because I love you)
I don't believe (there's no one but you)
Mm, cause I know you've used those words, girl
A million times before

When I was gonna trip the alarm
Girl, now I can see through his charm
So I know when I'm out making dough
He be calling you on the low
Things you don't expect from a friend
And that's why I don't understand
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

Nigga steal the keys to my range
Credit cards in need for my name 
When it comes to you 
Girl, it ain't the same
Cause it causes too much pain
Thought he could keep it all out of site
He was like a thief in the night
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

Now I don't know what I'm gonna do, Oh Yeah (don't know what to do)
Never delt with something quite like this before in my life 
(never dealt with something quite like this)
It weren't suppose to be this way
You both disappointed me (disappointed me)
Knew something was wrong
But it took me so long to see, girl
Oh, yeah

[Repeat: x2]
When I was gonna trip the alarm
Girl, now I can see through his charm
So I know when I'm out making dough
He be calling you on the low
Things you don't expect from a friend
And that's why I don't understand
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

Nigga steal the keys to my range
Credit cards in need for my name 
When it comes to you 
Girl, it ain't the same
Cause it causes too much pain
Thought he could keep it all out of site
He was like a thief in the night
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

Oh yeah
You know what's up, but he let me down
You know what's up, but he let me down
