lyrics

Written by John Lyons

I found a letter from my baby
While I was lookin' for my smokes
Should I read it, I thought yeah maybe
Here's how the story goes

It said ‘Dear James’, that was my first clue
That this letter was not meant for me
It mentioned a hotel and that it was great to see you
And soon it was plain for me to see

She's cheating on me
There goes my heart again
She's lying to me
I thought she was my friend
But shes cheating on me
There goes my heart again
She's lying to me
And I'm not ready for these kind of blues

When she came home from work I asked her
How was work and and who is James?
She could see from my expression
That I wasn't really playing games

She swore its a misunderstanding
I said I’ve heard it all before
As I packed my things she started crying
But I just headed out the door

She's cheating on me
There goes my heart again
She's lying to me
I thought she was my friend
But shes cheating on me
There goes my heart again
She's lying to me
And I'm not ready for these kind of blues

Dear James I'm not angry
You're just a reason for me to leave
I was looking for reasons anyways

She's cheating on me
There goes my heart again
She's lying to me
I thought she was my friend
But shes cheating on me
There goes my heart again
She's lying to me
And I'm not ready for these kind of blues
