There was a time where I thought I wouldn't be able to fall in love.

I gave my heart a chance and let my soul live and baby I fell all the way.

Shouldn't have let my guard down. Shouldn't have trusted you so.

Shouldn't have let myself fall. Fall in love.

But there wasn't anything I could do. I'd already fallen before I knew that side of you.

Tell me why it had to be like that. Tell me why you had to hurt me like that. I want to know where your mind was, because surly your heart took no part in this.

I took you for a sweetheart. The man of my dreams. The one I had been looking for all along. But baby I must have been mistaken.

I need to find a way to move on. A way to bring myself out of the depths of my misery.

I'm hurting inside and this heartache won't leave me alone. I tried to stop thinking about you, but it's all I can do.

Tell me why it had to be like that. Tell me why you had to hurt me like that. I want to know where your mind was, because surly your heart took no part in this.

Sitting here under the stars I question why I ever believed the sparkle in your eyes meant anything. All I can do now is try to wipe the tears away. I surrendered my heart to you, and all you did was walk away like I never meant a damn thing. Surly you couldn't have been lying when you told me we would be together forever. Or maybe I was just crazy for hanging onto your words.

Tell me why it had to be like that. Tell me why you had to hurt me like that. I want to know where your mind was, because surly your heart took no part in this.

I long for the day when I can simply smile and not feel like a part of me is missing. I know better now not to let my guard down. Cause baby I refuse to be taken for a fool.
