I should have told him that I needed him
When I had the chance
And now he's left me, and it's all over
Goodbye romance

I should have told him then
Over and over again that I love him

But it was easier to hurt him, ooh
It was easier to hurt him, ooh
It was easier to hurt him
That's what I thought was being so smart

The way I cheated him and mistreated him
How could I forget?
I was so sure that he would always trust in me
Oh, that I'd take a bet, no, no, no

He'd never say goodbye but here all alone am I
He is gone now

'Cause it was easier to hurt him, what could I do?
It was easier to hurt him, I should have known better
It was easier to hurt him
That's what I thought was being so smart, oh, oh

It was easier to hurt him, I need him so bad
It was easier to hurt him, what did I do?
It was easier to hurt him, I should have known better
It was easier to hurt him, I need him so bad
