Lyrics

Not That Kinda Guy

Written By: Chris Mercer

Not That Kinda Guy

Verse 1
I’ve been doing some thinking, about you and me,
It was fine while it lasted but I’ve got to be free,
Chorus
Said I’d love you forever, said my love wouldn’t die,
But baby I lied; I’m not that kinda guy…
Verse 2
Now I know I deceived you, when I promised I’d stay,
When we’ve known for a long time, I’d be leaving some day,
Chorus
You want me to love you, you want me to try,
Well baby I lied, I’m not that kinda guy…
Bridge
Don’t try to understand or reconcile, each faithless kiss, each empty smile,
Don’t try to deconstruct or analyze, there’s nothing else behind these eyes…
Verse 3
I could say that I want you, I could say that I care,
I could say that I need you, if that’s what you need to hear,
Chorus
I could say that I love you, and that this ain’t goodbye,
It’s just one more lie, I’m not that kinda guy,
So baby, I love you, and this ain’t goodbye,
It’s just one more lie, I’m not that kinda guy…
