  • Dime porque
    Tell me why
    Que ha pensando
    You need to tell me what you're thinking

    I can see it in your eyes
    Every tear, every cry
    Something's telling me
    That maybe it's not the same

    Oh, you can tell me, it's all right
    Everything will be fine
    But if my heart doesn't know it
    If you can't show it
    You're giving me the notion

    That we're going
    Through the motions of love
    If you're going through the motions
    Listen to me, if you really love me
    You've got to do more than try
    If you're going through the motions

    If you really love me
    You've got to do much more than try
    Kick it to 'em, frost

    Give you something going home
    Let's try to be strong
    There isn't anything
    That we can't get by

    Oh, I'm not playing games
    Baby, I'll take the blame
    Cause if it's me you're decieving
    This heart's not believing and
    You're only giving me the notion

    That we're going
    Through the motions of love
    If you're going through the motions
    Listen to me, if you really love me
    You've got to do more than try
    If you're going through the motions

    Do you understand what I'm saying
    Just chill

    Please don't tell me I don't love you, lady
    Please don't tell me I don't care
    All I know, all I know is
    That I need you, baby
    Loving you, wanting you
    I need you always to be there

    Break it down, break it down
    This is the situation
    I cannot read your mind
    If there's a problem, come to me
    I know we can work it out

    If you're going through the motions of love
    If you're going through the motions
    Listen to me, if you really love me
    You've got to do more than try, try, try
    If you're going through the motions
    Going through the motions, girl

    If you're going through the motions
    Love, love, love, love, love, love
    If you're going through the motions
    If you really love me
    You've got to do more than try
    If you're going through the motions
    Everybody, everybody

    If you're going through the motions of love
    If you're going through the motions
    Through the motions, if you really love me
    You've got to do more than try
    If you're going through the motions
    If you know what I'm talking 'bout, baby
    Sing it

    Oh, oh, oh
    Don't keep going through the motions
    Tell me again

    Through the motions
    If you really love me
    You've got to do more than
    Got to do, got to do more than
    Got to do, got to do more than
    Try, try, try, try
