Lyrics


You, doin' that thing you do

Breaking my heart into a million pieces
Like you always do

And you, don't mean to be cruel
You never even knew about the heartache
I've been going through

Well, I try and try to forget you, girl
But it's just so hard to do
Every time you do that thing you do

I know all the games you play
And I'm gonna find a way to let you know
That you'll be mine someday

'Cause we could be happy, can't you see?
If you'd only let me be the one to hold you
And keep you here with me

'Cause I try and try to forget you, girl
But it's just so hard to do
Every time you do that thing you do

I don't ask a lot, girl
But I know one thing's for sure
It's the love I haven't got, girl
And I just can't take it anymore

'Cause we could be happy, can't you see?
If you'd only let me be the one to hold you
And keep you here with me

'Cause it hurts me so just to see you go
Around with someone new
And if I know you, you're doin' that thing
Every day just doin' that thing
I can't take you doing that thing you do
