YOU TOLD ME ONCE

Doncha think there must be something better baby
That you could be doing?
Maybe driving some dumb ass lawyer down the road to ruin?
Instead of cashing in all the interest that my love's been accruing?

Ain't it kinda funny honey how some battles just never get won?
The weight of your love still feels heavier than a ton
Cuz I remember when you shone brighter to me than the sun

You told me once that you belonged to me
You told me once that you belonged to me
I keep trying to finally set you free

Do ya think there's a reason for every thing that we do?
Remember how that little lie grew and grew?
When you drove away i sure hope you enjoyed the view 

When you're in your bed at night am i on your mind?
Do you remember how fine it felt when we could unwind?
Do I ever feel like something good that you left behind?

You told me once that you belonged to me
You told me once that you belonged to me
I keep trying to finally set you free

Yeah i got eyes but i can't seem to see
The reasons that you gave for leaving me
And your love holds me down like gravity

I'm gonna tell you one more time this round
Certain things are better off lost than found
But Iíll still love you when Iím six feet in the ground

You told me once that you belonged to me
You told me once that you belonged to me
Man i really wish I could finally set you free
