If you, if you could return, don't let it burn, don't let it fade.

I'm sure I'm not being rude, but it's just your attitude,
It's tearing me apart, It's ruining everything.

I swore, I swore I would be true, and honey, so did you.
So why were you holding her hand? Is that the way we stand?
Were you lying all the time? Was it just a game to you?

But I'm in so deep. You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

Oh, I thought the world of you.
I thought nothing could go wrong,
But I was wrong. I was wrong.
If you, if you could get by, trying not to lie,
Things wouldn't be so confused and I wouldn't feel so used,
But you always really knew, I just wanna be with you.

But I'm in so deep. You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

And I'm in so deep. You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

    To me, this song was about a guy i fell for.. And he would not admit he felt the same for me.. Even though i knew he did... And i kept telling myself did he have to let it linger, just tell me the truth!!
    The part about holding her hand doesnt come into my meaning.. But i was such a fool for him... I still am.. And i know deep down, so is he.

    Amen sc4rh34rt. I so love the movie. Especially that Adam Sandler was the lead cast. A very good movie that talks about being careful on what you wish for because you just might get it and realize that it is not really what you need.

    Forever and ever, babe.

    Adam : Would you still love me in the morning?
    Kate: Forever and ever babe.
