Lyrics

Lisa:
Once upon a time
A few mistakes ago
I was in your sights
You got me alone
Lisa with Christina:
You found me
You found me
Lisa with Christina and Katherine:
You found me-e-e-e-e-e-e
Lisa:
I guess you didn't care
And I guess I liked that
And when I fell hard
You took a step back
Lisa with Christina:
Without me
Without me
Lisa with Christina and Katherine:
Without me-e-e-e-e-e-e-ee

Amy with background vocals from Cimorelli:
And he's long gone
When he's next to me
And I realize
The blame is on me

Katherine with background vocals from Cimorelli:
'Cause I knew you were trouble
When you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble
When you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
Now I'm lying
On the cold hard ground
Oh
Oh
Katherine with Lisa and background vocals from Cimorelli:
Trouble, trouble, trouble
Katherine with background vocals from Cimorelli:
Oh
Oh
Katherine with Lisa and background vocals from Cimorelli:
Trouble, trouble, trouble

Lauren:
No apologies
He'll never see you cry
Pretends he doesn't know
That he's the reason why
Lauren with Christina, Katherine, and Lisa:
You're drowning
You're drowning
You're drowning
Lauren:
Now I heard you moved on
From whispers on the street
A new notch in your belt
Is all I'll ever be
Lauren with Christina, Katherine, and Lisa:
And now I see
Now I see
Now I see

Christina with background vocals from Cimorelli:
He was long gone
When he met me
And I realize
The joke is on me
Yeah

Katherine with background vocals from Cimorelli:
'Cause I knew you were trouble
When you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble
When you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
Now I'm lying
On the cold hard ground
Oh
Oh
Katherine with Lisa and background vocals from Cimorelli:
Trouble, trouble, trouble
Katherine with background vocals from Cimorelli:
Oh
Oh
Katherine with Lisa and background vocals from Cimorelli:
Trouble, trouble, trouble

Dani (Cimorelli):
And the saddest fear (oooh)
Comes creeping in (oooh)
That you never loved me or her
Dani with Lisa:
Or anyone
Dani with Cimorelli:
Or anything
Dani with Lisa:
Yeah

Katherine with background vocals from Cimorelli:
'Cause I knew you were trouble
When you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble
When you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
Now I'm lying
On the cold hard ground
Oh
Oh
Katherine with Lisa and background vocals from Cimorelli:
Trouble, trouble, trouble
Katherine with background vocals from Cimorelli:
Oh
Oh

Trouble, trouble, trouble
