I could have been easier on you,
I could have been all you held on to.
I know I wasn't fair, I tried my best to care
About you (About you).

I know I could have been a better man,
But always had to have the upper hand.
I'm struggling to see the better side of me,
But I can't take all your jabs and taunts.
You're pointing out my every fault,
And you wonder why I walked away.

[Chorus:]
When you tell me I'm a wreck, you say that I'm a mess,
How could you expect anything less? (Expect anything less)
You latched onto me then cried I strung you along.
I told you when you asked I knew this wouldn't last,
At least I could be honest about that (Honest about that).
And now you're tellin' everyone how I only did you wrong.

I guess you never knew me at all!

Remember on my 21st birthday?
You took me where we went on our first date.
We stayed till closing time after four glasses of wine.
You started with the pointless argument,
You said that I forgot to compliment,
The dress you wore that night,
That I've seen a thousand times.

But I think we just want different things,
I want space, you want a diamond ring.
What ever made you think we were meant to be?

[Chorus:]
When you tell me I'm a wreck, you say that I'm a mess,
How could you expect anything less? (Expect anything less)
You latched onto me then cried I strung you along.
I told you when you asked I knew this wouldn't last,
At least I could be honest about that (Honest about that).
And now you're tellin' everyone how I only did you wrong
(How I only did you wrong).

I guess you never knew me at all!

You tell me I'm a wreck, you say that I'm a mess,
How could you expect anything less?

[Chorus:]
When you tell me I'm a wreck, you say that I'm a mess,
How could you expect anything less? (Expect anything less)
You latched onto me then cried I strung you along
(Cried I strung you along).
I told you when you asked I knew this wouldn't last,
At least I could be honest about that (Honest about that).
And now you're tellin' everyone how I only did you wrong.
(How I only did you wrong)

Still I see you standing there waiting round for me to fall
(Waiting round for me to fall).
Girl you must be crazy still believing you and me belong.
I guess you never knew me at all!

    Well the girl is still like in love with him but he doesn't understand how relationships and if so true love works, because when you find that right someone you will relize they were worth all the fights and everything because in the morning everything will be okay. But yet he could have done so many things that hurt her to in this song you only know half of the tory not the only story. And if you knew this wasnt going too last than why be in a relationship with the person? Because than that will just bury a hole for yourself, this song hass so much meaning but you got think about what overall how you take everyone's vies are different.
