LyricsEdit

Nina:
Your dirty kiss, you tried to pull me right in
Your little tricks, you're used to winning
You play a part - dancer in the dark
Saying anything to try and steal away a heart

Now you got her, she's lying up in your bed
Don't seem to stop you, you keep on calling
You're out of line, waster of my time
I just wanna know how you can fall asleep at night

Hey, baby, you're just a pretender
I'm not crazy, should've known much better
Whatever you do, always twisting the truth
Well the table's 'bout to turn right back on you

You must be drunk, did you forget your way home?
I'm not the one who's scared of being alone
Got me confused with someone who needs you
Might be the joker, I'm nobody's fool

Hey, baby, you're just a pretender
Don't mistake me, you might think you're clever, boy
Whatever you do, always twisting the truth
Well the table's 'bout to turn right back on you, uh

Take all your lies, find you somebody else
I got my strength, got my pride in myself
So, what now, who you gonna mess around?
I can tell you right now - ain't gonna be me

Hey, baby, you're just a pretender
I'm not crazy, should've known much better
Whatever you do, always twisting the truth
Well the table's 'bout to turn right back on you
Well the table's 'bout to turn right back on you
