As Much As I Wanted To

Verse 1: Every day I thought of the horrible things around me, tried to think that everything would be alri-i-ight. And then found, the eyes on the guy that stole my hear-ar-art!

Chorus: As much as I wanted to cry, I didn't. And as much as I wanted to lie, I tried my hardest, oo I tried. I thought love was supposed to be together whether ya like it or not. But I figured out, whoa oh oh, all that would happen is I would end up broken hearted like that girl on the movie screen. But you know, that's life, can't change it now, ohh ohh.

Verse 2: I used to think there would always be a road for me to crawl down when some boy came and broke my heart. But this time he watched it crumble until he was sure it wouldn't come back to the start. So now I'm buried in a sea of madness till my parents dig me ouuut, ohhh ooh, uh huh! But baby I know you won't come back around, come back around, noo oh oh!

Chorus: As much as I wanted to cry, I didn't. And as much as I wanted to lie, I tried my hardest, oo I tried. I thought love was supposed to be together whether ya like it or not. But I figured out, whoa oh oh, all that would happen is I would end up broken hearted like that girl on the movie screen. But you know, that's life, can't change it now, ohh ohh.

One of these days gonna wake up and find that she's gone, and she took your key. And when you come crawling back don't expect to find the girl who loved you, because she's no longer me (oh yeah she's no longer mee)

Chorus: As much as I want to cry, I don't. And as much as I want to lie, I'm tryin' my hardest, oo I'm tryin'. I thought love was supposed to be together whether ya like it or not. But I figured out, whoa oh oh, all that would happen is I would end up broken hearted like that girl on the movie screen. But you know, that's life, can't change it now, ohh ohh.
