play And you can tell me if I'm  
play But I see it on your  
play When you say that he's the   that you want
play And you're   all your time
play In this wrong  
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   a  
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     for you
play The   you say you'd like me to
play I just wanna give you
play the   that you're  
play Baby, just to     with you
play Would be everything I  
play and this     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  
play Take my   , we'll be  
play Promise I won't let you  
play Just know that you don't
play Have to do this  
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
