I never thought I’d be the guy
To break a daughters heart
I’ve been trying so hard
But it keeps falling apart
This was a trick, for which I swore I’d never fall
But I guess I never knew myself
I never knew myself at all

‘Cause lately I’ve been a guy I swore I’d never be
And lately the reason she’s been crying has been me
And this isn’t what I want,
No, this isn’t what you need

Don’t mess with me because I’ll tear you apart
Don’t fall in love I’ll end breaking your heart,
Because the guy I’m turning into
Is the guy that always ends up hurting you
And your parents will hate me,
They’ll say I told you so
And your friends will say,
You’ve gotta let him go
But then I’ll say I’m sorry,
And you’ll take me back
Because you’re so forgiving,
And I just don’t deserve that

But that’s how its gotta work,
Because the guy you fell in love with is now the biggest jerk
No, it’s not my fault that you fell for every word that came out my mouth
Fell for every word, that

‘Cause lately I’ve been a guy I swore I’d never be
And lately the reason she’s been crying has been me
And this isn’t what I want,
No, this isn’t what you need

Don’t mess with me because I’ll tear you apart
Don’t fall in love I’ll end breaking your heart,
Because the guy I’m turning into
Is the guy that always ends up hurting you
And your parents will hate me,
They’ll say I told you so
And your friends will say,
You’ve gotta let him go
But then I’ll say I’m sorry,
And you’ll take me back
Because you’re so forgiving,
And I just don’t deserve that

I don’t have looks,
But words are all I need
To make you fall for me,
I’ll talk so smooth you’ll swear it’s love
I’ll talk so smooth you’ll swear it’s meant to be
And the truth is, I’m the biggest fake
I’m a chance you shouldn’t take,
I’m not the boy that you should choose
‘Cause girl I swear I’m nothing but bad news

Don’t mess with me
I’ll tear you apart
And you just don’t deserve that

    General Commenti love this song!

    i think its about a girl who kind of lets him take advantage of her. he makes her soo upset, and she always forgives him. and she doesnt deserve that.
