Verse

You said, I have to leave, in a year or so,

And I can't take you with me, and I said, I know.

You said, what we have now is special and new,

And I'm not sure why but I could tell it wasn't true.

Chorus

Now you think you've got a fool in the palm of your hands.

But baby I'm just complaint, I perfectly understand

Just who you are and what games you play.

So when you're finally gone, I know I'll be okay.

Verse

You said, she means nothing, she's just a headache.

But your words never match the actions you take.

And I'm stuck in the sidelines waiting for your attention.

I was hoping I would get it, but now I don't think I can.

Chorus

Now you think you've got a fool in the palm of your hands.

But baby I'm just complaint, I perfectly understand

Just who you are and what games you play.

So when you're finally gone, I know I'll be okay.

Bridge

All I want is a little time, but you think that's too much.

All you want is sex, but all I make is a fuss.

And I can tell that neither of us can now feel the rush.

So I wipe my tears and I ask myself why I stay.

I guess it's just too much trouble getting away.

But when you're finally gone, you bet I'll be okay.

Chorus

Now you think you've got a fool in the palm of your hands.

But baby I'm just complaint, I perfectly understand

Just who you are and what games you play.

So when you're finally gone, I know I'll be okay.
