  • It was a fun, strange summer
    I rolled on, didn't think of you
    We lost touch with each other
    Fall came and I had to move

    Moving backwards, hurt comes after
    Healing doesn't happen in a straight line

    If I cry just a little
    And then laugh in the middle
    If I hate you then I love you
    Then I change my mind
    If I need just a little
    More time to deal with the fact
    That you should have treated me right
    Then I'm more than just a little justified
    Mm-mm, mm-mm
    I'm more than just a little justified

    To touch somebody
    You know I tried to make that you
    And when you lied and said, you didn't want me
    Tell me what was I supposed to do?

    Moving on was feeling strong
    But healing doesn't happen in a straight line

    If I cry just a little
    And then laugh in the middle
    If I hate you and I love you
    Then I change my mind
    If I need just a little
    More time to deal with the fact
    That you should have treated me right
    Then I'm more than just a little justified
    Mm-mm, mm-mm
    I'm more than just a little justified

    If I die just a little
    Inside just a little
    If I want you and I call you
    Then I change my mind
    If I need just a little
    More time to deal with the fact
    That I should have treated you right
    I'm more than just a little

    If I cry just a little
    And then laugh in the middle
    And I hate you and I love you
    Then I change my mind (a million times)
    If I need just a little
    More time to deal with the fact
    That you should have treated me right
    Then I'm more than just a little justified
    Mm-mm, mm-mm
    I'm more than just a little justified
