One Direction – Taken lyrics

Now that you can't have me, you suddenly want me
Now that I'm with somebody else you tell me you love me
I slept on your doorstep, begging for one chance
Now that I finally moved on, you say that you missed me all along

Who do you think you are?
Who do you think I am?
You only loved to see me breaking
You only want me cause I'm taken
You don't really want my heart
No, you just like to know you can
You'll still be the one who gets it breaking
You only want me when I'm taken

You're messing with my head, girl that's what you do best
Saying there's nothing you won't do, to get me to say yes
You're impossible to resist, but I wouldn't bet your heart on it
It's like I'm finally awake, nd you're just a beautiful mistake

Who do you think you are?
Who do you think I am?
You only loved to see me breaking
You only want me cause I'm taken
You don't really want my heart
No, you just like to know you can
You'll still be the one who gets it breaking
You only want me when I'm taken

Thank you for showing me, who you are underneath, no
Thank you but I don't need, another heartless misery
You think I'm doing this to make you jealous
And I know that you hate to hear this
But this is not about you anymore

Who do you think you are?
Who do you think I am?
You only loved to see me breaking
You only want me cause I'm taken
You don't really want my heart
No, you just like to know you can
You'll still be the one who gets it breaking
You only want me when I'm taken

Now that you can't have me, you suddenly want me

    There was probably a girl he once been in love with before and tried to do anything to have her but she ignored him and showed no interest. He finally moves on and finds himself happy with another girl, the first girl gets jealous that the attention isn't on her anymore and tells him she wants him back. By now it's a little too late and he realizes that she was never worth it.
