You're jealous, you just can't stand to see me get along
Without you like I do, you told me to
Now you're jealous, you don't know how hard it was to be alone
Without you and wanting you, like I do

I would've stayed if you'd wanted, would have been willing
But you said I treat you so badly I can't be forgiven
You know, I would have done anything to make it through with you
But I don't deserve to be lonely just 'cuz you say I do

You're jealous, you don't know how hard it is to be
A woman in love with you when you're so cruel
And so jealous, you don't think about any body's feelings but your own
Are you coming home?

I would've stayed if you'd wanted, would have been willing
But you said I treat you so badly, I can't be forgiven
You know, I would have done anything to make it through with you
But I don't deserve to be lonely, just 'cuz you say I do

So if you're gonna go, you've gotta go and if you're staying, stay
'Cuz I can't take the pain you keep leaving when you go away
If you're gonna go you've gotta go and if you're staying, stay
'Cuz I can't take the pain you keep leaving when you go away

I don't deserve to be so lonely
I don't deserve to cry, ooh
I don't deserve to be so lonely
