Verse 1

The next time you start to talk about you leaving,

And how my life would go on regardless.

I want you to just stop for a single minute and

Look into my eyes, look at my face.

Chorus

Tell me it won't hurt you.

And I'll let you go, no questions asked,

Just fade away into the dusk,

Disappear from your life forever,

But first do me one little favor,

Tell me it won't hurt you.

Verse 2

The next time I'm up at night wondering how you feel,

And why you keep sending mixed signals,

I hope you do something, pick a side, whichever,

Just figure it out, please, make it final.

Chorus

And tell me it won't hurt you.

And I'll let you go, no questions asked,

Just fade away into the dusk,

Disappear from your life forever,

But first do me one little favor,

Tell me it won't hurt you.

Bridge

Master of avoiding questions,

Making me laugh in the process.

You played it smoothly back then.

But you couldn't make me love you any less.

You couldn't look me in the eye

And tell me it won't hurt you.

So why is it that we're living this lie?

Will I ever hear you say you love me too?

Chorus

Tell me it won't hurt you.

And I'll let you go, no questions asked,

Just fade away into the dusk,

Disappear from your life forever,

But first do me one little favor,

Tell me it won't hurt you.
