“WHEN YOU WERE MY GIRL” (2:57)

(If there are any corrections, let me know below.)

[Verse 1]
You tell me that you want me
You’re thinking that you’ll walk back in my life again
Saying you need me
But I’ve been hearing stories from mistaken friends

[Bridge]
And someone said you sold me out, you sold me out
I try to shut it out, but it’s too late

[Chorus]
And all those tears I watched you fake
Thinking I was doing you wrong
But now I hear it’s my mistake
‘Cause you were never sleeping alone
When you were my girl (x2)

[Verse 2]
I told you I was sorry
How could you lie so easily right to the end?
You wanna hold me
But I don’t find it that easy to pretend

[Bridge – variation]
When someone says you sold me out, you sold me out
I try to shut it out, but it’s too late

[Chorus]
And all those tears I watched you fake
Thinking I was doing you wrong
But now I hear it’s my mistake
‘Cause you were never sleeping alone
When you were my girl (x3)

Oh, ooh
When you were my

[Chorus x2]
All those tears I watched you fake
Thinking I was doing you wrong
But now I hear it’s my mistake
‘Cause you were never sleeping alone
When you were my girl

When you were my girl
Oh, when you were my girl
Oh-oh-oh
