Verse 1

I don't understand why you're always defending

The one who's never been there for any of you.

You keep on claiming that he's been good enough,

Are you delusional? Don't you know it's not true?

Verse 2

I would forgive him if I saw that he had changed.

But he has the same old unacceptable behavior.

I'm sorry, but the bad in him outweighs the good.

I love him, but I'll never respect him, let's be clear.

Chorus

And you constantly misunderstand

The one who's trying to hold your hand

And shield you from the darkness,

And keep you away from all this mess.

I just hope when you face the blow,

You finally realize, you finally know

Which one of them actually cares about you,

Hope you learn the difference between love and abuse.

Your present is nothing like her past,

And your future can be anything that you choose.

Verse 3

His aggression isn't towards you- his angry how

He can't save you from the shrewd manipulation,

How you can never stand up against what's wrong,

He's just looking for some peace, not retaliation.

Chorus

And you constantly misunderstand

The one who's trying to hold your hand

And shield you from the darkness,

And keep you away from all this mess.

I just hope when you face the blow,

You finally realize, you finally know

Which one of them actually cares about you,

Hope you learn the difference between love and abuse.

Your present is nothing like her past,

And your future can be anything that you choose.
