it took some time for you to see

i am not who you thought me to be

although i have admirable traits

ill still end up being our best mistake

i will do all i can for you

but that doesn't mean i wont leave you blue

you learned a lesson through loving me

and i am not what you think you need

for little flings i can be quite nice

but in lasting trials you'll win no prize

i don't want to be this way

but i tried to tell you, you've heard me say

do not invest your heart in me

or the ugly side of love is all you see

the side thats torture, heartache, and pain

but still ill be the one to take the blame

your learned a lesson through loving me

and i am not the one you think you need

for little flings i can be quite nice

but in lasting trials you'll win no prize

try not to be so hard on yourself

knowledge is power, power brings you wealth

and you'll be rich with the lessons of life

im sorry that it took up so much time

but now you know what to avoid

to assure your happiness, pleasures, and joy

you learned a lesson through loving me

and i am not the one you think you need

for little flings i can be quite nice

but in lasting trials you'll win no prize
