I never meant
To lie to you
But I needed me
An easy way out

I couldn't face
The truth with you
Because I didn't want
To lose my clout

I always have been
Good to you, girl
I promise you that
Nothing has changed

Momentary insanity
Must be the reason
Why I did you that way, babe

So, now I'm telling everybody
That I, that I know I was a fool
To take a chance of ever losing
And I can't take losing you

[CHORUS]
So, I'm never keeping secrets
And I'm never telling lies
I wanna make it up to you
No, I'm never keeping secrets, girl
I swear it's all behind
I only wanna be with you

[Repeat CHORUS]

I didn't want to lie to you
But I didn't want
To let you down
It never did occur to me
Sooner or later that you
Would find out

You know how much
I care for you and
I would never want
To cause you pain

I know that
There is no excuse
How could I ever
Treat my baby that way

That's why I'm telling everybody
That I, that I know I was a fool
But I don't give a damn about it
Cause I wanna get back with you

[Repeat CHORUS 2x]

If you wanna go
I want you to know, girl
That I understand it
But I don't recommend it
Cause I love you more

You can't ignore that
I would die for you
Even lay down my
Life for you, girl

Girl, I wanna see you
Standing next to me
Girl, I apologize
For each and every lie

I want you to be
The only one for me
Forever and ever and
Ever and ever and ever

[Repeat CHORUS 4x to fade]
