Now you told me on a Sunday
That it wasn't gonna work
I tried to cry myself to sleep
'Cause it was supposed to hurt

We sat next to the fire
As the flame was burning out
I knew what you were thinking
Before you'd say it aloud

Don't say you're sorry
'Cause I'm not even breaking
You're not worth the time that this is taking

I knew better
Than to let you break my heart
This soul you'll never see again
Won't be showing scars

You still love her
I can see it in your eyes
The truth is all that I can hear
Everytime you lie
Everytime you lie
Everytime you lie

I woke up the next morning
With a smile on my face
And a long list of gentlemen
Happy to take your place
Less trashier, much classier
Then who you prove to be

How long's it gonna take before
You see that she's no me
Oh no

I knew better
Than to let you break my heart
This soul you'll never see again
Won't be showing scars
Oh no no

You still love her
I can see it in your eyes
The truth is all that I can hear
Everytime you lie

At night, awake
I will be sleeping till morning breaks
That's the price you pay for your mistakes
Goodbye to cheating

So don't say you're sorry
'Cause I'm not gonna listen

I knew better
Than to let you break my heart
This soul you'll never see again
Won't be showing scars
Oh no no

You still love her
I can see it in your eyes
The truth is all that I can hear
Everytime you lie Oh
Everytime you lie

Don't say you're sorry
Everytime you lie
Don't say you're sorry
Oohh

The truth is all that I can hear
Everytime you lie

    This song is about a guy that lied to you your whole realtionship then dumps you and you thought the guy was your whole world and if he dumped you you would die...you sat there and expected to cry, but not a tear came to your eye...this is exactly what happened to me...i miss him so much...

    Well to me it means that dont fall in love with anyone who still has feelings for someone else. And some people won't tell you that they love some else and they string you along,in the end you are the one who gets hurt.
