Studio version take #2

She's leaving, she's leaving, everybody knows
She's leaving, she's leaving, and I feel like such a fool
She left me standing here just two foot tall
I don't see how she could do it in front of our friends and all
She had better things to do and bigger plans
I thought we could make it with just us two but I guess we can't
'Cause she can't, and I'm only one man but I love her

It's winter, suddenly it's winter, and I'm feeling cold inside
It's different, it could've been so different, if only she didn't feel that need to lie
Did you really think I would not understand
If you said you had a thing to do for a night or two with another man
And how could you believe that I would not know
When you came up to say goodbye, look me in the eye, you let it all show

Oh and baby, yes you hurt me, oh you hurt me deep inside
Yes darling and you hurt me, 'cause I'm just a foolish boy with his foolish pride

I asked you, I asked you, baby you think I'd be enough
And what you told me, and what you showed me
Oh now you want me to believe your loving but don't you think you make that kinda tough
When you didn't even think that I was that strong
That you could really tell me what was going on
The truth hurts, girl, yes I believe that but still
If the truth hurts, honey, the lies they kill me
La-la-la la-la-la-la
Na-na-na na-na-na-na
Na-na-na na-na-na-na
Na-na-na na-na-na-na
Oh-la-la la-la-la-la
Oh oh, oh
