You were the one
Cause see me and you, we got something strong
But even I can tell when somethings going on
You see my bestfriend and you aint being straight
You two been hanging out while I been working late
And last night when we all went out to the club
Like it wasn't enough
You and him flirting and stuff, No...
That's when he took you aside
His hands all up on your thighs, baby
I see everything clearer now...

[Chorus:]
When I was gonna trip the alarm
Girl, I can see through his charm
So I know when I'm out making dough
He be calling you on the low
Things you don't expect from a friend
And that's what I don't understand
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

He can steal the keys to my range
Credit cards and even my name
But when it comes to you
Girl, it aint the same
Cause it causes too much pain
Thought he could keep it all out of sight
He was like a thief in the night
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

[Verse 2:]
I had enough and now you've forced me
To get a few things off my mind
Cause I can see right through your crying, girl
You must think that I'm blind, Ohh...
And even know I don't want to
I just can't ignore the signs
And if you knew how much it hurts me
I wouldn't try to waste my time

Girl that's when you said (of course I love you)
I don't believe (there's no one but you)
Mmm... Cause I know you've used those words, girl
A million times before

[Chorus:]
When I was gonna trip the alarm
Girl, now I can see through his charm
So I know when I'm out making dough
He be calling you on the low
Things you don't expect from a friend
And that's what I don't understand
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

He can steal the keys to my range
Credit cards and even my name
When it comes to you
Girl, it aint the same
Cause it causes too much pain
Thought he could keep it all out of sight
He was like a thief in the night
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

[Bridge:]
Now I don't know what I'm gonna do, Oh Yeah (don't know what to do)
Never delt with something quite like this before in my life (never delt with something quite like this)
It weren't suppose to be this way
You both disappointed me (dissapointed me)
Knew something was wrong
But it took me so long to see, oh girl
Ooohh....... Yeah

[Chorus x2:]
When I was gonna trip the alarm
Girl, now I can see through his charm
So I know when I'm out making dough
He be calling you on the low
Things you don't expect from a friend
And that's why I don't understand
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

He can steal the keys to my range
Credit cards and even my name
When it comes to you
Girl, it aint the same
Cause it causes too much pain
Thought he could keep it all out of sight
He was like a thief in the night
Cause you know what's up
But he let me down

Oh yeah...
You know what's up, but he let me down...
You know what's up, but he let me down..
