Lyrics

[Verse 1] Ah, loving you is easy, you are on my side We played the game strictly to our rules We led the field, a love affair Which made all other lovers fools [Chorus 1] Oh, how can you ever let me down? (Down) How can you ever let me down? (Down) How can you ever let me down? These promises are made for us (A-ah, o-o-oh, oh-oh) [Verse 2] We promised that we'd always have time for each other Whenever I needed, you'd be there We promised to be true, there'd be no other We promised that forever, we would care [Chorus 1] Oh, how can you ever let me down? (Down) How can you ever let me down? (Down) How can you ever let me down? These promises are made for us (A-ah, o-o-oh, oh-oh) [Bridge] We had to change, oh, but you stayed the same You wouldn't change, oh, what a shame [Verse 3] 'cause loving you's not easy, you're not on my side We play a game with two sets of rules We lead the field in a love affair Oh, strictly meant for fools [Chorus 2] Oh, why did you ever let me down? (Down) Why did you ever let me down? (Down) Why did you ever let me down? Those promises were made for us (A-Ah, o-o-oh, o-oh) [Verse 4] You never have any time for me Whenever I need you, you're not there You've never been true and it's plain to see The fact is, you never really cared [Chorus 2] Oh, why did you ever let me down? (Down) Why did you ever let me down? (Down) Why did you ever let me down? Those promises, we made for us (A-Ah, o-o-oh, o-oh)
