Monte & The Machine – Tell Me When lyrics

How can you tell me that you want me
When you keep running around
How can you tell me you respect me
When you keep putting me down

When did you decide it was ok to lie
How did you rationalize that
When did you decide it was ok to hurt a friend
This time tell me the truth... Tell me when

How can you tell me that you missed me
When you didn't bother to call
How can you tell me that you love me
When you don't love me at all


Do you lie for me
Not wanting to hurt my feelings
Do you lie for you
Afraid of what you might lose

How can you tell me that you're happy
When your heart's somewhere else
How can you tell me I'm your only
When you're loving somebody else


Tell me when you decided it was ok to lie to me
