Lyrics:
Something told me inside that your love was untrue
You said, “Girl, it’s alright. I would never hurt you.”
Just to be by your side I would walk through the flames
Now it hurts me inside just to hear your name

I learned the hard way
That your love is cruel
I learned the hard way
Not to be your fool
I learned the hard way about you

When I opened my eyes it was all around me
Clouds of perfume and lies and a hotel key
Then I answered your phone and heard a gasp and a click
Was that wrong number wrong, or was she after your love?

Just to be by your side I would have walked through the flames
Now it hurts me inside just to hear your name

I learned the hard way…
… Now I know about you
