Elvis Costello – It Tears Me Up (Live) lyrics

I see you walk with him
I see you talk to him
It tears me up, oh, it tears me up
And I can't stop crying
Oh, baby, I can't stop crying

I see you kiss his lips
And squeeze his fingertips
It tears me up, oh, baby, it tears me up
And there's nothing I can do about it

Oh, baby, baby, can't you see I'm still in love with you?
It's a faithless world we're livin' in
When I turn around and there you are with my best friend
Sometimes when you pass me on the street

You look at me as if to say I'm sorry my, sweet
And being sorry might be enough
Then you look back at him and [unverified] a smile
And that makes me feel kinda rough

Oh, darlin', it tears me up
I see you smile at him
You never tire of him
It tears me up

Oh, baby, it tears me up
There's nothing I can do about it
Baby, can't you see I'm still in love with you?
Still hungry for something I can't have

Oh, it tears me up so bad
Still hungry for something I can't have
Tears me up so bad
Can't you see I'm still in love with you?
Still hungry for something I can't have

Baby, please, please, please
I'm still hungry for something I can't have
It tears me up so bad
Oh, oh, it tears me up so bad
Tears me up so bad
