Michael Jackson – That's What I Get lyrics

Just when everything was making sense.
You took away all my self-confidence.
Now all that I've been hearing must be true.
I guess I'm not the only boy for you.
But that's what I get
That's what I get
That's what I get
That's what I get
How could you turn us into this?
After you just taught me how to kiss you.
I told you I'd never say goodbye.
I'm slipping on the tears you made me cry.
But that's what I get.
That's what I get.
That's what I get.
That's what I get.
For trusting you.
That's what I get.
Why does it come as a surprise.
To think that I was so naive.
Maybe didn't mean too much.
But it meant everything to me.
