Well the talk on the street
Says you might go solo
A good friend of mine saw
You leavin' by the back door

I need to know
(I need to know)
I need to know
(I need to know)
If you think you're gonna leave
Then you better say so

I need to know
(I need to know)
I need to know
(I need to know)
Because I don't know how long
I can hold on

If you're makin' me wait
If you're leavin' behind
I need to know
(I need to know)
I need to know
(I need to know)

Who would have thought
That you'd fall for his line?
All of a sudden
It's me on the outside

I need to know
(I need to know)
I need to know
(I need to know)
If you think you're gonna leave
Then you better say so

I need to know
(I need to know)
I need to know
(I need to know)
Because I don't know how long
I can hold on

If you're makin' me wait
If you're leavin' behind
I need to know
(I need to know)
I need to know
(I need to know)

Baby, I need to know
(I need to know)
I need to know
(I need to know)
If you think you're gonna leave
Then you better say so

I need to know
(I need to know)
I need to know
(I need to know)
Because I don't know how long
I can hold on

If you're makin' me wait
If you're leavin' behind
I need to know
(I need to know)
I need to know
(I need to know)
Baby, I need to know
