You had your chance one time before
But you decided to walk out my door
What a mistake on your part
To run away, only to return with a broken heart

Say what you want to say to me
And I’ll listen for a minute or two, but that’s all that I can do
Tell me what you came to tell me
Tell me all your pretty lies
And all about your strife
And tell me why

Don’t you come around here cryin’ those fake tears
I told you once before
Before your heart got torn apart
That I would never, ever, have hurt you

Say what you want to say to me
And I’ll listen for a minute or two, but that’s all that I can do
Tell me what you came to tell me
Tell me all your pretty lies
And all about your strife
And tell me why

Tell me, tell me, oh tell me why

Say what you want to say to me
And I’ll listen for a minute or two, ’cause that’s all that I can do
Tell me what you came to tell me
Tell me all your pretty lies
And all about your strife
And tell me why

Oh tell me why, oh tell me why
Tell me, tell me, tell me baby
Tell me that you didn’t mess around
You know I’ll have to show you where the door is found
So tell me, tell me, tell me
