I thought I'd found the man of my dreams
Now it seems, this is how the story ends
He's going to turn me down and say
Can't we be friends

I thought for once it couldn't go wrong
Not for long, I can see the way this ends
Never again, through with love

Through with men
They play their game without shame 
And who's to blame

I thought I'd found a man I could trust
What a bust! this is how the story ends
He's going to turn me down and say
Can't we be friends
