I cried so hard
You know I can't do more
It's a turn of the card
It's a close of the door
The lies you told
You know they hurt so deep
So I go home and cry myself to sleep

Day after day
You been treatin' me bad
My friends'll come up and say
Why do you take all of that?
And it's makin' me moan
And it's makin' me weep
So I go home and cry myself to sleep

You play at love like a child plays games
One day I'm in and then I'm out again
You change the rules
I can't win
You've broken me, now, so I'll give in

You play at love like a child plays games
One day I'm in and then I'm out again
You change the rules
I can't win
You've broken me, now, so I'll give in

Well, I've been through worse
But I don't know what
Joy is just the reverse
Of what I've got
So take this heart
Or what's left to keep
And I go home and cry myself to sleep
I just go home and cry myself to sleep
I go home and cry myself to sleep
