I made you think you don't understand 
I used to think that happiness could only be something That happened to somebody else Everybody believed, everybody but me, yeah, yeah
And I've been hurt so many times before
That my hopes was dying; so sick of trying Everybody could see, everybody but me, yeah, yeah
But then you came into my life; you opened up my softer side
And now I can see into your eyes
And suddenly, I realize 
I made you think you don't understand All the times you didn't understand Why you couldn't just be my man
I made you think you don't understand There were many walls you had to climb If you really wanted to be mine
I made you think you don't understand After all the hoops I put you through Now I see that I'm in love with you

Now I hope you finally understand

So many tears I've had to cry
But you had many more of your own you had to try
But you stuck it out, and you're here with me now, yeah, yeah
And rememberin' the days I pushed away your love
You called my bluff, and you still stayed around Yeah, you figured me out
Said, you got me down
And there's no way to lie to you
You know me better than I do

Baby, oh, you see me through I'd be no good without you

I made you think you don't understand All the times you didn't understand Why you couldn't just be my man
I made you think you don't understand There were many walls you had to climb If you really wanted to be mine
I made you think you don't understand After all the hoops I put you through Now I see that I'm in love with you

Now I hope you finally understand

Oh

Baby, won't you listen now?
Can't you see just what I'm talking about?
Said, baby, won't you listen now?
Can't you see just what I'm talking about?

Time went on, and I was wrong To keep my distance for so long
So afraid you wouldn't stay
But you never turned away
 Always right by my side
You're forever in my life
Don't you go
'Cause now I know
That in you I found a home

Now I can see into your eyes
Suddenly, I realize 
I made you think you don't understand All the times you didn't understand Why you couldn't just be my man
I made you think you don't understand There were many walls you had to climb If you really wanted to be mine
I made you think you don't understand After all the hoops I put you through Now I see that I'm in love with you

Now I hope you finally understand

I made you think you don't understand
