“Gone” by The Exchange

I should’ve known you were trouble from the start
I should’ve know you were gonna break my heart, but
When you walked in with that skirt
And you on the floor putting in that work
And your hour glass figure loin so damn perfect
Caused a chain reaction and lapse in judgement

But little did I know you
Were a professional you
Burn me like a firecracker
Wreck me like a natural disaster
Back and forth like a piece of elastic
Stole my heart but I’m takin’ it back

And I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m done playin’ your games and now I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m done playin’ your games and now I’m gone

(Betcha never thought it’d end like this,
Betcha never thought it’d end like this, did ya)
Gone!
(Betcha never thought it’d end like this,
Betcha never thought it’d end like this did ya)

I should’ve looked for the signs that said that you were crazy
I should’ve looked for the signs that said that you would play me
But I was blinded, when you came into my sight
And you were hiding, behind the sweetest disguise

Little did I know you
Were a professional you
Burn me like a firecracker
Wreck me like a natural disaster
Back and forth like a piece of elastic
Stole my heart but I’m takin’ it back,

And I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m done playin’ your games and now I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m done playin’ your games and now I’m gone

(Betcha never thought it’d end like this,
Betcha never thought it’d end like this, did ya)
Gone!
(Betcha never thought it’d end like this,
Betcha never thought it’d end like this did ya)

Once upon a time we had a magical thing
We were building our fairytale and I was the king
I held you high upon a stoop and you could do no wrong
But now I’m feeling so free, call this my swan song
This’ll be on the charts and I wont flex
But I promise you’ll feel as dumb as Beyonce’s ex
Yea you were playing games and you made your mess
But shawty you were playing checkers and I was playing chess
I considered you a pawn so I paid you no mind
Cause I knew you could never handle being a queen on the backline
It feels so good to be out of danger
And months from now you’ll try to hit me with the “hey stranger”
Naw naw it’s all gravy baby
I’ma keep it moving you don’t phase me baby
Let me say one more thing just before I go
Now I’m just somebody that you used to blow
I’m gone…

Step to the left I’m through with this
I don’t wanna hear how much you’l miss me
You already know that I’m not listenin’
Girl, you just been dismissed
I’m done plain your games and now I’m gone

And I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m done playin’ your games and now I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m done playin’ your games and now I’m gone

(Betcha never thought it’d end like this,
Betcha never thought it’d end like this, did ya)
Gone!
(Betcha never thought it’d end like this,
Betcha never thought it’d end like this did ya)
