  • Didn't you know
    I was waiting on you
    Waiting on a dream
    That'll never come true
    Didn't you know
    I was waiting on you
    My face turned to stone
    When I heard the news

    When you decide to break the rules
    'Cause I just heard some real bad news

    People will talk
    Like its old news
    I played it off and act like I already knew
    Let me ask you
    How long have you known too
    You played it off and act like he's brand new

    When you decide to break the rules
    'Cause I just heard some real bad news

    Real bad news
    Real bad news
    Real bad news

    Oh you just gonna
    Keep another no you wont

    Oh you just gonna
    Keep it like you never knew

    Oh you just gonna
    Keep another love for you

    Oh you just gonna
    Keep it like you never knew

    While I'm waiting on a dream
    That'll never come true

    Oh you just gonna
    Keep it like you never knew

    My face turned to stone
    When I heard the news
