SAY IT LIKE YOU DONíT MEAN IT
© 2003 Bonnie Wilson Daniels

Lately Iíve been thinking
You have something on your mind,
Youíve been acting kinda different,
And youíre jumpy all the time,
Iíve heard the little whispers,
And theyíve spread all over town,
But I wonít believe a single word,
When they say you get around.

Someone said they saw you,
In a bar just down the street,
You were buying drinks for everyone,
And turning up the heat,
They said they saw you dancing,
You were holding someone new,
But I wonít believe a single word,
ĎTil I hear it straight from you,

Chorus:
Say it like you donít mean it,
When you tell me weíre through,
I want to hear insincerity in your voice,
When you say thereís someone new,
A little doubt and indecision,
Is what I need to hear from you, yea,
So when you say youíre leaving me,
Say it like you donít mean it !

When you came home the other night,
Three sheets to the wind,
You seemed to be a bit confused,
And didnít know where youíd been,
Your friends said you were with someone,
And it didnít look much like me,
But I wonít believe a single word,
When they say Iím history.

Sometimes I think about you,
And the things youíve said and done,
Like the time you said you needed space,
And wanted to have more fun,
Your friends say you like to party,
Drink and dance and more,
But I wonít believe a single word,
Though youíre rotten to the core !

Bridge:
Tell me that itís over,
Tell me that weíre through,
But say it with a twinkle in your eye,
So I wonít believe itís true !

Chorus:
And say it like you donít mean it,
When you tell me weíre through,
I want to hear insincerity in your voice,
When you say thereís someone new,
A little doubt and indecision,
Is what I want to hear from you,
So when you say youíre leaving me,
Say it like you donít mean it !

Say it like you donít mean it !
