Babe, I'm sorry but I just can't stand the pain
If you're leavin' 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 leavin'

Ho, you don't have to be cruel to be kind
I'm feelin' that you got me wrong
All I want is you back where you belong
Yea, yea, yea

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 true, yea

Girl, haven't I told you this a thousand times before
Oh, that I don't want you goin' 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 leavin'

Ho, you don't have to be cruel to be kind
I'm feelin' that you got me wrong
All I want is you back, yea, yea

No contest
(I'm tellin' you, yea)
No question
('Cause I need you)
Believe me, I ain't leavin'

No contest
(I'm tellin' you girl)
No question
('Cause I need you, yea)
Believe me, I ain't leavin'

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 leavin'

Ho, oh, oh, why must you be cruel to be kind?
I'm feelin' that you got me wrong
All I want is you back, yea, yea

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 leavin'

Oh, oh, oh, why must you be cruel to be kind?
I'm feelin' that you got me wrong
All I want is you back

Baby don't do the things you do
(Kick me out)
(Break me down)
Baby don't hurt me like you do
(Don't be cruel because I ain't prepared)
Baby don't hurt me, hurt me
(You don't hurt me)
(I ain't leavin')

Baby don't do the things you do
(Yeah)
Baby don't hurt me like you do
(Please)
Baby don't hurt me, hurt me
(Please)
(Don't go)

Baby don't do the things you do
(To be so cruel)
Baby don't hurt me like you do
Baby don't hurt me, hurt me
(I ain't goin', I ain't goin')
('Cause, I'm tellin' you, yeah, yeah)

Baby don't do the things you do
(I warn you)
Baby don't hurt me like you do
