When it hurts so bad
You got to let go
Can't let him know that he's really gotten to ya

And it hurts so bad
When you're all alone  Those ol' memories 
Keep goin' through ya

And you want to act nonchalant 
But you can't 
 Cause he keeps on haunting you

And when it hurts so bad
You gotta try and pretend 
He's just a casual friend
Who never meant a thing to ya

Well you can fool your friends 
And you can laugh a lot
It's all a coverup 
Of what he really means to ya

And you try and act nonchalant 
But you can't 
'Cause he keeps on haunting you
And it hurts so bad

How can it hurt this bad
When it was never planned
But you stole my heart 
And here I am
I'm possessed by you
I'm obsessed with you
 Guess what I tryin' to say
Is I love you

Now how can I act nonchalant 
When all I want is to spend the night with you
