Glenn Frey – He Took Advantage lyrics

I should have known from the start
He'd find a way to your heart
He said that he was a friend
That was a lie in the end
He told you I was untrue

Then took advantage of you

He looked you right in the eyes
And told those beautiful lies
The way he made you feel
You thought his love was real
He was too good to be true

He took advantage of you

It's a lowdown dirty shame he doesn't have to pay
For being so deceitful and treating us this way
He used us and betrayed us and made it seem alright
And he turned his back on everyone
I don't know how he sleeps at night, yeah

And now he's walking away
He doesn't care what we say
We weren't too hard to deceive
We wanted so to believe
He was too good to be true

He took advantage of you

Advantage of you
He took advantage of you

    Beautiful, charismatic, and skillful in convincing even those most untrusting in nature that he (or she) is genuine. Time eventually makes this person easily recognizable, but the first insight into his or her true self serving nature comes to the one who realizes that they're about to lose their entire world to someone with more mesmerizing power than their own love and devotion is able to compete with. The second insight comes later, to that one who learns too late that beauty and charisma was (unfortunately) a very foolish trade for genuine love, as it has moved on to someone much more beautiful and/or useful and left him or her very much alone.
