She knows when i'm lonesome
She cries when i'm sad
She's up in the good time
She's down in the bed

Whenever i'm discouraged
She knows just what to do
But girl ...
She doesn't know about you

I can tell her my troubles
She makes them all seem right
I can make up excuses
Not to hold her at night

We can talk of tomorrow
I'll tell her things that I wanna do
But girl ...
How can I tell her about you

* How can I tell her about you
Girl please tell me what to do
Everything seems right
Whenever I'm with you
So girl won't you tell me
How to tell her about you
Oh ...

How can I tell her I don't miss her
Whenever I'm away
How can I say it's you I think of
Every single night and day

But when is it easy
To tell someone the truth
Oh girl
Help me tell her about you

Repeat *

    Breaking up wd someone is not easy especially if that someone has not done anything but good to u... He is already committed but fell inlove wd somebody else along d way.. Now he is in a dilema,he doesn't want 2 hurt his first girl... But he is happy being wd d new girl.

    Sad story. I don't think he's married. Just a guy changing his mind and feelings and just doesn't know how to tell his former not to hurt her or maybe not to destroy his honor

    i think this song is the theme song of cheaters. this is the proof that boys will never be contented with the girl they are with even if you give nothing but the best for him. he will still look for someone else. just my opinion.

    When i first heard it i thought it was about a married man (who divorced from his wife) and had a daughter all ready but the man found a lady who he was interested in, and didn't know how to tell her about his daughter that just what i thought maybe im wrong.
