Look what you've done.
You thought love was true

After all, I've been good to you. (I've been good to you)

You needed a friend so I took you in and treated you so kind.
And oh, why do you want to make me blue?
(I've been good to you)

And I never, never, never let you down.
You know that you're hurting me so
But there, there come a time
You come back to me on your bending knee and you're gonna be crying.
And oh, believe me, what I say it true, baby.

Whoa, you know, you know,
