I knew from the first night I met you
That something just wasn't quite right
You looked like an innocent stranger
But something was just out of sight

How could I know that you'd accuse me
To fill out some plan of your own
If I could have known you'd abuse me
And leave me here hurt and alone

If it wasn't for you I'd be happy
If it wasn't for lies you'd be true
I know that you could be just like you should
If it wasn't for bad you'd be good

I only saw what I wanted to see
You were a dream in my mind
I'll never know how you never could be
It didn't take long for me to find

I guess that it's my fault for seeing
Only what I wanted to see
I couldn't know you were being
A player just acting for me

If it wasn't for you I'd be happy
If it wasn't for lies you'd be true
I know you could be just like you should
If it wasn't for bad you'd be good

I knew from the first night I met you
That something just wasn't quite right
You looked like an innocent stranger
But something was just out of sight

If it wasn't for you I'd be happy
If it wasn't for lies you'd be true
I know you could be just like you should
If it wasn't for bad you'd be good

If it wasn't for bad you'd be good
