Lyrics

play I won't lie to you
play I know he's just not right for you
play And you can tell me if i'm off
play But I see it on your face
play When you say that he's the one that you want
play And you're spending all your time
play In this wrong situation
play And anytime you want it to stop

play I know I can treat you better than he can
play And any girl like you deserves a gentleman
play Tell me why are we wasting time
play On all your wasted crying
play When you should be with me instead
play I know I can treat you better
play Better than he can

play I'll stop time for you
play The second you say you'd like me to
play I just wanna give you
play the loving that you're missing
play Baby, just to wake up with you
play Would be everything I need
play and this could be so different
play Tell me what you want to do

play 'Cause I know I can treat you better than he can
play And any girl like you deserves a gentleman
play Tell me why are we wasting time
play On all your wasted crying
play When you should be with me instead
play I know I can treat you better
play Better than he can

play Better than he can

play Give me a sign
play Take my hand, we'll be fine
play Promise I won't let you down
play Just know that you don't
play Have to do this alone
play Promise I'll never let you down

play 'Cause I know I can treat you better than he can
play And any girl like you deserves a gentleman
play Tell me why are we wasting time
play On all your wasted crying
play When you should be with me instead
play I know I can treat you better
play Better than he can

play Better than he can

play Better than he can
