Yesterday you told me that you love me
And you love me for good
You said that we'll get married
When the time was right and I understood

But how long were you planning
To deceive me?
Love me and then leave me
How long will you pull on with my love over my eyes?

Wish you had told me
You were a family man
'Cause if you had told me
I would have made other plans

It wasn't very long ago
You promised me that we'd go away
Told me to be patient, you say
Good things come to those who can wait

How long will you play with my emotions
Treat me like a token?
How long must you play your silly games
With my heart?

I wish you had told me
You were a family man
'Cause if you had told me
I would have made other plans

I wish you had told me
You were a family man
'Cause if you had told me
I would have made other plans

Please, I've had enough of this mess
Baby, oh, how long?
How long?

How long will you play with my emotions
Treat my like a token?
How long must you play your silly games
With my heart?

I wish you had told me
You were a family man
'Cause if you had told me
I would have made other plans

I wish you had told me
You were a family man
'Cause if you had told me
I would have made other plans

I know it just ain't right
To your feelings and your wife
And all you lost is an alibi
For mixing up my life

How do I love you like I do, I do
I have perfect faith in you
How could I be so blunt
That you play me, play me for a fool

I wish you hadn't told me
You were a family man
'Cause if you would had told me
I would have made other plans
