  • I thought you were just being a girl
    The kind that just wants to change me
    Likes to find all my flaws
    Thought I had you figured out
    I told myself she's crazy
    Man, was I ever wrong
    The whole time you were just trying to love me

    I pushed and you pulled
    Should have just fell into you
    But I did what I always do, I always do
    Wanted to talk but I walked away
    Didn't want to hear what you had to say
    Stupid me, can't believe I never knew
    The whole time you were just trying to love me

    Didn't think those tears were real
    I thought you were just trying to play me
    I just stood there and let em fall
    You were just loving me after all

    I pushed and you pulled
    Should have just fell into you
    But I did what I always do, I always do
    Wanted to talk but I walked away
    Didn't want to hear what you had to say
    Stupid me, can't believe I never knew
    The whole time you were just trying to love me

    Wanted to talk but I walked away
    Didn't want to hear what you had to say
    Stupid me, I can't believe I never knew, I never knew
    The whole time you were just trying
    The whole time you were just trying
    To love me
    Trying to love me Writer/s: HILLARY LEE LINDSEY, NEIL THRASHER, WENDELL MOBLEY
