LyricsEdit

Why do you treat me this way
And why do you try so hard to break my spirit
I think someone was mean to you when you were little
That's what I think
I think someone was mean to you

Why do you cling to such petty points of contention
And why don't you allow me one or two small victories now and then
I think someone was mean to you when you didn't deserve it
That's what I think
I think someone was mean to you

But I
I am not that guy, can you get that straight
I am a completely different person
From the one you have in mind

Why do you stand by the things you say long after
You don't mean to hurt anybody anymore
I think someone was mean to you
For a long, long time
That's what I think
I think someone was mean to you
