The Aces - Cruel lyrics

[Verse 1]
I think back to when you were mine
I think about you, oh, I think about you
Even with someone new by my side
I think about you, I still think about you

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Out with friends, I see your face
You start to pull me in
Say you're in a better place
I start to let you in

[Chorus]
Why'd I have to love something bad?
Can't you go and hurt someone new?
Why protect myself to give it all back?
How am I back to square one with you?
Oh, I've lost myself
In a vicious hell
Of thinking you'll change
When I know that you never do
Why'd I have to go back to you?
Why'd I have to fall for someone cruel?

[Verse 2]
I tell myself that it'll work this time
And I believe it, oh, I believe it
The only one who can't detect your lies
I believe 'em, oh, I believe 'em

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Out with her now, changed your mind
And everyone can see
You're trying to run, but you can't hide
That she looks just like me
(You know she does)

[Chorus]
Why'd I have to love something bad?
Can't you go and hurt someone new?
Why protect myself to give it all back?
How am I back to square one with you?
Oh, I've lost myself
In a vicious hell
Of thinking you'll change
When I know that you never do
Why'd I have to go back to you?
Why'd I have to fall for someone cruel?

[Bridge]
I want you to know, I want you to know
I want you to know, I want you to know
That I'm gonna be just fine
I want you to know, I want you to know
I want you to know, I want you to know
That you have no place in my life

[Chorus]
Why'd I have to love something bad?
Can't you go and hurt someone new?
Why protect myself to give it all back?
How am I back to square one with you?
Oh, I've lost myself
In a vicious hell
Of thinking you'll change
When I know that you never do
Why'd I have to go back to you?
Why'd I have to fall for someone cruel?
