I told you from the start
How it was going to be
How I couldn't be your boyfriend
Cuz all I do is cheat
When I'm with other women
You're engulfed in jealousy
You tell me you're not bothered
But it's obvious you are
I can see
The look on your face
And that escaping tear
So don't lie to me and tell me what I want to hear

You know I've been up front
I tried to relate
That I'm too independent
For you and I to date
We had an understanding
That was non-negotiable
That if we were to do this
It wouldn't ever lead to trouble
But I'm afraid what's happened
Is exactly what I feared
So don't lie to me and tell me what I want to hear

How can I impress upon you
That I really care
And that if you need a friend
You know I will be there
But I'm just no damn good
At this thing called love
If that's what you're lookin' for
You're better off lookin' in another direction

Cuz I know what you're seeking
And I'm not what you need I am one of many
Fish in the sea
I can't stand that I hurt you
And now I'm led to feel guilty
But I don't know why I should
You say that you're happy
But I can see
The sadness in your eyes
Yes that is how you appear
So don't lie to me and tell me what I want to hear
