  • It's like thunder and lightning
    You hurt me without trying
    A tempest, you was rising
    And no I don't like to be this way
    And you're Jekyll and Hyde-ing
    Are you real or are you lying?
    So stop with your crying
    I can't handle it now

    You tell everyone our love went cold
    Going 'round, spreading the word, it's over
    If that's how you feel then you should go
    Don't come around saying, "I still want you"

    One minute you say we're a team
    Then you're telling me you can't breathe
    Well you should set me free
    Baby, if you're over me

    Yesterday you said I'm the one
    But now you say you're done
    Stop telling me what I need
    Baby, if you're over me

    There you go, there, I said it
    Don't look at me all offended
    You played games and it ended
    I've got to look out for me

    I won't say that it's easy
    Oh, I know I hate leaving
    But you can't keep deceiving
    Does it make you feel good?

    You tell everyone our love went cold
    Going around, spreading the word, it's over
    If that's how you feel then you should go
    Don't come around saying, "I still want you"

    One minute you say we're a team
    Then you're telling me you can't breathe
    Well you should set me free
    Baby, if you're over me

    Yesterday you said I'm the one
    But now you say you're done
    Stop telling me what I need
    Baby, if you're over me

    If you're over me
    If you're over me
    Stop telling me what I need
    Baby, if you're over me

    How long can a love remain?
    Time never could heal this pain
    I thought I believed in fate
    Oh, it's so cruel
    No, nothing for us would change
    Same story, the same mistake
    This heart just wants to break

    Oh, one minute you say we're a team
    Then you're telling me you can't breathe (can't breathe)
    Well you should set me free
    Baby, if you're over me
    Yesterday you said I'm the one
    But now you say you're done
    Stop telling me what I need (telling me what I need)
    Baby, if you're over me

    Just go if it's over (just go)
    Just go if it's over (just go if it's over)
    Just go if it's over
    Baby, if you're over me

    Just go if it's over (just go)
    Just go if it's over (just go if it's over)
    Just go if it's over
    Baby, if you're over me Writer/s: Mark Stuart Ralph, Oliver Alexander Thornton, Steve Mac
