Once upon a time a few mistakes ago
I was in your sights, you got me alone
You found me
You found me
You found me-e-e-e-e

I guess you didn't care, and I guess I liked that
And when I fell hard you took a step back

Without me, without me, without me-e-e-e-e

And he's long gone when he's next to me
And I realize the blame is on me

Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I've never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I've never been
Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble

No apologies, he'll never see you cry
Pretends he doesn't know, that he's the reason why
You're drowning
You're drowning
You're drowning


I heard you moved on from whispers on the street
A new notch in your belt is all I'll ever be
And now I see
Now I see
Now I see
Eeee


He was long gone when he met me
And I realize the joke is on me, hey

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I've never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I've never been
Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble

And the saddest fear comes creeping in
That you never loved me
Or her
Or anyone
Or anything

Yeah

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now

Flew me to places I've never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I've never been
Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh
Trouble, trouble, trouble

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble
