Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

No, oh
Oh, yeah
Yeah, uh

You try with me so many times
You're cryin' out behind the smiles
And I can see right through the lies
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And what we had is dead inside, yeah
You're actin' like it's still alive
And you still wanna make it right, yeah
I know

But I've been the hardest to love
You're tryna let me go, yeah
And I can see it, I can see it
I've been the hardest to love
It's hard to let me go, yeah
And I can feel it, I can feel it (oh, yeah)

I don't feel it anymore (yeah)
The house I bought is not a home (no)
Together we are so alone
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (oh)
Don't regret the day we met (we met)
Don't forget that time we spent (we spent)
Forget that we're in different beds
I know

'Cause I've been the hardest to love
You're tryna let me go, yeah
And I can see it, I can see it
I've been the hardest to love
It's hard to let me go, yeah
And I can feel it, I can feel it

I can't, can't believe you want me (oh)
After all the heart breaks (oh), after all I've done
Oh-oh-oh (oh, oh, oh)
No, I can't, can't believe you trust me (trust me)
After all the rough days
You still call me up (me up, oh-oh-oh)

'Cause I've been the hardest to love
You're tryna let me go (tryna let me go), yeah
And I can see it, I can see it (I can see it)
I've been the hardest to love (love, baby)
You're tryna let me go, yeah
And I can feel it, I can feel it
