Jim Cosgrove – You Weren't There lyrics

Stop!
You tell me you forgot your plans with me
And that's the tenth time I heard that excuse
But I know what you're doing behind the scenes
You think can get away so easily

You didn't cheer me on
I never got your support
The only thing you do is hang out with me
And when I call you, you never call me back
I have to do it by e-mail

But you weren't there
You never were
I wanted it all
But you ruined it
And that's not fair
I gave my all
Who do you think you are
Trying to put me 5 steps back?
You let me fall
I never did anything like that to you
You weren't there
You weren't there

(Beware of the dog)
He's gonna get you
He's gonna get you
(Beware of the dog)
He will bite you
Once you never fulfill a promise
(Beware of the dog)
You'll regret it later
When things seem so wrong
(Beware of the dog)
(Beware of the dog)

You think this is a game don't you?
You're never gonna go back in time
Fix what was wrong
And do what I said
I asked for the simple things you could've done
Instead, you bringed it down on yourself
You let yourself fall
What's worse, I'm never getting back with you

But you weren't there (You weren't there)
You never were
I wanted it all
But you ruined it (Satisfaction)
And that's not fair (An instant attraction)
I gave my all (Between the both of us)
Who do you think you are
Trying to put me 5 steps back? (Oooohoh woooahhh ohhooohh, yeah)
You let me fall
I never did anything like that to you (Can't you see)
You weren't there
You weren't there (You never were)

(Beware of the dog) (Kill the lights)
He's gonna get you
He's gonna get you
(Beware of the dog) (Kill the lights)
He will bite you
Once you never fulfill a promise (C'mon now)
(Beware of the dog) (Kill the lights, oh)
You'll regret it later
When things seem so wrong (C'mon now)
(Beware of the dog)
(Beware of the dog)

I'm staying moving around solo
Gonna let you figure what you did wrong
You'll have all the time in the world
Cause I'm never gonna get back with you

But here's a hint though
I hope you remember
When I said this:

Stop!
You tell me you forgot your plans with me
And that's the tenth time I heard that excuse
But I know what you're doing behind the scenes
You think can get away so easily

Get it now?
I hope you do
Cause if you don't then...
You'll just waste your time
Solving the mystery
Hahahahaha
Yeah

But you weren't there
You never were (You never were there for me)
I wanted it all (Why is it so hard to see)
But you ruined it
And that's not fair (I gave it my all, oh)
I gave my all
Who do you think you are (I say)
Trying to put me 5 steps back?
You let me fall (You let me fall so low)
I never did anything like that to you (I wouldn't do anything to hurt you)
You weren't there (But you weren't there)
You weren't there (You never were)

(Beware of the dog) (Kill the lights)
He's gonna get you (C'mon now)
He's gonna get you
(Beware of the dog) (Kill the lights, yeah)
He will bite you (You)
Once you never fulfill a promise
(Beware of the dog) (Oh, you'd better stay so low)
You'll regret it later
When things seem so wrong (C'mon)
(Beware of the dog) (You had better)
(Beware of the dog) (You weren't there for me)

Who do you think you are?
