It was just imagination
The temptation
That went to your head and now you are a victim of circumstance

You’ve beat me to the girl that I always wanted
Thought you had her, brother, but you still don’t own her
Because I’m not through
And there’s nothing you can do (there is nothing you can do)
You never had her
She took you for a ride (she took you for a ride)

I know that it’s a fact that you sneak behind my back
Smiled in my face and deceived me with your lies, but I’m not through
Oh, there’s nothing you can do (there is nothing you can do)
You never had her
Oh, no, she took you for a ride (she took you for a ride)

But this is the part that you knew nothing of
She confessed to me that she toyed with your love
You were just a game that she loved to play
You never had her
Oh, no, she took you for a ride

All of her ecstasy that you had
Was just imagination
The temptation
That went to your head and now you are a victim of circumstance

You had her, brother, you were my guest
You pawned your broken heart just like all the rest and now you are through
And there’s nothing you can do (there is nothing you can do)
You never had her
No, no, she took you for a ride (she took you for a ride)

Was just imagination
The temptation
That went to your head and now you are a victim of circumstance
She took you for a ride
She, a r-i-i-ide
