Intro

And if you're gonna reduce me into a broken mess,

Sorry, honey, but I'm gonna write a song talking about

All the mean things that I can never say to your face.

Verse 1

Who told you it's okay to play with my heart?

Oh that's right, I did!

Yeah, for an intelligent woman I can be so

Incredibly stupid!

Pre-chorus

I was the one who gave you all my trust,

Thinking forever and ever we would last.

And then my hopes and dreams were crushed.

Chorus

You should have said no back in July,

Back when it was just a crush for me,

And I didn't find the light in your eye.

You should have said no back in July,

Back when we used to be just friends,

You didn't have to build me this huge lie.

You should have said no back in July,

It would have hurt so much less then,

You wouldn't have made me hurt and cry.

You should have said no back in July,

You should have said no back in July.

Verse 2

You said no to the movie date, so why the hell did

You go out on the rest?

Or reassure me things were okay even when I

Knew it in my chest

Bridge

That you were gonna stomp on my heart,

Take it all away, tear everything apart,

And walk away like you did.

Yeah, for an intelligent woman I can be so

Incredibly stupid!

I may be a total doll, but I'm not your doll

To be played with.

Pre-chorus

But I was the one who gave you all my trust,

Thinking forever and ever we would last.

And then my hopes and dreams were crushed.

Chorus

You should have said no back in July,

Back when it was just a crush for me,

And I didn't find the light in your eye.

You should have said no back in July,

Back when we used to be just friends,

You didn't have to build me this huge lie.

You should have said no back in July,

It would have hurt so much less then,

You wouldn't have made me hurt and cry.

You should have said no back in July,

You should have said no back in July.

Outro

And if you're gonna reduce me into a broken mess,

Sorry, honey, but I'm gonna write a song talking about

All the mean things that I can never say to your face.

I don't even know anymore if I ever knew you.

I'm having trouble trusting you again now, I confess.
