If you don't love me
Tell me right now
If you don't love me
Tell me right now
Don't wait around until I fall in love with you
Then you take my heart and make my heart
Do little things that you want it to
Tell me right now
Tell me right now

If you're gonna leave me
You better leave now
If you're gonna leave me
Pack up and leave now
Don't wait around till I love you so much
I can't love no one else
And you take my heart and break my heart
And leave me all alone by myself
Tell me right now
Tell me right now

Maybe baby if you left now
Maybe I'd get over you somehow
And later on it wouldn't be so hard to take
Maybe one day I'll find someone
Someone who thinks I'm the only one
Someone who wouldn't make my little heart ache
But if you're gonna leave leave leave leave
You better leave now
Oh pack up and leave now
Don't wait around till I love you so much
I can't love no one else
I wish you'd go now
