Song lyrics
I wish I could believe you
Then I'll be alright
But now everything you told me, really don't apply
To the way I feel inside
Loving you was easy
Once upon a time
But now my suspicions of you, have multiplied
And it's all because you lied

[chorus:]
I only give you hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I haven't tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment

Just can't seem to get over
The way you hurt me
Don't know how you gave another
What didn't mean a thing
The very thing you gave to me
I thought I could forgive you
And I know you've change
As much as I wanna trust you
I know it aint the same
And it's all it's all because you lied

[chorus:]
I only give you hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I haven't tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment
I may never understand why
I'm doing the best that I can and I
I tried and I tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment

(You lied)
I'll always remember feelin'
(You lied)
Like I was no good
(You lied)
Like I couldn't do it for you
(You lied)
like your mistress could
(ohh yeah)
And it's all because you lied.

(You lied)
Loved you more than ever
(You lied)
More than my own life
(You lied)
But this part of me I gave you
(You lied)
It was sacrifice
(Sacrifice)
And it's all because you lied

[chorus:]
I only give you hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I tried and tried to forget this
(I tried and I tired and I tired)
But I'm too damn much too full of resentment

I know she was attractive
But I was here first
Been ridin' with you for 6 years
Why did I deserve
To be treated this way by you (you)

I know your probably thinkin'
What's up with B
I been cryin' for too long
What did you do to me
I used to be so strong
Now you took my soul

I'm cryin'
Can't stop cryin'
Can't stop cryin'
You coulda told me
You wasn't happy
I know you didn't wanna hurt me
But look what you done done to me now
I gotta look at her in her eyes
And see she's half of me (You lied)
How could you lie (You lied)

The lyrics at the end:

...
I know you didn't wanna hurt me
But look what you have done to me now
I gotta look at her in her eyes
And see she's had have of me
She ain't even half of me!
Look what you've done to me now
And it's all because you lied

God I love this song... It makes me cry anytime I hear it... She has such a beautiful voice. Beyonce is one of my favorite singers I can't wait to see her movie (dreamgirls). Anyway sorry if you don't completely understand what I wrote because I'm french

I like The song, but the original one, victoria beckham's version is better.
