  • It's not a case of doing what's right
    It's just the way I feel that matters
    Tell me I'm wrong
    I don't really care

    It's not a case of share and share alike
    I take what I require
    I don't understand
    You say it's not fair

    You expect me to act like a lover
    Consider my moves and deserve the reward
    To hold you in my arms and wait, and wait
    And wait for something to happen

    It's not a case of telling the truth
    Some lines just fit the situation
    Call me a liar
    You would anyway

    It's not a case of aiming to please
    You know your always crying
    It's just your part
    In the play for today

    Thanks to Jorge Jaramillo for the correction
