When you were mine
I gave you all of my money
Time after time
You done me wrong
'Cause, just like a train
You let all my friends come over and eat
And you were so strange
You didn't have the decency to change the sheets
Oh girl, when you were mine
I use to let you wear all my clothes
You were so fine
Maybe that's the reason that it hurt me so
I know, that you're goin with another guy
But I don't care, 'cause I love you baby that's no lie
Love you more mine than I did when you were mine
When you were mine
You were kindasorta my best friend
So I was blind
I let you fool around
I never cared
I never was the kind to make a fuss
When he was there
Sleepin in between the two of us
I know, that you're goin with another guy
But I don't care, 'cause I love you baby that's no lie
Love you more than I did when you were mine
When you were mine
You were all I ever wanted to do
Now I spend my time
Following him whenever he's with you
I know that you're goin with another guy
But I don't care, 'cause I love you baby that's no lie
Love you more than I did when you were mine
