Wrong Side of a Love Song

Album: The MF Life (2012)
  • Where were you when I needed a friend?
    Thought I could be strong
    Never knew I'd be so wrong
    A heart-breaker most of my life
    Suddenly all changed
    The moment you left me
    And walked out my life

    I tried to play cool
    But instead I was playing myself
    What you gotta know about me
    Is that I'm dying in this lonely hell

    And I don't wanna be without you
    'Cause I can hardly breathe without you
    This is what it feels to be the one
    Who's standin' left behind
    How did I become the wrong side of a love song?

    Baby, I'm a mess
    Out of every piece and part of me
    You were always the best
    But instead I was leaving you here alone
    But I didn't mean it,
    No, I didn't mean it
    Now I'm begging, baby, come home

    And you got me singing why,
    Why you wanna make me cry?
    I'll be thinking 'bout you
    Got me dreaming 'bout you
    Every single day and night

    And I don't wanna be without you
    'Cause I can hardly breathe without you
    This is what it feels to be the one
    Who's standin' left behind
    How did I become the wrong side of a love song?

    How, baby?
    Wanna know why?
    Can you tell me, why?
    Said that you'll be there for me
    Said you'll care for me
    So how you're gonna say goodbye

    And I don't wanna be without you
    'Cause I can hardly breathe without you
    This is what it feels to be the one
    Who's standin' left behind
    How did I become the wrong side of a love song?

    Why, why?
    Why, why, why, oh, oh, oh, need you oh
    I really, really need you now, I really really need you now
    I really, really need you now, I really really need you now, boy
    Oh, baby, oh, baby, please Writer/s: GEORGE SOULE, MELANIE FIONA HALLIM, MATTHEW A. KAHANE
