Lyrics
Standing back I can't believe how you've led me on
And judging by the things you say
There's gotta be something wrong

What you telling me that for you don't mean it
What you telling me that for I don't believe it
Your promises have never been anything you made them seem
So what you gonna promise me this time
You're telling lies so plain to see, you're trying to make a fool of me
So what you gonna promise me this time
I wanna know

Seems that I've been playing your game
And how you think you've won
But when you count up what you've gained you're the lonely one

What you telling me that for you don't mean it
What you telling me that for I don't believe it
Your promises have never been anything you made them seem
So what you gonna promise me this time
You're telling lies so plain to see, you're trying to make a fool of me
So what you gonna promise me this time
I wanna know

What you telling me that for you don't mean it
What you telling me that for I don't believe it
Your promises have never been anything you made them seem
So what you gonna promise me this time
You're telling lies so plain to see, you're trying to make a fool of me
So what you gonna promise me this time
I wanna know

I'll never know
What you telling me for
