Lyrics
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life

Mama told me, "Don't try"
When I said I was gonna be
The girl who make you realize
One love is all you need
Looked like I was getting over
When my hopes went tumbling over
From a telephone conversation
That hurt as I heard you say
You keep telling her that I was just your friend
As you whispered words of tenderness
And said you'd call again

I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life

I kept a secret from you
Thinking maybe things might change
So I tried just a little bit harder
But the end of love still came
Now your mind is set on leaving
But I find it hard believing
My dreams won't come true
When they build with so much love for you
And everything I did, I did to bring you joy
And if I die today on my grave that say:
"That girl sure love that boy"

I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life

(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
So I dried my eyes
And I walked away alone
And get ready for the emptiness
I feel when love is gone

I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life

Mama said I've been hurt

I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life
