Lyrics[]

Didn’t really want to be your lover
I was just bored and you were the first one I set my eyes on
Perhaps I was too young to be playing with fire
Like a loaded gun, you held me up on your desire

Had to learn how to run
Had to learn how to walk away
Had to learn how to run
Had to learn how to walk away

Didn’t really want to be your lover
I was just bored and you were the first one I set my eyes on

I hate that I love you
The worst part is I never wanted to
It kills me that I can’t be around you
But I want to
Gonna lose my heart, gonna lose my mind in your eyes

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh

Know you never meant to cause me trouble
You’re only human and I never should’ve had my eyes closed
But now it’s me who trips and stumbles
Over my feet, I wish you never would’ve let me go

I hate that I love you
The worst part is I never wanted to
It kills me that I can’t be around you
But I want to
Gonna lose my heart, gonna lose my mind in your eyes
Gonna lose my heart, gonna lose my mind in your eyes

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh

It’s such a shame that we’ve burned all our bridges
There is no way you will ever see me again
Because despite all of your good intentions
What you did you don’t do to a friend
What you did you don’t do to a friend

(1, 2, 3, 4)

I hate that I love you
The worst part is I never wanted to
It kills me that I can’t be around you
But I want to
Gonna lose my heart, gonna lose my mind in your eyes

I hate that I love you
The worst part is I never wanted to
It kills me that I can’t be around you
But I want to
But I want to
But I want to

Gonna lose my heart, gonna lose my mind in your eyes (But I want to)
Gonna lose my heart, gonna lose my mind in your eyes (But I want to)

I hate that I love you
I hate that I love you
I hate that I love you
