Hey [x14]

Listen, babe, I think it's time for me to come clean
I mean, I haven't been the most faithful
And I don't know how else to say this plain and simple
I been cheatin'
Believe me, this isn't easy
Especially since you've been so good to me
THe hardest thing I've ever done is telling you you're not the only one
Just understand this, you made a man out of ignorance
And like a boy I toyed with innocence
This double life's not worth living
Not giving more to her and I apologise

And it's all part of the game
It's just the same old thing with a different name
And we can try and drown the pain
But we both swim too well to submerge ourselves
And I'm tired of the shame
Of being the fool too cool to maintain two dames
And all I need is time
Please forgive me, darling
The blame's all mine

When I come home to you with open arms
Insit on pressing on my overcoat
The alcohol and stale cigarette smoke
I know you've been skeptical
I play it off like you're delusional
The fact is that I'm losing you
And I'm scared she doesn't want me the way I need her to
No, she doesn't want me the way I need her to
I'm pleading with the judge on my knees
God, please, just make these charges go away

And it's all part of the game
It's just the same old thing with a different name
And we can try and drown the pain
But we both swim too well to submerge ourselves
And I'm tired of the shame
Of being the fool too cool to maintain two dames
And all I need is time
Please forgive me, darling
The blame's all mine

Girl, I promise, I'll do my best to impress the jury
'Cause when the smoke settles, and one of us falls to the dirt
It was worth all of the hurt
And if not, let's cut our losses
'Cause you crossed the line
Thinking I'd choose you over music, that's just stupid
This whole situation's bogus
Especially since I'm so focused
From the beginning to the end
And we're in with these friends
Unfortunately, this is hopeless
Did my best to juggle both of you
Struggled but I'm still here holding you
Tie the man up, stand up, put your hands up
If you understand what I'm going through

And it's all part of the game
It's just the same old thing with a different name
And we can try and drown the pain
But we both swim too well to submerge ourselves
And I'm tired of the shame
Of being the fool too cool to maintain two dames
And all I need is time
Please forgive me, darling
The blame's all mine
