Darling, You Know I Wouldn't Lie

Here I am late again for the last time
And like I promised, I just told her goodbye
Please believe me 'cause this time, it's really over
And darling, you know I wouldn't lie

Didn't I come and tell you about her
How temptation lured she and I
Now I know it was only fascination
And darling, you know I wouldn't lie

I had to let her down easy as slow as I could
After all she's got feelings too
But it took a little longer than I thought it would
But this time she knows we're really through

She wanted to hold me forever
And this lipstick shows her final try
And these tears on my shoulder are proof that she failed
And darling, you know I wouldn't lie
Darling, you know I wouldn't lie
