I wish I could believe you; then I'll be all right
To the way I feel inside
But now my suspicions of you have multiplied

'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
But I'm much too full of resentment
Just can't seem to get over the way you hurt me
The very thing you gave to me
As much as I wanna trust you, I know it ain't the same

'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
But I'm much too full of resentment
I may never understand why
I tried and I tried to forget this

Like I couldn't do it for you like your mistress could

More than my own life
It was sacrifice

'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
But I'm too damn full of resentment
I know she was attractive, but I was here first
Why did I deserve to be treated this way by you, you?
I been crying for too long; what did you do to me?
I'm crying--can't stop crying, can't stop crying
I know you didn't wanna hurt me
I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she's had half of me
