Monifah – You Should Have Told Me lyrics

I gave you my heart
In the hopes that you might give me yours
But now I'm at the point of losing you
Your laugh and your smile
Made me feel everything was secure
And that no one could love me like you do

1- You should have told me it wasn't forever
Your eyes tell me things that your heart can not say
You should have told me that you were not ready to love
You should have told me that you could not stay with me

Oh I love you

I gave you my trust
Thinking no one could love me so much
And I hate to think that it could never end
The warmth of your touch
Cast up on me a feeling I know
Two people share when they are more then friends

Repeat 1

Is it my loving you that makes you be this way?
I feel like such a fool, you've brought me so much pain
You should have told me something, not lead me to believe
That we'd be together forever and ever

Repeat 1
