I Just Don't Know What To Say

You took my love
You took my trust
You turned 'em in
To a pile of rust

Stole my money
And you lied to me
You said we were shootin' it straight
Mutually

Now I think you want
Me to be kind
Bury the past
And ease your mind

But I'm not here
To make you pay
Baby, I just don't know what to say
Baby, I just don't know what to say

It makes me wonder
How long I been your fool
Though it hardly changes
What I feel for you

And that's the thing
I don't understand
It goes to show
What kind of fool I am

Covered in darkness
But I wanna see
What's the matter with you, babe
What's the matter with me

If I could believe
I'd hit my knees and pray
But baby, I just don't know what to say
Baby, I just don't know what to say

I know you're shocked
At my loss for words
'Cause I can talk
The wings off a humming bird
I think too fast
But not fast enough for you
And everything you always wanted
To be brand new

Now my mind is tongue-tied
I got two left feet
I can't dance outta here
I keep hittin' repeat

And it's the same sad song
The jukebox plays
Baby, I just don't know what to say
Baby, I just don't know what to say
Baby, I just don't know what to say
Baby, I just don't know what to say
Oh, Baby, I just don't know what to say
