I wish I could believe you then I’ll be alright
But now everything you told me really don’t apply
To the way I feel inside
Loving you was easy once upon a time
But now my suspicions of you have multiplyed
And it's all because you lied

Chorus:
I only give you a hard time
Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I haven’t tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment

Just can’t seem to get over the way you hurt me
Don’t know how you gave another who didn’t mean a thing,the very thing you gave to me I thought I could forgive you and I know you've changed
As much as I wanna trust you I know it ain’t the same
And it's all because you lied

Chorus:
I only give you a hard time
Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I haven’t tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment!!

I may never understand why
I’m doing the best that I can and I
I tried and I tried to forget this but
I’m much too full of resentment

I'll always remember feeling like I was no good
Like I couldn’t do it for you like your mistress could
And it's all because you lied

Bridge:
Loved you more than ever
More than my own life
The best part of me I gave you
I made a sacrifice
And it's all because you lied

Chorus:
I only give you a hard time
Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I tried and I tried to forget this but
But I'm too damn full of resentment

I know she was attractive but I was here first
Been ridin’ with you for six years why did I deserve
To be treated this way by you, you
I know your probably thinking what’s up with Bee
I been crying for too long what did you do to me
I used to be so strong but now you took my soul
I'm crying can't stop crying can't stop crying
You could of told me that you wasn’t happy
I know you didn’t wanna hurt me
But look what you done did to me now
I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she's had half of me
How could you lie
