Eleanor Mcevoy – Now You Tell Me lyrics

You said you'd win me over
I said you never would
You said you'd wear me down, well,
Never thought you could

So how did you make me love you?
You're not even my type
You tore down my defences
Against my best advice

(and) now you tell you you're leaving
Now you tell me you can't go on
Now you tell me you're leaving
Now you tell me
Now you tell me

I'd built my walls around me
Out of common sense
My natural inclinations
Were my best defence

I thought my heart was safe 'cause
I kept it out of your sight
So how did you steal it from me?
Have I no legal rights?

Repeat chorus

I wish I'd never lost my head
I wish I'd stuck to what I said
It wouldn't be me here cryin' now
I suppose I've made my bed
And about those tears I shed
It shouldn't be me here cryin'
It shouldn't be me here cryin'

Repeat chorus ad lib.
