Midnight, my doorbell rings
You're standing in the cold with a few of your things, and you're crying
I know words for talking slow
You don't have to tell me, I don't wanna know
When times get tough, you always run right back to me
But I don't care, if it makes you feel better
'Cos you shake me up, break me up - when you're around, I can't get enough
Oh you shake me up, break me up - girl, you tear me apart
Yeah yeah yeah ya shake me up
The next day, the frontdoor slams
You're standing in the street with another man, and you're laughing
You move close, you shake his hand
You smile at me like I understand, oh
In your eyes there is a promise you'll be back
And that's all I need to make me feel better
'Cos you shake me up, break me up - when you're around, I can't get enough
Oh you shake me up, break me up - girl, you tear me apart
Shake me up, break me up - when you're around, I can't get enough
Oh you shake me up, break me up - girl, you tear me apart
Yeah yeah yeah ya shake me up
Why don't you make up your mind? You better stop wastin' my time
(Instrumental break)
At night, my doorbell rings
You're standing in the cold with all of your things, and you're smiling
You walk in and say hello
You don't have to tell me, 'cos I already know
No more tears, you won't be standing in the cold
You'll be back with me, and it'll be better, oh better
'Cos you shake me up, break me up, when you're around, I can't get enough
C'mon shake me up, break me up
Shake me up, break me up - when you're around, I can't get enough
Oh you shake me up, break me up - girl, you tear me apart
Shake me up, break me up (repeats out)
