Beyoncé Resentment Lyrics

I wish I could believe you, and I'd be alright
But now everything you told me really don't apply to the way I feel inside
Loving you was easy once upon a time
Now my suspicions of you have multiplied
And it's all because you lied

I only give you a hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like I haven't tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment

Just can't seem to get over the way you hurt me
Don't know how you gave another didn't mean a thing
The very thing you gave to me

I thought I could forgive you, and I know you've changed
As much as I want to trust you, I know it ain't the same
And it's all because you lied

I only give you a hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like I haven't tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment
And its all because you lied

I only give you a hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like I haven't tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment

I may never understand why
I'm doing the best that I can
And I, I tried, and I tried to forget this,
But I'm much too full of resentment

I'll always remember feeling like I was no good,
Like I couldn't do it for you like your mistress could
And it's all because you lied

Loved you more than another, more than my own life
But that part of me I gave you
It was sacrificed
And it's all because you lied

I only give you a hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like I haven't tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment

I know she was attractive, but I was here first
Been riding with you for 6 years
Why did I deserve to be treated this way by you?
I know you're probably thinking, "what's up with be ?"
I been crying for too long, what did you do to me?

I used to be so strong, but now you took my soul
I'm crying! Can't stop crying! Can't stop crying!
You coulda told me you wasn't happy
I know you didn't wanna hurt me
But look what you've done to me now
I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she's got half of me
How could you lie?
