  • You're asking me to tell you
    How to deal with that old flame
    When you see her out there
    And you still feel the same
    How she ripped out your whole heart
    And took it with her when she left
    You're face to face now looking at her
    She's holding on to somebody else

    Tell her you don't love her
    And tell her you don't care
    And tell her you don't need her
    And you don't miss her there
    And give her that cold shoulder
    And say you've never cried
    Just look her in the eye and lie

    You may not get over
    Some loves in your life
    But as you'll get older
    You'll know wrong more than right
    But you might get lucky
    And those feelings fade away
    The chances are they'll come back around
    To be ready now and just what to say

    Just tell her you don't love her
    And tell her you don't care
    And tell her you don't need her
    And you don't miss her then
    And give her that cold shoulder
    And say you've never cried
    Just look her in the eye and lie

    You tell her you don't love her
    And tell her you don't care
    And tell her you don't need her
    And you don't miss her then
    And give her that cold shoulder
    And say you've never cried
    Just look her in the eye and lie Writer/s: ALAN JACKSON
