    Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me
    Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

    Well I gave you everything I had
    But you left me sitting on my own
    Did you have to treat me oh so bad
    All I do is hang my head and moan

    Tell me why you cried and why you lied to me
    Tell me why you cried and why you lied to me

    If there's something I have said or done
    Tell me what and I'll apologize
    If you don't really can't go on
    Holding back these tears in my eyes

    Tell me why you cried and why you lied to me
    Tell me why you cried and why you lied to me

    Well I beg you on my bended knees
    If you'll only listen to my pleas
    IF it's there something that I can do
   'cause I really can't stand it I'm so in love with you.

    Tell me why you cried and why you lied to me
