  • Everybody's talking about you and her together
    How could you do that to me?
    And everybody's talking about all the wonderful things you do with her
    Like you used to with me

    Can't you tell by the look on my face?
    I still like you that way
    Now I can hardly remember why we ever lost ties
    But I can tell
    That I love you, and I still love you

    Long as I live (long as I, I can live)
    I'll never get over (you getting over me)
    It's killing me (it's killing me, killing me)
    I'll never get over (you getting over me)

    If you can't be with the one you really, truly love
    Do the two step
    Everybody's talking about you and her together
    How could you do that to me?
    And everybody's talking, everybody's going on about her
    Like you used to with me

    I can tell by the look on your face
    You really like her that way
    And now I'm trying not to lose my mind and start crying
    But I can tell
    That you love her, you really love her

    Long as I live (long as I, I can live)
    I'll never get over (you getting over me)
    It's killing me (it's killing me, killing me)
    I'll never get over (you getting over me)
    Long as I live (long as I, I can live)
    I'll never get over (you getting over me)
    It's killing me (it's killing me, killing me)
    I'll never get over (you getting over me)

    If you can't be with the one you love
    It's okay
    'Cause if you can't be with the one you really, truly love
    Do a two step

    Long as I live (long as I, I can live)
    I'll never get over (you getting over me)
    It's killing me (it's killing me, killing me)
    I'll never get over (you getting over me)
    Long as I live (long as I, I can live)
    I'll never get over (you getting over me)
    It's killing me (it's killing me, killing me)
    I'll never get over (you getting over me)
