I like the way you wanted me
Every night for so long baby
I like the way you needed me
Every time things got rocky

I was believing in you
Was I mistaken do you mean
Do you mean what you say
When you say our love could last forever

(Chorus)
But I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow

I like the way you'd hold me
Every night for so long baby
I like the way you'd sing to me
Every time things got rocky


I was believing in you
Was I mistaken do you say
Do you say what you mean
When you say our love could last forever

(Chorus)
Cause I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow

(Bridge)
You would run around and lead me on forever
While I stay at home still thinking we're together
I wanted our love to last forever

(Chorus)
But I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow
Baby don't you break my heart slow

    General Commentshe basically just wants him to rip the Band-Aid off.
    she doesn't want the pain to go on and on.
    just get it over with.
    sooo true.
    welcome to life.
    most guys are too cowardly to tell a girl 'umm in case you haven't noticed, I DON'T like you'
    big slap in the face.

    General CommentBasically, don't lead her on and make her stay if everything he says and does is a lie.
    She'd rather him tell the truth and her leave than him to drag her around. Even though she DOES love him, and wants to be with him, she knows inside that she'd rather him tell her the truth.

    General CommentI can really relate to this song because it sucks sometimes just not knowing where things stand in a realtionship. I think its about how guys tend to shy away from telling the honest truth because they dont want to get caught up in what they think is "stupid drama". Just say what you mean. The sooner that happens, the easier it is to move on.
