You Gotta Stop...

So many sleepless nights have passed, since I saw your smiling face
It's been many broken hearts since then, but now the pieces are in place.
Now you feel alone again, and you're knocking at my door
It seems you lost the key and then, you forgot what we broke up for.

You used to say that I was jealous, and that he was just a friend
The weekends that you spent with me, were just a means brought to an end.
You told me that you didn't know, the reason why I felt that way
And I didn't know the reason why, you had to see him every day.

You gotta stop!
Believin'
That there's something left inside of you.
You gotta stop!
Believin'
That there's feelings I still hide from you.
If there's one thing I can tell you, girl
I've got to try to make you see
I may not know what's best for you
But I know what's best for me.
You gotta stop!....
Whatever happened to the lover, that you thought I didn't know?
When you told him you were done with me, did he decide to let you go?
I knew he didn't care for me, when he knew that you were mine
He wanted what he couldn't have, how many times have I heard that line?

When you called me up a month ago, and you asked me how I was
I asked you why you thought of me, and you said it's just because. 
Now here's another line for you, one I'm sure that you will know
You never know just what you had, until the night that you let it go.

You gotta stop!
Believin'
That there's something left inside of you.
You gotta stop!
Believin'
That there's feelings I still hide from you.
If there's one thing I can tell you, girl
I've got to try to make you see
I may not know what's best for you
But I know what's best for me.
You gotta stop!....
