If I was strong then I wouldn't care
If she was here or she was there
But I guess I didn't go by the rules
'Cause she really made me look like a fool

I shouldn't have let it hurt me at all
'Cause I know the price you pay when you fall
But I couldn't believe it was true
When she told me we were through

And the reason why I cry
I wish I knew

My friends told me about her
When they saw me hold her hand
But I didn't think they knew her
So how could they understand

I couldn't hear a word they were saying
'Cause inside my head the music was playing
But I found out it was all true
When she told me we were through

And the reason why I cry
I wish I knew

I couldn't hear a word they were saying
'Cause inside my head the music was playing
But I found out it was all true
When she told me we were through

And the reason why I cry
I wish I knew
Oh yeah, I wish I knew
Oh yeah, I wish I knew
