Babe I'm sorry but I just can't stand the pain 
If you're leaving baby, 
Let me say one last thing 
You tell me I don't care 
But you know it just ain't true 
I got news 
That I'm still in love with you 

Girl, haven't you been around me 
Long enough to know 
Oh, that I need your love 
And I won't let go 

Oh, you don't have to be cruel to be kind 
You break my heart you hurt me so 
Kick me out because I ain't leaving 
Oh, you don't have to be cruel to be kind 
I'm feeling that you got me wrong 
All I want is you back where you belong 

Yeah, yeah, yeah 

Forget about the things 
That we could and should have done 
'Cause it's not too late, no no 
Ain't the best still yet to come 
What we have is a chance to start over 
And make it anew 
So trust what you feel 
Don't hide from what's real 
Every word I say is real 

Girl, haven't I told you this a thousand times before 
Oh, that I don't want you going through that door 

Oh, you don't have to be cruel to be kind 
You break my heart you hurt me so 
Kick me out because I ain't leaving 
Oh, you don't have to be cruel to be kind 
I'm feeling that you got me wrong 
All I want is you back where you belong 

No contest 
(I'm telling you yeah) 
No question 
('Cause I need you) 
Believe me, I ain't leaving 
No contest 
(I'm telling you girl) 
No question 
('Cause I need you, yeah) 
Believe me, I ain't leaving 

You don't have to be cruel to be kind 
You break my heart you hurt me so 
Kick me out because I ain't leaving 
Oh, why must you be cruel to be kind 
I'm feeling that you got me wrong 
All I want is you back yeah yeah 

Oh, you don't have to be cruel to be kind 
You break my heart you hurt me so 
Kick me out because I ain't leaving 
Oh, you don't have to be cruel to be kind 
I'm feeling that you got me wrong 
All I want is you back where you belong 

Baby don't do the things you do 
Baby don't hurt me like you do 
Baby don't hurt me, hurt me 

Don't go
