Lyrics

(Source: Faith and Courage)

You're jealous.
You just can't stand to see me get along without you
Like I do; you told me to.
Now you're jealous.
You don't know how hard it was to be alone without you,
And wanting you, like I do.
I would have stayed if you'd wanted,
I would have been willing.
But you said I treat you so badly,
I can't be forgiven.
You know I would have done anything
To make it through with you.
But I don't deserve to be lonely,
Just cuz you say I do.
You're jealous.
You don't know how hard it is to be a woman in love with you,
When you're so cruel, and so jealous.
You don't think about anybody's feelings but your own.
Are you coming home?
I would have stayed if you'd wanted,
Would have been willing.
But you said I treat you so badly,
Can't be forgiven.
You know I would have done anything to make it through with you,
But I don't deserve to be lonely, just cuz you say I do.
So if you're gonna go, you've gotta go, and if you're staying, stay.
Cuz I can't take the pain you keep leaving when you go away.
If you're gonna go, you've gotta go, and if you're staying, stay.
Cuz I can't take the pain you keep leaving when you go away.
I don't deserve to be so lonely.
I don't deserve to cry.
I don't deserve to be so lonely.
