Being Lied To

Every, step that I take
To you it’s another mistake
Tell me, what did I do
Did I, ever hurt you

It’s not that I still like you
It’s not that I can’t move on
It’s not that you’re on my mind all the time
Or that I want my life to be done
It’s that I know your excuse
For breaking up me and you
Was all wrong

Just the day before
Everything was normal but not anymore
Why won’t you just tell me
Or is that not even a possibility

It’s not that I still like you
It’s not that I can’t move on
It’s not that you’re on my mind all the time
Or that I want my life to be done
It’s that I know your excuse
For breaking up me and you
Was all wrong

The worst part about being lied to is knowing you’re not worth the truth
Don’t tell me that you didn’t because I know, baby I got proof
Is it because you listened to, the lies they told you
You saying we could still be friends, was all just pretend

It’s not that I still like you
It’s not that I can’t move on
It’s not that you’re on my mind all the time
Or that I want my life to be done
It’s that I know your excuse
For breaking up me and you
Was all wrong

Please don’t leave me like this
Sitting here clueless
I miss you just being my friend
I don’t understand why that had to end

It’s not that I still like you
It’s not that I can’t move on
It’s not that you’re on my mind all the time
Or that I want my life to be done
It’s that I know your excuse
For breaking up me and you
Was all wrong
