Tried to make the best of a bad situation
But I ended up deeper than I wanted to
I was thinkin’, didn’t wanna waste attraction
Couldn’t hurt to get in a little trouble with you
I soon found out I was in over my head
Got more drama and baggage than I had thought I would
And every doubt that I had about us
Was all up in my head, finally I understood

You knew just what you were doin’
And I put all kinds of faith in you
You knew who it was you were foolin’
While I was tryin’ to play it cool
You turned me into a victim
Made me feel like a fool
How dare you give me this feeling
Like I’ll never get over you

Can’t believe I tried to work it out
You weren’t even worth it
You don’t deserve it
Can’t believe I tried to figure out
What you were thinkin’
I didn’t need it

Every time my friends would tell me just to leave
I’d make up another sad excuse to stay
I’d say, “there’s no way I’d fall for this player”
“He’s just a little fun I’ll have along the way”
Didn’t wanna admit to my friends or myself
I was the hopeless case I had become
I knew someday it’d turn around on me
I’d get hurt ’cause I thought I was havin’ fun

You knew just what you were doin’
And I put all kinds of faith in you
You knew who it was you were foolin’
While I was tryin’ to play it cool
You turned me into a victim
Made me feel like a fool
How dare you give me this feeling
Like I’ll never get over you

Can’t believe I tried to work it out
You weren’t even worth it
You don’t deserve it
Can’t believe I tried to figure out
What you were thinkin’
I didn’t need it

Didn’t used to have regrets, make mistakes
Be afraid of getting hurt this bad ’til I met you
Didn’t used to fall in love, play these games
Go and hurt people that didn’t deserve to be
Didn’t used to play the part of a girl
Who was so out of touch, she couldn’t even act right
Didn’t used to be someone I couldn’t recognize
After all you put me through, can’t believe I tried to

Can’t believe I tried to work it out
You weren’t even worth it
You don’t deserve it
Can’t believe I tried to figure out
What you were thinkin’
I didn’t need it

Can’t believe I tried to work it out
You weren’t even worth it
You don’t deserve it
Can’t believe I tried to figure out
What you were thinkin’
I didn’t need it
