Don't you know he's lonely?
Don't you know he's blue?
Can't you see, he's crying
Every night for you?

Why don't you tell him
Tell him that it's over?
Tell him that you no longer care
For love you thought was there
Why don't you tell him?

If you really love me
Like I love you
You loved and lied up to him
And tell him that you're through

Why don't you tell him
Tell him that it's over?
Tell him you found somebody new
It's the only thing to do
Why don't you tell him?

Is it 'cause you're lonely?
Is it 'cause you're blue?
Is it 'cause you still love him?
Could all this be true?

Why don't you tell me
Tell me that it's over?
Tell me that you no longer care
For love you thought was there
Why don't you tell me?

Getting over, baby
Tell me, it's goodbye
Stop telling me lies
Tell me goodbye
