Lyrics

Verse 1
Hey
This is a story I hate
And telling it might make me break
But I’ll tell it anyway
This chapter’s about
How you said there was nobody else
Then you got up and went to her house
You guys always left me out

Pre-chorus
I still have the letter you wrote when you told me
That I was the only girl you’d ever want in your life
I guess my friends were right

Chorus
Each day goes by and each night I cry
Somebody saw you with her last night
You gave me your word, “Don’t worry ‘bout her”
You might love her now, but you loved me first
Said you’d never hurt me, but here we are
Oh you swore on every star
How could you be so reckless with my heart?

Verse 2
You check in and out
Of my heart like a hotel
And she must be perfect, oh well
I hope you both go to hell

Pre-chorus
I still have the letter you wrote when you told me
That I was the only girl you’d ever want in your life
I guess my friends were right

Chorus
Each day goes by and each night, I cry
Somebody saw you with her last night
You gave me your word, “Don’t worry ‘bout her”
You might love her now, but you loved me first
Said you’d never hurt me, but here we are
Oh you swore on every star
How could you be so reckless with my heart? Heart

Bridge
How could you be so reckless?
How could you be so reckless?
How could you be so reckless with someone’s heart?

Outro
Hey
This is a story I hate
But I told it to cope with the pain
I’m so sorry if you can relate
