Some think that they deserve more
Give a little like it's become a chore
Don't demand things
And walk yourself out the door

I fell flat on my face too many times
Left with nothing but some cheap perfume
Now you cry, now you need me
Now that perfume's not cheap
But I told you...

If you wanted to be my only one
If you wanted to see this happen
Maybe you, you should've tried harder
If you thought I would leap into your arms everytime I would see your face
Then maybe you, you should've tried harder

Go on, prove it, I'd love to see you try
Convince me that you gave me the world
I tried and tried but you never opened your eyes
You stand tall like you've won some kind of award
But really I've never seen someone so short look taller
If you gave me some more
But I told you...

If you wanted to be my only one
If you wanted to see this happen
Maybe you, you should've tried harder
If you thought I would leap into your arms everytime I would see your face
Then maybe you, you should've tried harder

Some think that they deserve more
Give a little bit

If you wanted to be my only one
If you wanted to see this happen
Maybe you, you should've tried harder
If you thought I would leap into your arms everytime I would see your face
Then maybe you should've tried harder.

    hmm.. i guess the girl wanted the boy to show her "more" love she ever had before.. but the guy didn't do "much" so he ended up broken hearted... maybe that's why she said "should've tried harder" well that's my opinion.. [:
