There goes my old girlfriend,
there's another diamond ring
And all those late night promises,
I guess they don't mean a thing
So baby, what's the story,
did ya find another man
Is it easy to sleep in the bed that we made
When you don't look back,
I guess the feelings start to fade away
I used to feel your fire
But now it's cold inside
And you're back on the street
like you didn't miss a beat, yeah

Tell me what it takes to let you go
And tell me how the pain's
supposed to go‐oh
And tell me how it is that you can sleep
in the night
Without thinking you lost everything
that was good
In your life to the toss of the dice
Tell me what it takes to let you go, yeah

Girl, before I met you,
I was
F ‐I ‐N ‐E , fine
But your love made me a prisoner
Yeah, my heart's been doing time
You spent me up like money
and then you hung me out to dry
It was easy to keep all your lies
in disguise
'Cause you had me in deep
with the devil in your eyes

Tell me what it takes to let you go,(ooh‐hoo)
Tell me how the pain's supposed to go‐oh
And tell me how it is that you can sleep
in the night
Without thinking you lost everything
that was good
In your life to the toss of the dice
Tell me what it takes to let you go… Guitar!

And tell me that you're happy that
you're on your own, yeah‐yeah, yeah
And tell me that it's better
when you're all alone…
Tell me that your body doesn't miss my touch
Tell me that my lovin' didn't mean that much
Tell me you and I were deprived of love

Tell me what it takes to let you go, ooh…
And tell me how the pain's
supposed to go, yeah
And tell me how it is that you can sleep
in the night
Without thinking you lost everything
that was good
In your life to the toss of the dice

Tell me who's to blame for thinkin' twice,
no, no, no, no
'Cause I don't want to burn in paradise,
(hee‐ooh) so why don't
