I made you think you don't understand

I used to think that happiness could only be something
That happened to somebody else
Everybody believed, everybody but me, yeah, yeah

And I've been hurt so many times before
That my hope was dying, so sick of trying
Everybody could see, everybody but me, yeah, yeah

But then you came into my life
You opened up my softer side
And now I can see into your eyes
And suddenly, I realize

I made you think you don't understand
All the times you didn't understand, why you couldn't just be my man
I made you think you don't understand
There were many walls you had to climb, if you really wanted to be mine

I made you think you don't understand
After all the hoops I put you through, now I see that I'm in love with you
Now, I hope you finally understand

So many tears I've had to cry
But you had many more of your own, you had to try
But you stuck it out and you're here with me now, yeah, yeah

And rememberin' the days I pushed away your love
You called my bluff and you still stayed around
Yeah, you figured me out, said you got me down

And there's no way to lie to you
You know me better than I do, ohh
Baby, ohh, you see me through
I'd be no good without you

I made you think you don't understand
All the times you didn't understand, why you couldn't just be my man
I made you think you don't understand
There were many walls you had to climb, if you really wanted to be mine

I made you think you don't understand
After all the hoops I put you through, now I see that I'm in love with you
Now, I hope you finally understand, yeah, ohh

Baby, won't you listen now
Can't you see just what I'm talking 'bout?
Said, baby, won't you listen now
Can't you see just what I'm talking 'bout?

Time went on and I was wrong
To keep my distance for so long
So afraid, you wouldn't stay
But you never turned away

Always right by my side
You're forever in my life
Don't you go 'cause now I know
That in you I found a home

Now I can see into your eyes
Suddenly, I realize

I made you think you don't understand
All the times you didn't understand, why you couldn't just be my man
I made you think you don't understand
There were many walls you had to climb, if you really wanted to be mine

I made you think you don't understand
After all the hoops I put you through, now I see that I'm in love with you
I made you think you don't understand
