Hey
Ho oh, yeah 

How could the one I gave my heart to
Break my heart so bad
How could the one who made me happy
Make me feel so sad

Won't somebody tell me
So I can understand
If you love me
How could you hurt me like that

How could the one I gave my world to
Throw my world away?
How could the one who said, "I love you"
Say the things you say?

How could the one I was so true to
Just tell me lies?
How could the one I gave my heart to
Break this heart of mine, tell me?

How could you be so cold to me
When I gave you everything?
All my love, all I had inside
How could you just walk out the door?
How could you not love me anymore?
I thought we had forever, I can't understand

How could the one I shared my dreams with
Take my dreams from me?
How could the love that brought such pleasure
Bring such misery?

Won't somebody tell me?
Somebody tell me please
If you love me 
How could you do that to me? 
Tell me

Hey

How could you just walk out the door?
How could you not love me anymore?
I thought we had forever, I can't understand

How could the one I gave my heart to
Break my heart so bad? (Break my heart oh)
How could the one who made me happy (you made me so happy)
Make me feel so sad? (you made me feel so sad)

Won't somebody tell me? (Won't they tell me)
So I can understand (So I can understand)
If you love me how could you hurt me like that? (How do you hurt me oh)

The one I gave my world to
Throw my world away? (Throw my world away)
How could the one who said, "I love you" (you said you loved me)
Say the things you say? (do you really love me)

How could the one I was so true to
Just tell me lies?
How could the one I gave my heart to

How could the one I gave my heart to
How could the one I gave my heart to
Break this heart of mine, tell me?
