You're asking me to tell you
How to deal with that old flame
When you see her out there
And you still feel the same
How she ripped out your whole heart
And took it with her when she left
You're face to face now looking at her
She's holding on to somebody else

[Chorus]
Tell her you don't love her
And tell her you don't care
And tell her you don't need her
And you don't miss her then
And give her that cold shoulder
And say you've never cried
Just look her in the eye and lie

You may not get over
Some loves in your life
But as you'll get over
You'll know wrong more than right
But you might get lucky
And those feelings fade away
The chances are they'll come back around
To be ready now and just what to say

[Chorus]
Just tell her you don't love her
And tell her you don't care
And tell her you don't need her
And you don't miss her then
And give her that cold shoulder
And say you've never cried
Just look her in the eye and lie x 2
