Lyrics

Well, You Said You Loved Me,
But You Know It Was A Lie;
You Said You Loved Me,
But You Know It Was A Lie.
And That's The Reason,
But It's Not The Only Reason,
I Wanna Cry, Cry, Cry.

You Said You Will Find Me,
But You Know You Never Came, Yeah;
You Told Me You Will Find Me, Pretty Baby,
But You Know You Never Came, Yeah.
Well, The Other Night You Talked In Your Sleep, Baby,
You Called Out Another Mans Name. Yeah.

You Said You Loved Me,
Oh, But You Know It Was A Lie;
You Said You Loved Me,
Wow, But You Know It
