I need something more than your promises (promises)
Saying that you'll leave her, but you never did (never did)
You don't think I see this love is counterfeit (counterfeit)
Just let me go oh woah oh woah

We can only talk when you wanna talk (wanna talk)
We can make it secret in a parking lot (parking lot)
I can almost wish this time we're getting caught (getting caught)
Baby let me go oh woah oh woah

And this is me exposing you

If you don't (if you don't) tell her (tell her) then I will (then I will)
If you don't tell her then I will
If you don't (if you don't) tell her (tell her) then I will (then I will)
If you don't tell her then I will

Any time you could throw me away, but I'm not going no way soo
If you don't tell her then I will
Any time you could throw me away, but I'm not going no way soo
If you don't tell her then I will

Seems you're always missing from the photographs (photographs)
Too caught up in thinking it will never last (never last)
Funny 'cause that never stopped you in the past (in the past)
Gonna let you go, oh whoa oh whoa

Maybe now's the time for me to call her up (call her up)
Tell her all the ways that we've been making love (making love)
I don't see a future of us making up (making up)
Gonna let her know oh whoa oh whoa

And this is me exposing you

If you don't (if you don't) tell her (tell her) then I will (then I will)
If you don't tell her then I will
If you don't (if you don't) tell her (tell her) then I will (then I will)
If you don't tell her then I will

Any time you could throw me away, but I'm not going no way soo
If you don't tell her then I will
Any time you could throw me away, but I'm not going no way soo
If you don't tell her then I will

On this rollarcoaster, better hold on tight 'cause it's alright again and again and again
You think it's picture perfect, but you don't realize that you lie again and again and again
Sneaking out alone to try and get me on the phone (phone)
Think you're in control if you just keep me on the low (low)
On this rollarcoaster really don't feel right
So let me off boy, let me off babe

If you don't (if you don't) tell her (tell her) then I will (then I will)
If you don't tell her then I will
If you don't (if you don't) tell her (tell her) then I will (then I will)
If you don't tell her then I will

Any time you could throw me away, but I'm not going no way soo
If you don't tell her then I will
Any time you could throw me away, but I'm not going no way soo
If you don't tell her then I will

    General Commentwell the lyrics are pretty self explanatory.
    she's wants a guy who has a girlfriend,
    and she and that guy are messing around and she wants him to commit to her, but he is reluctant to do so.
    then she threatens to tell his girlfriend.
    :]

    General Commenthe also might not want to let her go, but he doesn't want to BE with her, just wants to keep her on the side.
    she can tell though but doesn't want to stay around if she's not going to get anything in return.
    i've been in this situation too much.
    :/
