How long have you known 
You were going to cut me loose?
How long have you been seeing her?
Did she come on to you?

Last night you laid beside me
Put your arms around me tight
Were you just pretending
Things between us were all right?

When were you going to tell me?
What were you waiting for?
Did she make you happier
Were you wanting something more?

Were you bored or just unsatisfied
Was I simply not enough?
There was never any warning
I thought we were in love.

One more night together
This is so hard to believe.
Never thought that you would hurt me
Never thought that you would leave.
