Well I heard the story once before
And I know what the tears are for
That's a lie and I just can buy
You came for me so don't try

And I see another man in your eyes
Listen you're old enough to know you can live twice
Listen so I'm telling you just exectly what to do
'Cause you can have from me some advice
Pay the price

And if on another time or place
Another day, another face
I'm telling you babe it's all you know
That one of us should have to go

Listen I know you hate to see me cry
But I have to go and I tell you why
Without your love I can't go on
It's easy and it's wrong
