Resentment
by Beyoncé



I wish I could believe you
Then I'll 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

[chorus:]
I only give you hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I haven't tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment

Just can't seem to get over
The way you hurt me
Don't know how you gave another
What didn't mean a thing
The very thing you gave to me
I thought I could forgive you
And I know you've change
As much as I wanna trust you
I know it a'int the same
And it's all it's all because you lied

[chorus:]
I only give you hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I haven't tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment
I may never understand why
I'm doing the best that I can and I
I tried and I tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment

I'll always remember feeling'
Like I was no good
Like I couldn't do it for you
like your mistress could
And it's all because you lied.

Loved you more than ever
More than my own life
Best part of me I gave you
It was sacrifice
And it's all because you lied

[chorus:]
I only give you hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I tried and tried to forget this
(I tried and I tired and I tired)
But I'm too damn much too full of resentment

I know she was attractive
But I was here first
Been riding' with you for 6 years
Why did I deserve
To be treated this way by you (you)

I know your probably thinking'
What's up with B
I been crying' for too long
What did you do to me
I used to be so strong
Now you took my soul

I'm crying'
Can't stop crying'
Can't stop crying'
You could've told me
You wasn't happy
I know you didn't wanna hurt me
But look what you done done to me now
I gotta look at her in her eyes
And see she's half of me (You lied)
How could you lie (You lied)
