lyrics

when i say good morning
and you say goodbye
with your arms wrapped around me,
when i ask if you love me
and you say that you might
with your arms wrapped around me,

and i heard that
wantin’ ain’t gettin’
now i know

when you are my lover
we turn out the light
i wanna believe you,
i’ve got your love wrapped around me
so i put up a fight ‘cause
i wanna believe you

but i heard that
wantin’ ain’t gettin’
now i know

and i heard how it hurts
yeah it kills all your nerve,
that shit makes you blue.
and i heard how you cry
like you’re wounded
now i know it’s true,

what i heard that
wantin’ ain’t gettin’
now i know
