Thought you were my sunny day
Thought you were my sunshine in the rain
When everything is cloudy in my life
Didn't know that you were playing a game
Of killing me softly inside
Emotions blinded my from the light
I put it past you every time
That you would ever decide to break your promise
You played yourself Boy

You said you were forever down
You said you were down for yourself
You didn't get my back even though you were wrong
Forgetting what you meant to me
Forgetting what we've been together
What went around will come around before long
I put it past you every time
That you might be inclined to break your word
But you played yourself Boy

You tried to play me and leave me lonely
You went out and cheated on me
I thought that you were down with me
Down with me
You said I was your one and only
Together exclusively
I thought that you were down with me
Down with me

You thought you played me but you only played yourself
When you left me till your down with someone else
I thought that you were down with me
You thought you played me
Down with me

I put it past you every time
That you would ever leave my side
But you went and broke your word (yes you did)
And played yourself (it's over)
