Lyrics: A. Hoff

Slow it down, slow it down
Slow it down, slow it down…

If you’re looking for a definition of blindsided
Baby, look at me
I don’t think I’ve ever felt so tricked in my life, boy
Look what you’re doing to me
You used to call me every day, just to show you cared
Didn’t think you were going nowhere
Boy I guess you fooled me
‘Cause suddenly you’re out of reach

Got me wondering what the hell is happening
Is my imagination playing tricks on me
Could’ve sworn that just last week you were into me
Now all I have is memories

Now I wish I could forget what you said
When you said you loved me
But your words keep repeating in my head
And baby tell me why I am I alone
When you said you’d never leave me
Now I’m waiting by the phone instead
And I hate that you can keep me on the line
When it’s clear to me you ain’t coming back to me
And I wish I could accept
That you ain’t the man I thought you were
But you couldn’t even tell me that it’s over

If you’re looking for your absolution
When you did the wrong thing
It ain’t gon’ be from me
‘Cause boy I been forgiving your mistakes too long
We’re past apologies
You used to tempt me with your smile
Said you’d never lie
Never thought you’d leave without goodbye
I guess you played me
You were always out of reach

And I can’t believe it’s happening
Should’ve known my heart would play these tricks on me
‘Cause I thought that you were really in love with me
And I can’t even trust my own memories, baby no
And I wish I could tell you how you’re hurting me
But my pride won’t let me be the first to speak
Seems so easy for you to abandon me
If you wanted me to hate you, you did the right thing

Now I wish I could forget what you said
When you said you loved me
But your words keep repeating in my head
And baby tell me why I am I alone
When you said you’d never leave me
Now I’m waiting by the phone instead
And I hate that you can keep me on the line
When it’s clear to me you ain’t coming back to me
And I wish I could accept
That you ain’t the man I thought you were
But you couldn’t even tell me that it’s over

Now I wish I could let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go…

Now I wish I could forget what you said
When you said you loved me
But your words keep repeating in my head
And baby tell me why I am I alone
When you said you’d never leave me
Now I’m waiting by the phone instead
And I hate that you can keep me on the line
When it’s clear to me you ain’t coming back to me
And I wish I could accept
That you ain’t the man I thought you were
But you couldn’t even tell me that it’s over
