(Kim Carnes)
When it hurts so bad
You got to let go
Can't let him know that he's really gotten to ya
And it hurts so bad
When you're all alone
Those ol' memories
Keep goin' through ya
And you wanna act nonchalant
But you can't
Cause he keeps on haunting you
And when it hurts so bad
You gotta try and pretend
He's just a casual friend
Who never meant a thing to ya
Well you can fool your friends
And you can laugh a lot
It's all a coverup
Of what he really means to ya
And you try and act nonchalant
But you can't
Cause he keeps on haunting you
And it hurts so bad
How can it hurt this bad
When it was never planned
But you stole my heart
And here I am
I'm possessed by you
I'm obsessed with you
Guess what I tryin' to say
Is I love you
Now how can I act nonchalant
When all I want is to spend the night with you
