We were going together
For a long, long time
And it breaks my heart, girl
To see you walking with some other guy

I been sitting alone here
With a worried head
I've been talking to downtown girls
Who don't believe the things that I have said

'Cause, girl, don't you know
I only tried to hide the pain when I said

I don't really love you
I don't really want you
I don't want to have you
I don't really love you

Now we're hitting the daylight
Morning looking sad
Never knew a guy could feel
As lonely as I'm feelin', oh so bad

Time is going slowly
Dragging like a weight
Like to say I'm sorry
But deep down in my heart it's just too late

'Cause, girl, don't you know
I only tried to hide the pain when I said

I don't really want you
I don't really need you
I don't want to have you
I don't really love you

We were going together
For a long, long time
And it breaks my heart, girl
To see you walking with some other guy

Still I keep on trying
Lonely as I've been
Got to get your sweet, sweet smile
And get that lovin' feeling back again

'Cause, girl, don't you know
I only tried to hide the pain when I said

I don't really want you
I don't really need you
I don't want to have you
I don't really love you

I don't really want you
I don't really need you
I don't want to have you
I don't really
