Why do you treat me this way
Why do you try so hard
To break my spirits
I think someone was mean to you
When you were little
That's what I think
I think someone was mean to you
Why do you cling to such petty points
Of contention
Why won't you allow anyone to solve your dreams
Now and then
I think someone was mean to you
When you didn't deserve it
That's what I think
I think someone was mean to you
But I, I'm not that guy
Can you get that straight
I am a completely different person
Than the one you have in mind
Why do you stand by the things you say
Long after you don't need to hurt anybody anymore
I think someone was mean to you
For a long, long time
I think someone was mean to you
