Baby, tell me what you're trying to prove
Playing games with my heart
Hey now listen, I ain't gonna take one more night

You're the one who broke the rules
And I'm the one who played the fool
And now you're trying to tell me that it's alright

You should know better than to hurt a friend
You'll never get another chance again

You'll be back where you started
You know you won't admit it, you'll be broken-hearted
You'll be back where you started
You think it's gonna be easy but it just gets harder, harder

You, you had a way with words
One look and I was under your spell
I didn't know, should I stay, should I run

You can't deny you told me lies
Love 'em and leave 'em baby, that's your style
I'm not afraid to take life as it comes

You play with fire, I guess you'll never learn

You mess with me babe, you're gonna get burned

You'll be back where you started
Then you'll know how it feels when you've been discarded
You'll be back where you started
You think it's gonna get easy but it won't get you far
No, it won't get you far, you'll be back where you started

Who'll wanna help ya, throw you a lifeline
I'll tell you one thing, you've really done it this time
You took your one chance and let it slip away
You're not that kind who'll ever settle down
The rumor's gettin' out all over town

That you'll be back where you started
Then you know how it feels when you've been discarded
You'll be back where you started
You think it's gonna be easy but it won't get you far
You'll be back where you started, oh yeah, oh

Back where you started
