If I listened long enough to you
I’d find a way to believe that it’s all true
Knowing that you lied, straight-faced, while I cried
Still I’d look to find a reason to believe
Someone like you makes it hard to live without somebody else
Someone like you makes it easy to give, never think of myself

If I gave you time to change my mind
I’d find a way to leave the past behind
Knowing that you lied, straight-faced, while I cried
Still I’d look to find a reason to believe

Someone like you makes it hard to live without somebody else
Someone like you makes it easy to give, never think of myself

Someone like you makes it hard to think about somebody else
If I listened long enough to you
I’d find a way to believe that it’s all true
I’d find a reason, a reason to believe (oh no)
And though I want you, you’re just not what I need

Someone like you makes it hard to live without somebody else
Someone like you makes it easy to give, never think of myself

Someone like you makes it hard to live without somebody else
Someone like you, like you
I’d find a reason to believe
I would find a reason to believe
