The Aces – Cruel


I think back to when you were mine
I think about you, oh
I think about you
Even with someone new by my side
I think about you
I still think about you

Out with friends, I see your face
You start to pull me in
Say you’re in a better place
I start to let you in

Why’d I have to love something bad?
Can’t you go and hurt someone new?
Why protect myself to give it all back?
How am I back to square one with you?
Oh, I’ve lost myself
In a vicious hell
Of thinking you’ll change
When I know that you never do
Why’d I have to go back to you?
Why’d I have to fall for someone cruel?

I tell myself that it’ll work this time
And I believe it, oh, I believe it
The only one who can’t detect your lies
I believe ’em, oh, I believe ’em

Out with her now, changed your mind
And everyone can see
You’re trying to run, but you can’t hide
That she looks just like me
(You know she does)

Why’d I have to love something bad?
Can’t you go and hurt someone new?
Why protect myself to give it all back?
How am I back to square one with you?
Oh, I’ve lost myself
In a vicious hell
Of thinking you’ll change
When I know that you never do
Why’d I have to go back to you?
Why’d I have to fall for someone cruel?

I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know
That I’m gonna be just fine
I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know
That you have no place in my life

Why’d I have to love something bad?
Can’t you go and hurt someone new?
Why protect myself to give it all back?
How am I back to square one with you?
Oh, I’ve lost myself
In a vicious hell
Of thinking you’ll change
When I know that you never do
Why’d I have to go back to you?
Why’d I have to fall for someone cruel?
