Said you'll neva give away your heart again
I'll be knockin til you let me in
I know you told me, you'd rather be lonely
You don't even know me
That's why I no longer wanna be a stranger

Sorry you put your trust in others and they let you down
And all the secrets an unknown evidence now in the open that you found
Cried yourself to sleep so many nights said you'd never again
I'm not the one you hold it against
Baby it's not my plan

Yeah you independent as hell
And doin it by yourself
But what you gone do when the nightime get cold
I know you told me, you'd rather be lonely
You don't even know me
I ain't moving out the way for nothing, I'm stubborn
Cuz you said you'd never give away your heart again
I'll be knockin til you let me in
I know you told me, you'd rather be lonely
(Tired of being your closest friend)
You don't even know me
That's why I no longer wanna be a stranger

Tell me
What I gotta do (x6)
Yeahh

Your stuck inside no matter how hard you try to forget
Don't you wish there was a button we could reset
And make it easy
But you can't take back the decision that you made to love

Nooo, oh noo

I know it's the one that you regretting, not so proud of,
Because you keep tellin me

Yeah you independent as hell
And doin' it by yourself
But what you gone do when the nightime get cold
I know you told me, you'd rather be lonely
You don't even know me
I ain't moving out the way for nothing, I'm stubborn

Cuz you said you'd never give away your heart again
I'll be knockin til you let me in
I know you told me, you'd rather be lonely
(Tired of being your closest friend, baby)
You don't even know me
That's why I no longer wanna be a stranger

Baby tell me
What I gotta do (x6)

I remember the break up
& the condition that my heart was in
But I would never surrender
No no
I gotta be stronger, there's nothing time can't heal
Girl, I know your scarred
All I ask is a chance to come in and do my part
It's nothing but fear and you've been holding on since
Too under pressure and I see us sinking in

Said you'll neva give away your heart again
I'll be knockin til you let me in
I know you told me, you'd rather be lonely
You don't even know me
That's why I no longer wanna be a stranger

What I gotta do (6x)
